ALPHADREAM CORPORATION, developer of games like the Hamtaro licensed games and the Mario & Luigi series, has filed bankrupcy due to being insolvent.
Although they had a notable profile of games and managed to have a revenue of 300M yen for the year ended March 2014, high development costs and the inability to cover such costs proved too much for them, having reached 465M yen in liabilities as at 31 March 2018.

It's really sad. I love Mario & Luigi (though some of the last didn't like so much). Maybe some of the staff could get together again to make a game inspired by its legacy. Also there is the game Koto Battle which is one of my favourite currently obscure games.

KotoBattle literally has a song called "Let's Go". I love this song, a warm gentle mustard yellow aesthetic. I'm wondering if that's a coincidence or if Mario & Luigi's "Let's Go" SE is a reference to it, which is hard to say without evidence. Literally でかけよう might be from 出掛ける and volitional form; so "Let's go out". The first few notes are similar, but not identical to Final Fantasy 7's The Prelude (0:00-0:01). You can simulate them on a keyboard as C, D, E, G
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
