Over an hour of Japanese indie trailers
Comic Market (or Comiket for short) is scheduled to take place this upcoming weekend, starting August 14. There, hundreds of thousands of people will pour into the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center to get their hands on rare self-published manga, music, games, and other curiosities.
There’s a lot of interesting stuff in there — and some not-so-interesting stuff. The new shooters from Siter Skain and Astro Port definitely piqued my interest. As did that Limbo clone. But far and away my favorite game in the bunch is illuCalab’s Maboroshihashi Sky Drift, the racer with Touhou characters surfing on top of one another. Good lord, that has to get localized. Please bug Playism (who recently published the same developer’s Takkoman) and Nyu Media until that happens.
