History of fortissimo//Akkord
fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier is a Japanese 15+ visual novel developed by La'cryma, the same company that made True Tears, Sora o Tobu, Mittsu no Houhou and Sora wo Tobu, 7tsu Me no Mahou, and Circus, well-known for their Da Capo games. It was released for PC on September 30, 2010. Its 18+ limited edition (the same game with an ero artbook) was also released on the same day. fortissimo serves as an incomplete product as the ending left the readers at a cliffhanger and there were no voices at all. On March 31, 2011, a more completed version of fortissimo titled fortissimo EXA//Akkord:Bsusvier was released on PC with its limited edition. fortissimo EXA serves as a finished product for the original game with the completed story and added voices for all the characters. One week later, La'cryma released a patch for the epilogue of fortissimo EXA's ending, named Ein Re-Encounter. This epilogue differs as it depends on which of the four heroines (Sakura, Sayuki, Momiji, Miki) your choices led you to. Around one year and three months later, an 18+ version titled fortissimo EXS//Akkord:nachsten Phase was released on PC. This version added in H-scenes for all the main and side girls in the game. It also added in 2 new routes, Ahorn der Flamme (Momiji) and Schnee Kristall (Sayuki), while keeping the main route, Ein Kirschenbaum (Sakura). This version introduced one new character and two alternate versions of two existing characters: Kuri Himeshiro (new), Loki, and Schwarz Ritter. La'cryma included in the 3 new openings for each of the routes. They also incorporated Ein Re-Encounter as an unlockable scene after you unlocked everything in the game (scenes, CGs, BGM, glossary). A new version, titled fortissimo FA//Akkord:nachsten Phase, was set to be released in December 20, 2013. This version is an all-ages version of fortissimo EXS, and a new OP was shown as a PV for this version. According to La'cryma, you would get a set of 81 cards for their new NEXT/ZERO card game they have been promoting, an artbook, titled [Ein Schlachtfeld], containing fanart for the La'cryma Quest competition, and an additional game disk. These items were bundled with the game. A direct sequel, titled Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo, was developed by both La'cryma and 5pb. Kadenz fermata was set to be released in December 11, 2014 for the Playstation Vita. The limited edition included a soundtrack CD and an 11-cm metallic paper knife. The pre-order bonus was a costume code for the game to allow some characters in the game to wear different costumes from the science adventure series (Chaos;Head Noah, Steins;Gate, Robotics;Notes, Chaos;Child). On April 23, 2015, La'cryma tweeted on their Twitter account that fortissimo EXS//Akkord:nachsten Phase was getting a re-release as a Popular Edition and Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo was getting its long awaited 15+ PC release. These releases were to celebrate La'cryma's 10th Anniversary. The release date for the fortissimo EXS Popular Edition was stated to be released on June 26, 2015, as well as the PC Edition of Kadenz fermata on February 26, 2016. Kadenz PC's limited edition will include a 100-page 18+ artbook for fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier and Akkord:nachsten Phase titled [Betrachten der Kirschblüten], a vocal soundtrack CD containing all OP/ED/IS used in fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier and Akkord:nachsten Phase, a drama CD, and a card with a serial code to add in additional scenarios and CGs that were not in the PSV version. In addition to all those bonuses, La'cryma will also be bundling a card with a serial code to download La'cryma's other game "Sora wo Tobu, 3tsu no Houhou" as part of their campaign. tl;dr Version: Timeline of fortissimo//Akkord: September 2010 - Akkord:Bsusvier: Disaster of a release. Incomplete story that leaves the readers on a massive cliffhanger and no voices whatsoever. The only good thing about this release was the ero artbook, but even that was in grey-scale, which was a disappointment. March 2011 - EXA//Akkord:Bsusvier: Fully completed story. Every character, including the protagonists, were voiced and new CGs were added. A patch was released around one week after EXA's release date to add in an epilogue to the story. June 2012 - EXS//Akkord:nächsten Phase: Full release with all three routes (Sakura (aka EXA's route), Momiji, and Sayuki) with three new characters. Two of them only appear in one route. Ein Re-Encounter, the epilogue scene that was previously released as a patch for EXA, was fully incorporated into EXS as an unlockable scene if you fully completed the game and got every single scene, CG, BGM, and glossary. December 2013 - FA//Akkord:nächsten Phase: Definitive 15+ rerelease of EXS that removes all the H-scenes from EXS, as well as censored some of the non-H CGs with nudity in them. December 2014 - Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo: The official sequel to EXS/FA released for the PSV console. June 2015 - EXS//Akkord:nächsten Phase: Re-release of EXS at a discount price as part of La'cryma's 10th Anniversary. February 2016 - Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo PC Edition: Kadenz fermata ported to PC as part of La'cryma's 10th Anniversary. The limited edition is bundled with a patch to include new scenes and CGs in the game.

Reiji is a typical student on the remote southwest island of Tsukuyomi-jima. However, due to an unexpected event where his life was in danger, he awakened as the 13th magical summoner. After summoning the spirit and magical super-weapon Sakura, she gifts him with the special ability "Da Capo", which allows him to summon anyone who he met in the past 24 hours or reverts items back to its previous state (up to 24 hours ago).

Kadenz fermata//Akkord:fortissimo Description
It is not the end (fermata) to this story of battles. In order to bring upon “justice”, a special force under the direct command of an organization was formed across the border. Its name was the “Seventh Chord”. Having excelled in manipulating magic (rune) in combat using her life force and living in secret from society, Freya was the only girl who has shown excellent results as a knight. Freya was summoned to the island of eternal summer, where she was born and raised, by Julius, Seventh Chord's commander and her elder brother who she reunited with after being separated for a long time, for her first mission. And that mission, was said to have never been accomplished in history; it was to “defeat a mythical god”. Although it was handed down as a legend before, the "God" that was subdued was revived in this present day and age once again. After analyzing the "abilities" of these mythical gods, the organization created the “strategic creation technology weapon” to fight against them. This ultimate scientific weapon, known as “Miracle”, was handed down to Freya, to challenge these mythical existences to a fight. The enemies have transcended human intelligence, and their immortal existence has the ability to recreate the "powers" of a mythical god. The seven “Mahoutsukai”. The seven people who gathered in the name of justice. The "Kisekitsukai" of the “Seventh Chord”. Ultimate Science (justice) vs. Mythical Magic (another justice) A fight that no one had expected. Before long, the truth will begin to lead one to a sad fate. Mission Rank: SSS-Class. The seven knights were gathered to cut open the impossible fate, and set foot into the unexplored stage of humanity that will slowly become a holy war. (Translated from Main Website)

Nevermind, the append patch is finally out!!!

YoxalLoyal | Mar 24, 2016 12:12 PM
Well, we got yet another update patch today. Why do I have a feeling the append patch isn't coming out this week?

YoxalLoyal | Mar 21, 2016 6:30 PM
Congrats Rizor. Good timing too since the append patch is coming out this week. :D That cover art sure was eyecandy for both Momiji and Sayuki fans.

Rizor | Mar 21, 2016 4:53 PM
Just got the game. I'm happy with the songs in the 10th anniversary OST and honestly the Odin CGs hyped me up a bit in the art book. Of course the cover art was great.

YoxalLoyal | Mar 18, 2016 7:19 AM
According to Kamiya's tweet, the append patch is scheduled to be released some time next week. Good timing too cuz I'm done my midterms this week.

YoxalLoyal | Mar 16, 2016 5:55 PM
@Rizor - Agreed. At least the Kadenz artbook was kind enough to provide us the art for the pre-order wallscroll art. I was hoping for the fortissimo artbook to have all the store pre-order bonus art considering the artbook was supposed to be 18+ outside of the EXS CGs.

Yeah, Amiami always gets the lower tier bonuses. Example would be the upcoming Dies irae game. The drama CD is more on the male side, than the female side which I'm sure everyone wants. At least now allows international shipping for some games, though I'm not sure if visual novels or eroge count.

Rizor | Mar 16, 2016 4:27 PM

I'm hoping the next game gives us what we both want... An artbook with newly featured drawn art. Also it's too bad I missed out on the B2 wall scroll Preorder bonuses. I hope AmiAmi gets them next time.
