Dude, this is like... dude. Words cannot describe how awesome this is.

It's like if Superman and Batman did it, and they gave birth to AWESOMENESS

Seriously, I cannot get over the sheer cuteness and awesomeness of this. Seriously bro, seriously.

MUCH LOVE FOR BRS!

Shoving Nanoha and BRS together is like the most awesomest thing to ever exist ever. There is absolutely nothing that will stop me from getting this, even if I have to sail to Japan in a reinforced cardboard box.

Seriously, this just blows my mind. I just... seriously.

Seriously.

This thing already tastes like diabetes, and I'm just looking at those images. :/

Not that it's a bad thing really.

The beauty of it YOU DON"T HAVE TO UNDERSTAND A WORD!

You just stare at the cuteness until you squeal like a little girl and explode!

I wouldn't be too surprised if this never came out in English though...

What we need to do is make something awesome that the Japanese would want and then refuse to release it in Japanese.

TAKE THAT! How does it feel now jerks!?

Yeah, I'd like to see a Nendo Hayate-chan as well. Oh well, the next movie will help matters and if the game does well, we'll see her in a sequel.

Nendo-Hayate would be awesome cool to see. (Perhaps TOO awesome...

It would also even out the teams as well; you have Haruhi, Mikuru and Yuki from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya; Saber, Rin and Rider from Fate/Stay Night; Black Rock Shooter, Dead Master and Black Gold Saw from Black Rock Shooter but only Nanoha and Fate from MGLN...

After strolling around a couple of sites and stuff I found some interesting info:

The game is around 20% complete and is supposed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Good Smile Company, the guys who make the little chibi figures.

They're planning to have 10 series (or more) in the game, with 1-3 characters from each series
(Meaning there could be around of 30 or so characters)

Also, they're not using regular Fate and Nanoha, they're using Movie versions. I just thought this was interesting so I added it. It might explain why there isn't any Hayate or anything... (which sucks, because as everyone knows more Hayate is equal to more awesome)

Already, there are little whispers of a sequel (although most/all of it is speculation and/or wishful thinking. Acutally, maybe just ignore this one... But apparently the reason why they are 'only' using 10 or more titles is in case a sequel DOES pop up, in which case they will have lots more 'droids to add. Seriously, 30 chibis running around isn't enough? I'd settle for the 11 right now and be happy with it! Meh, more is good I suppose XD)

It's some kind of RPG with a high school thing attached, as well as some kind of dancing thing and you can pet them. No one knows what the game play will be like. I doubt even the guys making it know. (Although they're probably just throwing every idea they have into one giant Katamari ball of awesome!)

Apparently you can team a bunch of the cuties up and pull of team attacks and team dance-battle attacks and such. (Yes. I want to have Fate challenge Dead Master to a dance off, and then have Saber join in for a scrap before heading off to high school with Nanoha and Haruhi. It will be the greatest thing ever seen.)

Banpresto and Namco Bandai are working on the game. If this means anything important, let me know XD

As you all know, it is extremely unlikely this will ever be released outside Japan. You JERKS!

Seriously, it's like the guys behind the game are like "let's shove everything in a blender and sell the juice that comes out." But in a good way.

I haven't been this excited about a game since ever. Seriously, I can't get over this. It's killing me!

I mean, the concept is so beautiful but you have to admit the idea is so damn random! Not even I can pull off such a feat of perfect randomness, even after huffing enough SLB fumes to hide a pod of whale. And not one of those midget whales, I'm talking about a full sized, proper whale. Like, whatever the biggest whale is (Blue, right?) or some random prehistoric monstrosity that doesn't exist any more. Who the hell came up with this!?

Because I want to shake his/her/it's hand or whatever godly appendage they use.

Really, I'm super hyped about this, am I the only one? It just makes me want to go buy a whole lot of nendoroids and waaaaait a minute...

You know what, never mind. If this is some kind of incredible sales promotion thing then sign me up. It's too awesome to resist!

Hell, just imagining it suddenly put me in the mood to create crack pairings. In my mind, right now, no joke, Dead Master is trying to seduce Fate away from Nanoha. Would this ever, EVER happen in any other situation? No, I would have never thought about it.

