Launched a few days ago on Kickstarter, OMORI is “a surreal, exploration, horror RPG” by Fangamer friend and awesuma artist omocat. She’s doing all the art, writing, and directing for the game, while slimegirlsmusic and spaceboyfriendmusic are providing the soundtrack.
There are lots of neat game features and a wide array of quality backer rewards, so jump on this one soon! :)
Kojima throwin’ down some wisdom.

Meiji-era Ace Attorney game’s first trailer ⊟
We don’t get any gameplay, but here’s a glimpse of the 3DS game’s new hero Naruhodou Ryuunosuke (an ancestor of Phoenix Wright) and his assistant Mikotoba Susato. We also get to see what courtrooms looked like
in turn-of-the-century Los Angelesduring the later years of Japan’s Meiji period.
Ace Attorney’s new assistant: Mikotoba Susato ⊟
I mean, I guess it’s no surprise that the assistant in the Meiji-era Dai Gyakuten Saiban would be a woman in traditional dress, but here she is, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke’s assistant. According to Court-Records, she’s a “lover of foreign detectives and a progressive dreamer!”
The color scheme of her outfit also seems like a callback to Maya Fey’s look, though she doesn’t seem to be related to the Fey/Ayasato clan of spirit mediums.

INTERVIEW: TIM SEELEY ON ‘GRAYSON’, NIGHTWING’S ALL-NEW SPY ADVENTURE
By Chris Sims
Last week, the news broke that Dick Grayson would no longer be operating as Nightwing, instead being relaunched into a new spy-themed adventure series called Grayson, by Tim Seeley, Tom King and Mikel Janin. Spinning out of the events of Forever Evil that saw his identity revealed to the world, the new series finds the former Robin, former Nightwing and former Batman (dude has a long resumé) joining up with Spyral, a mysterious organization that first appeared in Batman Incorporated.
ComicsAlliance: I’m a fan of Dick Grayson, but I grew up in the ’90s, so my attachment to him is mostly from the Chuck Dixon/Scott McDaniel Nightwing series, rather than being a fan of him as Robin or a member of the Teen Titans. I always thought of him as a solo hero, this guy who was a cop by day, which was an interesting twist. Because of that, I think of him as this adaptable character who’s had all kinds of different roles, from sidekick to team leader to becoming Batman himself and secretly owning a circus. But getting into the espionage game, that’s a new approach. How did it come about?
Tim Seeley: As far as how they made the decision for the end of Forever Evil and Nightwing, that was before my time. I basically just one day got an e-mail that said “What would you do with Dick Grayson as a secret agent for something? We don’t know what, we just think he might work really well in some kind of spy genre thing, where his name is the title of the book, it’s not about secret identities.” I didn’t really think I had any ideas for it, so I sat on it for a few days, but then I was thinking about Spyral.
I loved Morrison’s Batman Inc. stuff, all the Batman stuff by Morrison was great. I was thinking about how he’d throw out a hundred ideas an issue, and maybe not even follow up on five of them. I knew he was doing a book with Burnham over at Image, and thought “Well, Grant’s not going to use Spyral. He’s done with that.” It occurred to me that if Dick was going to be a spy for something, it would be such a shame to waste Spyral, which was so full of unlimited potential. It already had this tie to the Bat-verse, it had great visuals, it has this “Are they good guys or bad guys?” thing. They were founded by a Nazi scientist, but they seem to be working for the side of good, we know they hire superheroes because they hired the Hood — all these things hit me, like “Why don’t we use these for Grayson?”
New Ace Attorney 3DS game unveiled ⊟
According to this Famitsu scan posted by @Lite_Agent, this new game takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (1868 - 1912, a.k.a. Rurouni Kenshin times) and naturally features a new star — it looks like that star is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. He has a sword, too. Cool sword, new guy.
The full title, according to @CourtRecords_, is Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. As mentioned previously, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is once again heading the project, after taking a break from the series with Dual Destinies.
