Notes

The second announcement thread was posted on March 27th, 2020.[2]

Welcome to the second ever Fruitbat Indirect, where you get spoiled to the hottest 100% Orange Juice news! Hope everyone's doing well, staying healthy and staying home! #100orange (thread)
FBF Indirect Party Time.png

Let's just jump right into it, shall we?
With another recording session with Orange Juice finished earlier this month, we're now excited to reveal the next set of character voices for 100% Orange Juice! #100orange

Before we get any further, just a friendly reminder that you can join our official Discord server to always stay up to date with the latest mem- news!

With the new voices, we've finished voicing all the regular units in the game! You know what that means...

You got it, it's witch time!

To kick things off, the energetic Solid Witch from the world of Alicianrone is getting a voice by Toda Megumi (戸田 めぐみ)! Among her many roles she's known as Hajime in New Game!
Solid Witchicon.png

And of course she's not alone! Everyone's favorite introverted Hair Witch, Ceoreparque, will be voiced by Murakami Natsumi (村上 奈津実) - perhaps best known as Saotome Ako in Aikatsu Stars!
Witch's Hair Lockicon.png

That's a lot of Girl Power for you! But we're not done yet! We also have some mystery characters to introduce!

The first mysterious new character's voice will be performed by the ever so wonderful Maruyama Miki (丸山 美紀), who you already know as the voice of Marie Poppo, Sora and Natsumi! Though, it feels like we might've seen this character somewhere already...
FBF Indirect Silhouette 2a.png

Very mysterious indeed, hmm...

The second mystery character comes in a pair with first - and she's voiced by Aizawa Saya (会沢 紗弥)! She voices Seki Hiromi in The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls. Is it just me or is there something unusual about that silhouette...?
FBF Indirect Silhouette 2b.png

What's this, we have even more mystery characters!? I'm not sure if I should be showing all of this, but... *ahem*, well, if you insist...

This time I'm confident no one will be able to figure it out by the silhouette...! This upcoming character is voiced by Koyama Momoyo (小山 百代)! You might know her for her role as the main heroine of Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight, Karen!
FBF Indirect Silhouette 2c.png

That's all, hope you enjoyed the --- just kidding, obviously! We still have one more character and voice to reveal!

This final, certainly unrecognizable silhouette belongs to another new character that's fast approaching... I wonder if anyone can guess who it will be.

And here we are! This secret character is voiced by none other than Tange Sakura (丹下 桜), the voice of Nero in Fate and Sakura in Cardcaptor Sakura!
FBF Indirect Silhouette 2d.png

That's all for the voices, thank you for following along with our little announcement!
You can expect to see all of this in the game by summer!
Which one are you looking forward to the most?

Before we end, just a small heads-up that we're currently working on something interesting for the next new 100% Orange Juice event... it'll be pretty different from anything we had before!

Don't forget that 100% Orange Juice, Acceleration of SUGURI 2 and 200% Mixed Juice are all completely free on Steam until March 30!

Hello all, and welcome to the new Fruitbat Direct! (Who ever came up with that moniker in the first place?? Someone please suggest some better name for these segments! *for now let's tag it #fruitbatdirect*)
🦇🦇🦇

Your host for this epic Twitter night is PhleBuster! That's me, hi! Hope everyone's doing well today!
If you use Discord, remember to join our official server for more news and silly cryptic teasers!


New & Upcoming Releases

Wow, preparing for this show I thought I wouldn't have much to talk about... but actually we've been up to a lot recently, so buckle up!
Let's start with some general news... it's autumn, right? That means Steam Game Festival (Autumn Edition) too!

We just released a free demo for the charming puzzle game Treehouse Riddle to be playable in the #SteamGameFestival - hope you'll have a chance to give it a try! The demo can be finished in <1 hour.
Coming out this winter on PC/Switch!
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1155900/Treehouse_Riddle/ #treehouseriddle

Don't forget to wishlist it on Steam if you enjoy the demo! It helps a lot!
As for other stuff we've worked on this past summer...

If you've missed it, we currently have 2 Nintendo Switch limited physical editions in the works and coming out soon!

First is the SeaBed limited edition by East Asia Soft, which is looking really cool!
https://eastasiasoft.com/games/SeaBed #SeaBedVN

The promised Chinese translation of SeaBed has had significant delays this year, which has unfortunately delayed the estimated release... but I don't think you'll need to wait much longer until it's released!
I can't wait to see even more people playing this wonderful story.

Second, First Press Games announced last month the physical edition for Neko Navy - Daydream Edition!
It's going to have a super fluffy premium package - the Collector's Edition even includes a cat plushie!
https://firstpressgames.com/collections/neko-navy #NekoNavy

This limited edition is also currently taking preorders, and is releasing this winter, with a few extra features too! Don't miss out on the fluffiness!

