As you all know, I’m a huge NIS America fan. I’m also a fan of developer Gust, and their RPGs. No game has solidified this as much to me as my play-through of Ar Tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel – it was a great, great JRPG. But, I got sent a preview copy a couple months ago for review, which means I still need a retail copy for my collection, right? Right! So, it arrived today, the special edition box which includes a soundtrack CD (happy day!), an art book and, of course, a copy of the game. But, NIS America also sent along a pretty spiffy – or should I say dirty? – “Purge Party Calendar”.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, “purging”, in gameplay terms, basically means the girls strip for you during battle. So, what I’m looking at right now is, for all intents and purposes, a swimsuit calendar featuring the girls from Ar Tonelico Qoga. Want to see pretty pictures? Hit the break for a wealth of unboxing pics that will make you blush.