Oh crap, Dead Master is now yandere. Run Fate, ruuuun!

...

Wow, I'm just sitting here and imagining a huge mess of crazy scenarios. Which brings me to my next point: what the hell is the plot/story of this game?

The only 'logical' thing I can thing of is one day Haruhi plays with her 'droids too much and then MAGIC happens.

Oh wait, you know how in the OVA the BRS world is like some kind of alternate dimension or whatever it's supposed to be? Maybe it's like that but cute?

Maybe a combination of both? Maybe some god somewhere said "Today, let there be KAWAII" and miracles happened.

Maybe the guy who made this game just happens to read/write a lot of cross over fics, said 'screw it' one day and just awesome'd the whole world.

Or maybe it's some kind of horribly complicated contest of sorts, something like: A mysterious being (gods/aliens/wizards/etc) gathered a bunch of people together and had them compete in a horribly complicated challenge involving fighting skeleton monsters in a high school while dancing and looking as cute as possible. And the winner gets the Holy Grail or a crown or something.

Seriously, I have no idea what's going on. Every time I think about this game I get all giddy and stuff. I'm just ranting now, I can't stop. Usually I'm not like this but DAMN this is getting me high!

Oh wait. Multiple worlds exist in the Nanoha universe right? Maybe they just happen to stumble across one that is made out of cute and fuzzy kitties and awesome.

Oh damn, new image: The Star-Light Breaker can only be used by doing some mad dance moves. Nanoha is actually moon-walking across the stage of my mind while charging up a SLB and it is so incredible.

...

I'm not even going to describe what I just saw Fate too. Because I can't, there aren't enough words in the world to describe the epicness of oh there we go, it was epic. Fate did epic. She epically did epic things.

Yeah, I'm going to stop here before I just ramble on and on...

Gameplay? You don't play the game, the game plays YOU! It sucks you in with it's sugar coated cuteness and then BREAKS YOUR HEART when it never comes out in English.

Also, it steals your wallet and drinks all of your milk.

Crap, I depressed myself. Come out in English damn youuuuu! Or at least please let a bunch of people sit around and translate the game and post it on some site somewhere!

Preferably translate the whole game though, I hate lurking! T_T

If Monster Hunter can have an English Patch for the Japanese release, you can bet that somehow, someone will make one for this game.

Cross your fingers. :P

GENTLEMEN! ...and ladies, I guess

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! This almost offensively cute game has now been announced for release! Make sure you get stockpile all that insulin for 23rd of February next year!

So yeah, drown in the epic cuteness that is Nendoroid Generations!

Incidentally, you can also get a wedding dress download. Yes that's right, make one of these chibis your waifu. Don't all of you crowd Fate at once please, Nanoha gets first dibs.

By the way, new characters include Reimu, Marisa and Remilia from Touhou, Kurisu and Maiyuri from Steins;Gate as well as Louise from The Familiar of Zero.

There is a special edition you can get which comes with 8 nendoroid plus charms as well for those of you who love collecting these things (glances over to my collection)

It's me again, gushing over a game that I will probably never ever get! How are you fine NanoFate lovers today? I hope your doing good because I'm here to make your life suck a little harder! (*points to my signature*)

YES! I come bearing even more stuff about this game that I would instantly buy if it was in English (or at least a patch or something!); Nendoroid Generations! And now I'm here to bore you with it! So suffer with me! BWA HA HA HA!

Annnnnyway, you know what the Absolute Cannon is? It's when Nanoha and Fate combine their powers to shoot a stupidly amazing laser of incredible proportions.

Also, the name is pretty cool if I had to say so myself~

Oh my goodness! Skip to 00:07 in the video and look behind Nanoha.

Look at the smoking pile of ash in the background.

Nanoha's previous victim.

Even in these adorably cute small bodied versions the White Devil is still there!

(*growl growl growl growl growl*)

Spoiler:

GOD-!
DAMN IT!