And if you haven't given our latest #visualnovel release Jiangshi x Daoshi a try yet, you can play the full EP1-2 release for free!
It's a wee bit crazy... but also crazy good!
https://fruitbat-factory.itch.io/daoshi #JiangshiVN

The Chinese translation of Jiangshi x Daoshi including Episode 3, is almost complete, so you can expect to see the Episode 3 release soon!
And if you thought EP1-2 is crazy...
FBF Indirect Daoshi.jpg

Another game we've put a lot of work into this past summer is Acceleration of SUGURI 2!
Did you notice we've added 2 all-new and super cute character costumes to the game too, for Sora and Suguri? And there are more coming... #AoS2
FBF Indirect AoS2.jpg

There are also biweekly Acceleration of SUGURI 2 community tournaments, which always have sponsored prizes!
The next one is tomorrow, so why not give it a try? New players are always warmly welcomed!
(Obligatory "We got #rollback"!)

100% Orange Juice!

When it comes to autumn, it's a good time in many parts of the world to go to the woods and look for mushrooms! Have you been finding any?
p.s. only eat mushrooms you know to be safe!🍄🍄🍄
FBF Indirect Shroom 1.jpg

Did you know there's currently an ongoing mushroom-themed event in 100% Orange Juice, where you can safely pick and eat all the mushrooms you want!
Don't miss out on the fungi rewards!
https://store.steampowered.com/app/282800/100_Orange_Juice/ #100orange
FBF Indirect Shroom 2.jpg

The event continues Ellie & Lulu's adventure, and introduces 2 new characters, Arnelle and Maynie!
I wonder if we'll ever see those two again...
FBF Indirect Shroom 3.jpg

The event was released alongside 100% Orange Juice version 3.0, which also added Steam Workshop support!
It seems to have gotten crazy popular, and we already have over 500 mods available!

Which one is your favorite?
I'm not biased, so I recommend the Poppoformation mod! It's very blessed, and I think everyone should install it.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2235133542
FBF Indirect Poppo Mod.png

Since we're in October, there are probably certain expectations about what the next 100% Orange Juice event will be...

...and I'm here to tell you they're probably spot on.
FBF Indirect Teaser 3a.png

As for other events, I know a lot of people fell in love with Bounty Hunt when we first ran it this spring, and for all of you I have good news.

Coming this winter!
FBF Indirect Teaser 3b.png

I'm also currently in the process of shifting through the *massive* amount of suggestions we received for the Community Card Pack 3! ETA to finish: probably a month or more!
Thanks........
After that and a few other steps, there will be a card art contest!

Did that wrap up what I had planned to say? I guess it's enough?🤔

👋Thanks for tuning in to this month's Fruitbat Di- wait, what do you mean I forgot something?


Character Voices

Oh, right, right. I might've promised some juicy leeks about voices as well!
FBF Indirect Leek.png

Covid has been making voice work more difficult than usual this past year, but I'm happy to say we were able to have another great recording for new 100% Orange Juice voices!

And I have the privilege to introduce them to you right now!
So without *cough* further ado, let's get right into it!
🥁🥁🥁please!
FBF Indirect Reveal 3a.png

First we have... the (self-proclaimed) greatest treasure hunter of all time - Arnelle herself!
She's voiced by Ishiguro Chihiro, who you may know as the voice of the Vocaloid singer Yuzuki Yukari!
FBF Indirect Reveal 3b.png

Following (literally) on her heels is her trusty follower Maynie, who has a bit of a wild side to her...
She's voiced by Tanaka Takako, best known for her wonderful role as Hina in the Hinamatsuri anime series!
FBF Indirect Reveal 3c.png

Besides this duo, we have 2 more mystery characters to reveal...

Our first mystery character is very cute and hardworking! You'll have to take my word for it for now!
They're voiced by Kouno Hiyori, the voice of Cure Sparkle in the Healin' Good Pretty Cure anime!
FBF Indirect Silhouette 3a.png

As for the second mystery character... I can say this one's very fluffy!

They're voiced by Sato Azusa, the voice of Fuwari Midorikaze in PriPara - as well as the beloved voice of your favorite pudding doggo QP in 100% Orange Juice!
FBF Indirect Silhouette 3b.png

I know it can be frustrating to be unable to guess who these characters might be for now, but you won't have to feel vexed for long - all 4 characters will be coming before the end of the year!

Here's a group picture with all 4 upcoming characters - I wonder which one you all are most looking forward to? #100orange
FBF Indirect Voice Cast 3.png


Before we call it a day, there's 1 more cool thing we're currently working on!

I can't actually show much, it's very early stages... but it's something cool! Really cool!
This is all I can show for now... and it might be a while before there's more... sorry!
FBF Indirect Teaser 3c.jpg

Well, that's all for today's Fruitbat Direct (seriously someone come up with a better name kthx! #fruitbatdirect)! Thank you for tuning in to your local Twitter!
Hope you had a good time!
Everyone stay well! 👋

Her partner (note: not a chicken), the great navigator Cook, is brought to life by Kanemoto Hisako, who anyone who watches anime or plays video games is likely familiar with! Her many roles include Ika Musume in her titular anime and Djeeta in Granblue Fantasy.
FBF Indirect Reveal 4c.png

But that's not all! We also have 2 new mystery characters who received their voices and will be appearing in the early summer!

Our first special guest is Yamanaka Masahiro, giving voice to ❓❓❓! He brings a very unique tone to this upcoming character, which should be a ton of fun!
