Are these ports coming out this year or not? Steam still shows them as having a 2020 date, GF is out on PS4 in Japan but still nothing else.

I believe Ginga Force's Steam release date was recently altered to be even less specific...

I even asked Rising Star Games about a release date and no response. Hope they didn't pulled the plug on porting it due to the pandemic.

Hope Rising Star Games doesn't repeat Degica's mistake and cripple another set of Qute games with DRM. I had been looking forward to trying out Eschatos for ages and was really disappointed that happened.

I presume the delay is just because of the pandemic, since the ports were announced back in February I believe? GF had an August 28 date but now it's gone and replaced with just 2020.

At the very least a PSN listing for GF is up in the US, same as with Ketsui Deathtiny...

In case it's of any help, the Japanese PS4 version has complete English text support - menus, subtitles, everything. Been enjoying it a lot, having slept on the 360 version ages back. I hope they bring Eschatos over at some point too, because while I own both on 360, my current machine is dead.

Just got a response on Twitter, they said nothing to share yet. Presumably pandemic stuff getting in the way.

Any word on its spin-off Natsuki Chronicles, though?

From that same article:

"A spin-off, Nakusaki [sic] Chronicles (2019) will also have a western release estimated during the fall of 2020."

Finally, sheesh, took a while though, but it would have been nice for Natsuki Chronicles to come out the same time as Ginga Force, but it can wait, I suppose, since I already have it on X1, but to get the whole Qute trilogy on PC will be good too.

I just picked up GF on PS4 thanks to you guys spotlighting it. I really like it so far. I do have one pretty big complaint though. The screen gets filled with stuff and the background can change direction. It made it difficult to tell what is dangerous to your ship. There's energy power ups and coins everywhere covering the bullets. It's a problem.

I hope we don't wait too long for Natsuki Chronicles.

Perspective changes definitely made collisions confusing in a few spots in Eschatos. Looking forward to playing this soon. I had ignored it when it first came out, but I hadn't played Eschatos at the time which got me interested in M-KAI's other games.
