Here’s a short teaser that was just uploaded today (well, it’s past midnight now, so technically it was yesterday lol) for the new musical updated version of the YoRHa stage play. The clips used in the video, I believe, are from the original Ver.1.0 run, but there may be a few shots from the Ver.1.1 opening sequence as well. I’d have to break down the video frame by frame to really tell. xD

Last night during a live broadcast on NicoNico, Sakaguchi Hironobu from MISTWALKER revealed that character designer Fujisaka Kimihiko will be joined by Yoko Taro and Okabe Keiichi to create a new story scenario in the smartphone application game Terra Battle.
Sakaguchi revealed the rough color sketch and line art version of the main protagonist for this scenario during the broadcast. I made the following images directly from the video.
You can also hear three new themes that Okabe created for this collaboration with likely vocals by Nakagawa Nami.
More about this and the new IP by MISTWALKER will be revealed next Saturday during another live broadcast, which you can view on NicoNico here.

1:32pm Update: The smartphone application game SINoALICE went into maintenance mode last night at 10:00pm (JST), was temporarily up around noon but then died once more about 30 minutes later, and has now entered an unexpected extension of said maintenance, listing the time of availability as “undetermined”.
2:30pm Update: The game came back up around 2:30 and was SUPER FAST! I got through 5 stages in just a couple minutes… but then around 3pm, it started throwing me back to the title screen iver and over again….
7:30pm Update: The game is currently in maintenance mood for an undisclosed period (from 6:30pm to who knows when).
10:30pm Update: According to the official Twitter account, the game won’t be available until sometime tomorrow. Get used to this.

6/9 1:00pm Update: The game was back up around 10am this morning and playing great. I got through the end of Akazukin and the entirety of Kaguya-hime’s first chapters.
Then around 11:00-now the server’s been messing up as usual: not connecting, timing out, throwing you back to the title screen, etc.
The official Twitter also mentions the server is currently unstable and that they’re trying to figure out what the cause is…
2:30pm Update: The battles are completely broken for me. I can defeat the enemies in Wave 1 but it won’t advance to Wave 2…and the timer continues to tick down…
Another odd thing it’s doing in battles right now when it’s working is that when I select a weapon to use, the weapon card disappears once it’s used…but no attack actually happens. I repeat this over and over, and the weapons list refills and everything but there is no attack animation or anything.
3:00pm Update: And down again for maintenance.
8:55pm Update: There is no chance for the game to be back up yet today. They’ll be shooting for getting it back up tomorrow… We should be used to this schedule by now…

6/10 12:00pm Update: The game was up around 5am (JST) but performance was poor closer to 10am.
Another round of maintenance began at 9:30am and will continue for an unknown period… again.
3:30pm Update: The game has been scheduled for an extended period of maintenance and is planned to be back sometime tomorrow morning.
They’ve also said that they’ve been able to make some steady improvements and are very greatful for your understanding. Maybe they’re just about on top of this problem…?
The game servers are up and running… I was able to start a new game but it’s currently stuck at 1%… Perhaps the servers are going down again…

The initial release of the game was delayed a couple extra weeks due to further work on the servers to get them ready for the necessary traffic, and everything should have been set for the June 6 release… but shortly after the release, the massive strain to the servers proved to be too much. Thus the game’s been down since sometime yesterday afternoon.
That being said, some people were able to play for a little bit before the servers went down. Here’s an example:
I will get more info up when I can! In the meantime, here’s one of the early images that I translated:
The application is now available for download here but won’t be playable until later this afternoon between 3-5pm!
Stay tuned for more updates! I’ll make some gameplay videos later tonight!
I’m working on setting up how to record video and such from my phone. A test run was already completed successfully, so whether I’m able to add my voice over or not, be sure to check my page for related vids! 😀
You can check my test-run video of Valkyrie Anatomia here:
So, it turns out that the final scene in the final live recitation story played out differently on stage than what’s actually printed in the script. This was potentially done to avoid spoilers for the actual performance. This particular ending wraps up the story in a much more positive manner than how it’s actually written in the script.
Since there is no direct print version of this anywhere, here is a rough translation that I made tonight, but please be aware that there could be some mistakes here. I pick up on page 200 of the script, then after the S.P. mark, it’s all new.
