Ho-lee carp!

FANTASTIC DS adventure game. The English translation already exists, so no reason this shouldn't end up coming to the rest of the world, unless there is a licensing problem. I didn't play all the endings, and would seriously consider a repurchase, especially if the graphics have been upgraded at all.

The graphics have been overhauled, but all the game elements have been removed from the iOS version, leaving only the story.

So it's like a visual novel now? Interesting. So, did they keep the branching paths and just cut the puzzles? If that's the case, I would still recommend it for the story.

If Chunsoft can DO iOS, where the blank are all of them Mystery Dungeon games?

Oh man, no kidding. Shiren the Wanderer on DS is my favorite roguelike ever.

One of the things that make this game is so great is breaking up the story a little with the puzzles. 999 is one of my favorite games of all times, but I would have a really hard time recommending this version.

They used "Smart Sound Novel" for its name so I wonder if this game has full voice cast or it is just text only...

Man, I am so interested in Japanese VNs for iOS with full voice cast. Unfortunately they are so rare - either too expensive or Japan App Store only ;(

Guess we will wait a minimum of half a year to get a translated version. Shame too, the 'sequel' is currently free on vita for ps+ members.

I imagine the parts that are voice acted in the original (only the speaking parts) are what's voice acted in this port.
