[Mobile] Quick look at… World End Heroes

World End Heroes first released on November 13th, 2018 and was made by Square Enix who is now infamous in my books for making the most dull and boring mobile games catered to females. It was first announced on 26th of July, just about a week after the release of Square Enix’s other female oriented game “Idol Fantasy“, with a “teaser” video though I wouldn’t call it a teaser video, as Square Enix puts it it’s a “voice and sound video” because that’s how they want to advertise it.

Instead of revealing information of what kind of game this will be, Square Enix focused mainly on announcing the voice actors with the teaser video as well as the official website having a list of very popular and iconic voice actors–and this website would stay unchanged for a couple more months, with nothing much to let on what kind of game it is beside the voice actors that will appear in it. Clearly, Square Enix only wanted to focus on gaining hype through casting famous voice actors as well as popular stage actors rather than the content of game itself, but clearly it worked getting the public interested in it as 250,000+ people pre-registered for the game without knowing much about the gameplay. Hell, they didn’t even release a video of what the gameplay is like until 1 whole day before the game would release and even then that video remained vague and short. It really shows you how confident Square Enix was with their upcoming game’s gameplay.

If you would like to read my thoughts on Square Enix’s other female oriented titles check my review on Idol Fantasy and my twitter moment on Kimi to Kiri no Labyrinth (with the latter being a glorious dumpster fire.

It’s not required reading but it would help with reading my review as I’ve left out some stuff in this review as I’ve touched upon them in my live tweets while playing World End Heroes, you can check out a compilation of those tweets in my Twitter Moment:

Otherwise please enjoy my (probably short and definitely biased) review.

Stream starts at time stamp 17:00

On 29th October, Readyyy! held a stream called Readyyy! Showww! (the triple w’s are intentional and in reference to the use of www‘s [used to express laughter] in the comments of streams). It was to commemorate 50,000 pre-registrations and featured the voice actors of both SP!CA and La-Veritta.

You can watch the stream in the video above if you missed out. Though I’ll do a little summary of everything shown and announced during the stream as well as other announcements from the official twitter below the “read more” tab.

[Switch] Review – Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts-

Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts- is another game by by OperaHouse and DIGIMERCE that released in English on October 11th, 2018. It was originally a mobile game back in 2014 and got a Nintendo Switch release in Japan back in August 2nd, 2018. So it took about 2 months for an English release which makes for an interesting timeline.

If you haven’t read my post on their previous game with English ‘translation’ (Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku), the translation is pretty bad. Bad to the point where it is hard to read. Iris School of Wizardry suffers the same bad quality of translation where the translation hasn’t improved nor become worse than Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku.

I was contacted by DIGIMERCE to review this game, I was intending to review it anyway, but keep in mind I won’t pull any punches when reviewing this game. I’ll try not to focus too much on the translation for the story/route review parts but I will focus on it very heavily at the end of the post where I sum up all my thoughts.
