MangaGamer Annnounce Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia



MangaGamer just sent out a press release for Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia, a fan-disc spin-off of Edelweiss. Story-wise, the game stars Takase Sakura and Fujisaki Rin, two supporting characters from the first game that won enough popularity polls in Japan to get their own game.


As for the story…


“On a deserted southern island, there lies an all-girls school where students learn the mysterious art of alchemy. This strange academy, known as Eiden Academy, is the setting of Edelweiss, a tale of laughs and tears shared between the heroines, who lived their lives free of men on this island, and Haruma Kazushi, one of the silly boys who came here to score. This is an all-new game which picks up where Edelweiss ended.”


Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia will release on March 20 for 19.95 Euros (around $27), so everyone annnoyed about high prices might actually be interested in it. It’s by the developers of KiraKira, and the artwork is very similar. Hopefully, it’s as good as KiraKira, too.
