The long-awaited preorders for Kud Wafter has opened at around 7am JST online and in stores (obviously limited to Japan for the stores). While I was writing the essay, I repeatedly checked Hobby Search Japan and Key/Visual Arts’ site to see if there were any updates, but throughout the day there weren’t any updates forthcoming on either of those sites. Of course I checked Amazon.jp as well, but seemingly the webmasters didn’t care to update their sites at all.
Anyhow, I checked just about an hour ago on Hobby Search and Amazon and they both have it now up for pre-order! I decided to order it from Hobby Search Japan, but for those who can’t read Japanese, Amazon.jp would be the better choice as it offers English interface.
Both sites are asking for ¥5481.
In addition to having some extras as part of the Initial Limited Release edition, apparently the Maxi Single CD for the opening theme song “one’s future” as well. That’s a limited edition CD so it’s bound to be rare!
On a side note, last week’s update on the Kud Wafter Blog said that the official release date would be revealed with the June issue of Dengeki G’s magazine. Well, although I haven’t received it yet, I can confirm via amazon that the release date will be June 25.
