other Nagano things

The April Newtype issue also had an interview article about other things Nagano has been working on: his wife's new CD album and bonus items for the deluxe edition of Phantasy Star Online 2.

Re: FSS Designs 4?

The only mechanical changes to new FSS are the replacement of all MH with GTMs and spaads with gat-blow energy...

Re: FSS Designs 4?

The short answer is that Gothicmade has replaced Heavy Metal L-Gaim as the baseline for Five Star Stories. I imagine Nagano actually explains somewhere why he made that change, but since I don't have Designs 4 yet I don't know if it's in there anywhere. The joints are weird because Nagano is not a m...

Re: January 2014 Newtype Scans

My assumption is that the suffix letters on the new Sirens are still the same as the old (the numerical part appears to be a revision number), so it would be a national guard standard Siren rather than the heavy combat Arcana Siren. Presumably the arm spikes are a thematic evolution of the shoulder ...

Re: November

Nagano's twitter says Designs 4 is planned for February 2014 at ¥4800, which is significantly more expensive than expected. I am hoping this means it will be a very big book rather than that the cost of color printing is going up.
