Final Update

Filed under: † nemissa @ 7:59 am

We regret to report that Icaro will no longer be updated.
You may have noticed that updates here have been pretty non-existent in the past year. Maiji and I have had little time and resources to update with, despite trying to narrow the focus of the site. Icaro will still remain on the web as is; we’ve really enjoyed working on the site and we want the current content to continue to be accessible.

One final update has been made to the links and FtNW info section. The oekaki will be closed upon’s deletion and the shop will eventually be merged with one on The Icaro email will remain open, but it will only be checked sporadically. Comments will be disabled on this update blog due to the overwhelming spam it’s been receiving.

However, we are still working on other projects that involve Shadow Hearts. We are planning to release a doujinshi under the circle Time & Tide within the next year.

Thank you for all your support, we had a great time with the site and the community!


We’re not dead!

Filed under: † nemissa @ 7:48 pm

You may have noticed updates here at Icaro have been far and few between. I apologize for that; Maiji and I have been extremely busy due to school and such. In light of that, we will no longer cover every update from the official Japanese website. We will still of course continue to cover major news regarding SH; but minor things like magazine appearances, JP-only events, etc will not be covered.

In recent news, IGN has a roundtable discussion with Nautilus regarding FtNW.


SH:FtNW bound for US release

Filed under: † nemissa @ 9:00 am

New publishing company XSEED Games has announced today they will be bringing Shadow Hearts: From the New World to the US. An official site for the game has been put up, along with links to product pages at EBGames and GameStop. (the links seem to currently be broken, but SH:FtNW does show up in EB’s search, so hopefully this means it’s legit!)

EDIT: Here’s an article at IGN that confirms it along with some interesting info about XSEED.

RPGamer translated the new character profiles and info on the battle system for SH:FtnW. (probably a better translation than I can do anyway. ..)
