Today, MangaGamer sent out a press release about the discontinuation of their Navel titles Soul Link and Shuffle!
Due to a change in management with our partners at Navel, Soul Link and Shuffle will be discontinued as of March 31st. Those who have purchased either title prior to the cutoff will retain their copies of the games in their account. Owners will continue to be able to download, install, and uninstall their copies of both titles as usual, but sales will be discontinued until further notice.
We hope everyone will take this opportunity to check out both titles while the chance still lasts.
Currently, the discontinuation only includes both the Soul Link and Shuffle! digital copies, as well as the Shuffle! hard copy; Really? Really! and Tick! Tack! will still be available for purchase at this point in time. You will still, however, be able to possibly find hard copies of Shuffle! while supplies last after the cut-off date from outside retailers, such as Rightstuf and Jlist.
So, if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing either title, now would be the opportune time to decide if you’d like to add either of these titles to your eroge collection. For your pleasure, we’ve included a synopsis as well as some sample CGs of the two titles below.
Fall, 2045C.E. Aizawa Shuuhei, a second year cadet enrolled in Central Military Academy’s main division, is dispatched to the orbital space station Aries on a training mission. There he reunites with his younger brother, Ryouta, and his childhood friend, Nao, both of whom reside there as cadets enrolled in the preparatory division.
Then a unidentified space ship under the control of Jararacas, a radical terrorist organization, suddenly attacks the Aries and seizes control of the main control room. With all communication lines cut off, Shuuhei and the others have no way to escape; they’re trapped. Trapped in space, 250 miles above the Earth with nowhere to run. In the midst of this desperate situation, the cadets must gather their courage and rise up to take back the Aries. As they do, they draw ever closer to the fearsome truth lurking behind this incident…

Shuffle! follows the romantic life of Tsuchimi Rin a Japanese high schooler, who finds himself being sought after by a variety of girls. The world of Shuffle! consists of humans living in harmony with gods and devils. Despite their respective positive and negative connotations, both races are equally kind and good-natured. Your task is to choose a lover from the five girls the game offers.
