    Hello everyone.

    As many of you know, Star Odyssey made its world debut last November at the Retro-gaming Connexion event in Crégy-Lès-Meaux, France. What you may not know is that we recorded it. The entire presentation, in English and French, is now available for viewing on YouTube.

    Check it out --

    World debut of Star Odyssey : new sci-fi RPG from Super Fighter Team for Sega Genesis / Mega Drive

    Thanks for your attention and interest.

    They just released an early prototype of the Chinese version of the Beggar Prince game. Nothing all that special, and nothing about SO's release.

    I ordered a copy today.

    I remember the ordering page on their site said something about not taking preorders in advance until the product was ready so they might be ready to ship. I'm assuming that message was there because of some preorder mess up they dealt with in the past.

    What!?

    How are you guys ordering this. I went to the Star Odyssey page and clicked the "Buy the Game" link and it just takes me to the same page it always has.

    It talks about the game not being available for pre-order and will be released early 2011.

    I don't see anywhere to buy it!

    Okay. I figured it out.

    Apparently if you are using Chrome it links you to the old "Anti Preorder" page. Using Fire Fox It takes me to the "new" ordering page!

    Brandon, you guys might want to look into this. I can see it causing lots of confusion.

    I use Chrome and didn't have your problem so it is probably something else.

    The problem was an out of date cache. If he'd just hit F5 (or Ctrl+F5) to refresh it, the page would have updated.

    It's released, I just checked out the history page.

    http://www.starodysseygame.com/history.htm

    In 2007, the only known English language prototype of Star Odyssey was acquired by Super Fighter Team. Upon verifying its completeness, the company approached current IP holder Starfish-SD in order to negotiate a license to produce and publish the game worldwide. An agreement was officially reached between the two companies in 2009, paving the way for this long awaited game to finally reach eager customers outside of Japan. The finished product was released on June 22, 2011, for use with all NTSC and PAL based Genesis, Mega Drive and compatible video game systems.

    That was the issue. Thanks for the heads up. That was weird, I have never had that problem or heard of that problem before.

    I ordered mine 4 or 5 days ago and it hasn't shipped yet. I have 6 days off for the 4th of July and was hoping to get the game in time to enjoy it then... but it looks like it will still be a while.

    I received a conformation email a few days after I ordered it but haven't heard anything since.

    Hello, everyone.

    Thank you for your continued interest in Star Odyssey. We appreciate your support.

    Nope, no "mess up."

    I've just never been big on the concept of pre-orders. So, starting with the release of Zaku, we decided to do away with them. Even though we've always consistently met our projected release dates, I felt that putting people through an arduous pre-order process was no longer necessary. The mailing lists are much more convenient, in my opinion, as they allow potential customers to keep informed about our products without having to plunk any money down.

    I think what really got me hating pre-orders was the whole Halo 2 debacle. Though I did not personally pre-order this game, I knew quite a few people who did - and the damn thing was slated for release at least a half-dozen times over the span of around two years. Each new projected release date was eventually cancelled and swapped for the next, which was pretty ridiculous. They had no idea what they were doing. By the time the game finally did release, some of the people I knew didn't even care about it, anymore; the frustration had buried their interest.

    Pre-orders were necessary for Beggar Prince, both to gauge interest in the product and to guard against the potential threat of early piracy. With Legend of Wukong we had upped our copy protection methods but nearly ran over budget on development. While pre-orders certainly weren't necessary for this game, they were helpful.

    Several copies were mailed out to the press on June 22nd, the same day we began taking orders. Shipping of the game to customers began on June 27th, and continues throughout the week.
