MangaGamer Contributing To Japan Earthquake Relief, Too


Like several other game publishers, MangaGamer have their roots in Japan, too, in the form of partner company, Overdrive, responsible for the development of games such as Kira Kira and the upcoming Go Go Japan ~My First Trip~.


To help out with Japan’s earthquake relief, MangaGamer are sending all proceeds from sales of their Overdrive and Circus-developed games (such as Da Capo: Innocent Finale) to relief efforts via the Japanese Red Cross until March 31st.


Meanwhile, the iPhone version of KiraKira, published in English by Mtrix Co., has been lowered in price from $10 to $5, and all proceeds from sales of this title are being donated toward relief efforts as well, until March 23rd.
