Sen no Kiseki IV Teaser Site is Now Up

Earlier today, Falcom has unveiled the teaser website for Sen no Kiseki IV. We have no other information on it besides what is seen on the site.

The teaser site does feature a countdown, however. There is a bug where it is based on your local time and time zone- however, source code digging has shown that the site is expected to unlock at 3:00pm Japan time. This is 6:00am GMT, and 1:00am Eastern.

This also lines up nicely with the shareholder meeting happening tomorrow, as well- within an hour and a half of the meeting starting, in fact. With this teaser site, it’s pretty clear that Falcom intends to reveal information on Sen no Kiseki IV at the meeting.

Until then, all we can do is study the image and watch the countdown eagerly.

Falcom’s 2017 End of Year Financial Report – Large Increase in Year End Earnings, and More Sen no Kiseki Releases for 2018

[Editor’s Note: You may have noticed that the site’s sidebar on the right has disappeared for this article. Don’t worry! Endless History isn’t broken! I have removed the sidebar for this article alone to ensure a clean presentation of the graphs and charts in it. The real estate was much needed in some cases.

Zwei: The Arges Adventure is Coming to PC

XSEED Games has announced that Zwei: The Arges Adventure, released in Japan as Zwei!!, will be receiving a PC Release. The alarm clock from the original game as well as the minigames have been integrated into the game itself, and a lot of quality of life improvements have been made. The PSP Arrange soundtrack has also been included as an option.

From the steam page:

Filterless fashionista Pipiro and poindextrous punster Pokkle are ordinary step-siblings facing an ordinary day in their ordinary little burg…until a grand theft macguffin occurs and they decide to become unlikely heroes for cash and glory (in that order). This goes about as well as you’d expect.

Zwei: The Arges Adventure, will be releasing in Winter 2018.
