Greetings, visitors, and welcome to yet another warm and fuzzy edition of Go West!, your weekly column about Japanese import games, companies going under, and saluting those we’ve lost in battle.

After what seems like an entire month of silence, the Japanese games industry is finally releasing new titles again. This week’s list is full of niche things, but I know that’s exactly the sort of stuff you folks enjoy. I’ll be picking up a few new games myself; one particularly for streaming purposes, the other because I owe it to the developers in question to play their final game.

With that out of the way, let’s get this party started!

Here we have a couple of videos from Imageepoch’s final game, Stella Glow. The one up tops shows off Rissette’s song magic, while the one below focuses on Popo and her music.

I played through the demo version of Stella Glow, and it seemed to be a perfectly serviceable SRPG. Very little stood out to me, but on the flip side it wasn’t some offensive piece of garbage. 

I’m willing to give IE one last shot. What about you?

Imageepoch’s Stella Glow resurfaces, with Sega at the helm. Nothing particularly new here, though we get a look at some of the allied and antagonist characters in the bottom right hand corner.

  • Dorothy the Ripper. She uses dolls to fight. Peeps are scared of her.
  • Nonoka. She’s Sakuya’s bodyguard ninja. Kind of a ditz. Wears a box on her head.
  • Yuan. Started a business when he was 10. He lends a helping hand to Alt and his friends.

Sega has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming Imageepoch developed SRPG, Stella Glow.

It looks a lot like an Imageepoch developed SRPG. In fact, I recently realized that it’ll be a battle of Imageepoch properties this year with Marvelous developing the Luminous Arc, and Sega publishing Stella Glow. Who will win?!

Does anybody win?!

I don’t even know anymore.

Anyway, the trailer looks all right.


Imageepoch is probably not in a good place right now. There are lots of rumors floating around that the developer is closing its doors/their offices have been vacated, etc, and this latest news certainly seems like evidence of these things.

Imageepoch’s Stella Glow (their only announced game) for the 3DS had its site erased off the internet, and has recently resurfaced under Sega’s umbrella. As of now, the game looks to be published by Sega. In fact, nowhere on the new site is Imageepoch’s name at all.

Whoops. You’ll be able to check out what might be Imageepoch’s last game on June 4th.
