New bonus content, UI improvements, and an update on release timing!
This update adds the bonus scenario chapter included in pre-order versions of the Japanese release.
When all the girls' clothes go missing, leaving them stranded in their underwear, it's up to Shimei to stay on task long enough to uncover the truth! What villainous brigand would dare do such a dastardly deed?! What terrible fate has befallen the missing Hijikata and Kondo!? Discover the answers to these critical questions and more!
This chapter unlocks after completing Chapter 3! It's a whole lot shorter and a heck of a lot less serious than any of the main chapters, but we hope you don't mind a little spicy silliness. Now available in both English and Chinese! You can access this chapter from...
[h2]Improved Chapter Select[/h2]
The initial Chapter Select screen in the first Early Access version had two problems.
One, it only barely had room to display all the content in the game without the bonus chapter, and it couldn't do it prettily. Going horizontal has its price.
Two, a lot of people never even noticed it.
We hope you'll agree that this new version looks better, and it's certainly capable of supporting the full content of the game.
To avoid spoilers, this is the most minimal possible version of the new chapter select screen.
Looks a little bare-bones, right? Play a little and it should start to look a lot more populated!
In addition to adding new chapters as you unlock them, it'll also now get a little fancier according to your progress...! And, in order to help new players find this screen, the Start button now changes to say Chapter Select after the first time you start the game.
This is a really great feature that's always made the game a lot easier to navigate on repeated visits, so we hope more players will take advantage of it now!
[h2]Improved Chinese Localization[/h2]
The Chinese team took another pass over the whole game looking to find and remove misspellings and other typographical errors. Additionally, we took another look at formatting to make the whole thing a bit easier on the eyes.
We expect the whole game to be fully translated, edited, and ready for release in May 2020! Follow us on Twitter @shira_vn for all our news that's fit to share!
