Falcom LINE Stamps vol. 4 / Gurumin Released

gurumin_stamp

Obsessed with Line? You can add a Gurumin collection to your stamp now. These stamps feature many of the characters, and are going for 50 coins in the app, and $.99 on the website. LINE is a mobile instant messaging application that lets you talk to people in groups or individually, and litter your conversations with colorful and animated stamps.

Most of the Line stamps are, as far as I know, available internationally, though I’ve heard reports that some people have issues trying to purchase them. If you do run into issues trying to purchase them, let me know so that I will be able to report as such as well.

If you haven’t played around with LINE, the app is free for iOS and Android.

Falcom Calendar Updated for Jan 2015

cals1501

With 2015 around the corner, Falcom has updated their calendar to have the Jan 2015 wallpaper on it. This wallpaper features Falcom Academy SC, with the characters and marks the date of its airing as well as the other product being released this Jan.

The calendar itself has also had these two items added:
1/4 – TV Anime, “Everyone Assemble! Falcom Academy SC”
1/21 – Falcom Character Songs Collection Vol. 1 – Estelle Bright (cv: Akemi Kanda)

They have also added the following dates for holidays. On these dates, Falcom will be closed for vacation:
12/23 – Emperor’s Birthday
12/27 ~ 1/4 – New Year Holiday

As a result, we can expect the end of the year special to be announced either just before or just after. Possibly with the holiday during the ordering period.

The wallpaper can be found in the following resolutions:
1024×768
1280×960
1920×1080
1920×1200

At some point in January, all of the 2014 calendar wallpapers should be made available without the calendar data on Falcom’s website.

jdkTV Episode 18 Now Available on NicoDouga

B28RxNLCEAAkYYc

Episode 18 of jdkTV features part of the talk show with Toshiharu Okajima and Toshihiro Kondo during the Falcom Exhibit that took place during September.

Okaji and Kondo pour over a chronological list of games released by Falcom with many anecdotes for in-company development. One of the things that Kondo points out that Ys I Eternal is a turning point game for the company. Many of the games that preceded it were enjoyed, even by the staff, as players of the games. And those earlier games ended up influencing the development of the games that have been made from Ys I Eternal and onwards.

There are a lot of interesting comments made regarding the company’s history- such as the debate between making a new Ys title (which would become Ys VI), or making Ys III Eternal- or Kondo’s first Falcom title. There’s talk about Xanadu Next and the effect that Sora no Kiseki FC had on the company, as well.

The interview is cut short, however, with a promise that it will be to be continued in the next jdkTV episode. So stay tuned!

jdk_band_live

The end of the video is marked with a short excerpt from one of the Falcom jdk Live & Talk Show events on 9/27, with the band playing an acoustic version of Fate of the Fairies from Sora no Kiseki SC. (Despite the mislabeling on the video?)

You can find the full video here.
