That Makai Wars Tease Was For A Fan Event, Not A Game

image April Fools? The Makai Wars OOOO thing Nippon Ichi Software was teasing is unfortunately not a game starring Asagi. It’s for a 20th anniversary event called Makai Wars Live Episode 1: Asagi’s Counterattack.


The perpetual protagonist of Nippon Ichi software’s next game will be there along with a bunch of artists. Voice actresses Suzuko Mimori (she’s Asagi and Fuka’s voice actress) and Maria Kawamura will attend the event along with Disgaea series composer Tenpei Sato, ULTRA-PRISM, and the band Fairy Empire.


Makai Wars Live will have two shows at Yokohama Blitz on July 13. Tickets are 6800 yen ($70).

    … I was prepared for this but yeah, dunno how to put it. Tears will come.
    Anyway, I wish the best to those who’ll be able to attend the event!

  • Go2hell66

    Everything is lies!

  • majestix1988

    i would guess….April’s Joke for Asagi(not us?)

  • zweii

    I’ll never get over this deception….

    …for a about a whole 2 seconds.

  • Himiko

    It’s Asagi. That was expected!

  • ivanchu77

    Expected, but still disappointed :I

  • Safros9

    i think this is a good thing. At this point I don’t think I’d want a game with her as the main character considering that she’s been a running joke throughout the series.

    • The poll from before shows the majority disagrees with you.

    • Well I do want her to have a game because I loves her. So… I am still hoping she’ll get her own game eventually.

    • At this point, Makai Wars would likely consist of her going through each of the games she has been a cameo in… we’d just experience it from her point of view. As much as I hate to admit that, it’s likely the approach N1 will eventually take.

  • Göran Isacson

    Now I want to see what happens at the event, if it is somehow related to Asagi or just included her name to further the running gag. Maybe… just maybe, the gag this time around will be that Asagi THINKS the event is just a cruel joke, but then they reveal an ACTUAL Asagi-game at the event! Wouldn’t that be a headtwister?

  • Sardorim

    Why must they taunt us?

    I… I want Makai Wars.

    Asagi deserves it so much.

  • Expected. I’m not even mad.

  • Of course, who knows what they might end up announcing at this event in question.

    It’s actually a little cool that she’s getting an event named after her– and haha, it’s happening on my birthday! That’s neat.

  • Kevin Lor

    Never knew Suzuko Mimori did the VA for those two character. She’s pretty cute too hehe

  • Well… I think we knew it wasn’t a game. I am just happy it isn’t an April Fool’s joke. I would have punched a baby, :/ Here’s to hoping Makai Wars (or any game I dun care as long as Asagi is the MC) is coming.

    • There are many ways to pull an April Fools joke. And one of the ways to pull one off is with the good ol’ “throw out some vague info to the public and let them go on a Wild Mass Guessing Frenzy” tactic! I think they learned that from Square Enix, which may also become a joke for one of NIS’ future titles.

      • Nah it is not an april fool’s joke. An april fools joke is (for news) posting news that people want (or sometimes don’t wants) and then tell them it is fake.

  • Inb4 they announce Makai Wars at the Makai Wars event. Seriously, are you people really that silly? It’s an event, for N1’s 20th, but it’s also tagged with Makai Wars.

    Nothing about a bunch of Music artists is a -war-.
    *sigh* People are too pessimistic nowadays.

  • kaizin

    well should have known i shall cry for tears of sadness but maybe there is some hope left even a little maybe ‘-_-.

    I’ll never get over how overpriced concert tickets are, as someone who never goes to concerts.
