Hello everyone, it's Tsuchiya.
It got very warm out of nowhere today. I had brought my coat with me because I was in the middle of an official visit, but it ended just becoming excess luggage. Well then, for this issue of "Pulling the Trigger", I want to talk to you all about the Fan Thanksgiving Festival event I had commented about briefly on the previous issue.
As we announced today in the Ar Portal and in other places, the Ar tonelico Fan Thanksgiving Festival will be held this March 21th (Sunday). As for events, the memories of the Entamatsuri Fan Gratitude Festival (the name of the event where Ar tonelico 3 was initially announced) are still fresh in your minds, right? I considered that just repeating the same thing would make for a boring event, so we'll make something special: we'll talk about things that we haven't mentioned (because we couldn't!?) either in normal printed books and magazines or in the web, which will allow us to make a deeper gratitude festival for Ar tonelico 3, and for the entirety of the Ar tonelico series. Of course, all of this is an excuse to take a step into making a slightly deeper festival than those that are aimd at the normal public, one aimed at those who have played the Ar tonelico series where we'll discuss things that have been kept a secret until now in a way that would be impossible otherwise, like stories related to the RAH's creation, to the characters' creation, and like those, many others.
That also extends to the guests, as we'll be mainly calling over the development staff that wouldn't normally appear in events, which I think will allow us to bring into the light several development secrets that have never been discussed outside the company. After all, the concept for this event is [Thanks for playing Ar tonelico! Gratitude Party].
We also have plans to broadcast the most important excerpts of what happens during this event in NicoNico Douga afterwards. However, since we also made this event with the meaning of taking a breather in the location where it'll take place, please, please, make sure to come if possible.
We'll be putting out a registration form for the event, so if you're interested, please make sure to grab the application from the site we especially set up for it!
Well then, we'll stop here for the time being.
See you all next issue!
