Rance 8 promised for 2011

According to a blog post from December 29th on Alice Soft’s official staff blog, the venerable eroge company is committed to “definitely releasing the next Rance game within the coming year.”

Alice Soft has had release delays in the past so this should be taken with a grain of salt, but it seems we can expect at least an announcement and tentative plans for release before year’s end. December 2011 will be the five year anniversary of the release of Rance 7 (Sengoku Rance)… how time does fly.

As the next eroge I’ve pledged to play immediately and continuously from start to finish upon release, coming out around the next New Year holiday would be good timing. You can do it, Alice!

    Alice Soft are recruiting debuggers for Rance VIII, starting from March, so presumably that means that all the scenario and most of the gameplay will be in place by then, suggesting that a mid-year release may be more likely than an end of year one?

    That would be awesome. I’m not holding my breath for a mid-year release, but if that’s what we end up with I’ll be pleased as punch. It does seem they’ve been working on the system for quite some time now given the sample images shown in the Rance Chronicle over the past year. Maybe it’s further along than I’m imagining!
