Battle Moon Wars Act III delayed

Fans of the Type-Moon universe (Fate/Stay Night, Kara no Kyokai, Tsukihime) will be saddened to hear that the third installment of Battle Moon Wars has been delayed. The original planned release date was December 12th 2006, but for reasons unknown to me, the new release date is now set to February 2007.

Saber is summoned by Kohaku.

So what exactly is Battle Moon Wars? It’s a roleplaying game made by the doujin group named “Werk Zwei“, with various well known characters appearing from the 3 Type-Moon novels such as Archer, Saber, Nanaya Shiki, Emiya Shiro, Arcueid, Ciel, and more. The gameplay itself is reminiscent of the battle systems of both Final Fantasy Tactics and Super Robot Wars – players of the above two games will immediately notice the mass similarities between the three titles. Battle Moon Wars itself is a full Japanese game with no current English support, so players with little to no knowledge of the Japanese language will a bit of trouble going through the game. Thankfully, Psieye of the Beast’s Lair community has provided a rough translation of the purchasable skills / abilities for each character.

The first two series of Battle Moon Wars introduced a load of Type-Moon characters. A quick list of the current cast:

Fate/Stay Night cast members:

Emiya Shiro
Rin Tosaka
Sakura Mato

Tsukihime cast members:

Akiha Tohno
Arcueid Brunestud
Nanaya Shiki
Nrvnqsr “Nero” Chaos
Shiki Tohno

With the third act, Battle Moon Wars will add a plethora of Kara no Kyokai characters, including Ryogi Shiki herself. It’s a good time to be a Type-Moon fan ^_^.

Saber performs her signature attack, Excalibur.

The new Act III cast members (from top to bottom, left to right), Ryogi Shiki (Kara no Kyokai), Sion Eltnam Atlasia (Melty Blood), Kaleido-Ruby Rin (Fate/Stay Night), Aozaki Tohko (Kara no Kyokai).

Also, if anyone knows of a place where I can grab a copy of the super awesome Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto BGM used in episode two (more specifically, during the Hario vs troupe battle near the end of the episode), I’ll be forever indebted to you! In closing, I’d like to throw this in:
