Last month Jaleco Holdings sold off their video game business to Game Yarou who “bought” the company in the loosest sense of the term. In reality Game Yarou assumed all of Jaleco’s liabilities. Ouch.
Is this decision going to kill Ougon no Kizuna (Bonds of Gold) which is currently in development at Jaleco? Nah. Recently, the Ougon no Kizuna page was updated with character profiles and giant boss battles as a “greatest point”. Also, the product information page lists a product code, price (7,140 yen or US$78), and a spring release window for Japan. Still no word on an international publisher, but a project this big for a small company seems bound to get picked up by someone. Hello XSEED? NIS America? … Agetec?