Now that I've worked myself up about this game (for like what, the 4th time now? 5th?) I really freaking want this little son of a b###h! Even though I know that playing an RPG without being able to understand it will be freaking hard as hell!

...Eh, I thought I've calmed down but now I'm entertaining slight thoughts of buying it. Which is ridiculous, it would be a huge hassle to play in every conceivable way. I wouldn't know what items did what or what I'm supposed to do or-

...

Holy son of a walrus.

Is that Madoka? Like, Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Madoka?
...So like, Nanoha and Madoka fight each other or something?

F##k
F##k f##k f##k f##kitty f##k
F##K

I really want this game now. What the hell Japan?! That's cheating! THAT IS CHEATING! DAMN YOUUUUU!

Like HELL you can throw these two magical girls together and not expect me to be interested! That has got to be the cheapest 'buy this, even though it's all in Japanese' tactic you've ever thrown my way! ...Wait, why is my typing speed slowing down so-

...Congratulations Japan. I'm reaching for my wallet now. You bastard. You absolute prick. Not only have you made me make nonsense rants about the same game AGAIN you're actually making me want to try buy it.

No wait Natus, calm down. As AWESOME as it would to see Nanoha and Madoka trade blows (You bastards!) there's got to be a reasonable and sensible solution to this problem.

Okay? What's the chance that someone will make an English patch?
...Yeah, thought so

Well, what about an English script? I at least understand the story that way. I mean, they did it for MGLN A's GOD didn't they?

...Well yeah, that was just a bunch of summary notes but still-

...Yeah, I know they never finished the English script for BOA but that's because GOD got in the way and-

...

Well yeah, that's true but-

...Yeah, I guess but-

...

No, I'm pretty sure that-

...

OH COME ON IMAGINARY CONVERSATION WITH MYSELF! You are being so unfair!

...

No, YOUR mama! (Wait...)

Right then. Chance of this being translated into English? Pretty damn low. I have a feeling that this game isn't high profile enough to convince enough people to get together and translate it in their spare time.

So then. To those of you who are still putting up with my selfish giant wall of texts, thanks for listening to my b###hing. I just might buy it later when the price drops or something. Maybe a miracle would of happened by then...

tl;dr version: I'm very pissed this isn't in English

Hello there NanoFaters! And how are you today? I really don't care, I'm just here to show more videos about how FREAKING AWESOME this game is.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with this game. I know, crazy right? Who knew?

So then. We know that Nanoha and Fate can team up and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way but that's to be expected right? If you have Nanoha and Fate together it's only natural they would work together.

But this game has a HUGE boatload of different franchises in it! I guess what I'm trying to say is...

What other combinations are there?
The answer seems to be: whatever the hell we feel like.

I haven't seen a 3-way beam like this since the end of A's!

Main character bonanza! Everyone is screwed!

Don't you want to experiment and see what other ridiculously-unfair-to-the-bad-guys combinations you can try out? I know I want to see what carnage Nanoha and Madoka can do together!

Oh god, If you replaced BRS with Madoka in www.youtube.com/watch?v=ed1rEfOMPug

Think of the destructive power...
And if you put Marisa, Fate and Homura togeather on another team...

SO people, anyone here know how to make an English patch? I've got the game and ripped it already...so if anyone is interested, we could push the patch online. I've got a couple of after-school hours and spring break days to throw away :)

I love you just for offering!~~ Here, have this internet muffin basket!

I'd love to help on this! (I mean, I'm the one that rants the most about this game anyway XD)

...Well, I'd love to help but I'm kinda useless ^^; Don't know how to make patches, don't know any Japanese... If there's anything I can do though, don't hesitate to ask!

Hm, if we can't get a patch up and running, at least a script of the story mode or something would be nice...

[edit]
To help convert people to this most noble cause, here are some more videos of the game!
(The first two are trailers. The last one is the opening from the game)

Right then, non-boxes.

Due to this and that, such and such a thing has happened causing certain events to transpire.

You don't need to know the details but let's just say...

...
...

I got the limited edition version of this game at a good price.

Anyway, I've ordered it and it's on it's way. I'll tell you what I think of it when I get it and drum up even more support for this game using first hand experience!
