So I get a call in the early hours this morning from the boss at NitroPlus telling me that they have added the product description for Miracle Mirai to their line up at nitroplus.co.jp.
Some of you may have already guessed from my previous visits to NitroPlus and the screenshot teasers that I posted from time to time - Mirai is to star in her own eroge which is currently being produced by Nitro Plus entitled "Miracle Mirai." I wanted to hold off for just a bit longer to break the news but NitroPlus just had a shareholders meeting which covered their overseas strategy - specifically localizing their products for the English speaking market and working with me to promote their goods starting with Miracle Mirai. I met NitroPlus a while ago and the boss fell in love with Mirai-chan when I handed him by dannychoo.com business card which has Mirai on it. He immediately said "Mirai-chan no eroge tsukuruyo!" or "lets make a Mirai-chan eroge!"
I've prepared a few Miracle Mirai banners that you may want to stick up on your site - I will return the favor in the comrades page and at Otaku.fm ^^
I have already received a ton of disapproving mails regarding the game. While the decision to let Mirai-chan star in an adult game was a difficult one, I felt that it was the right decision. Not only will it help promote this site, this partnership works for Azami sensei, NitroPlus and will also help sales of the figure which will be based on the main image pose. How do you feel about this announcement?
The tentative release date is 16th February 2009. I'm currently pushing to get the figure released at the same time so that we don't double our marketing costs - will keep you updated.
