PS Vita/PSP game videos introduce “God of Rock” Perry Junior

Famitsu began streaming a promotional video on Friday announcing Marvelous AQL’s PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Portable game Bakumatsu Rock: Ultra Soul.

In the episode’s story, Ryōma and the other go relax at a beautiful hot springs, but a murder case begins at their inn. The victim has the mysterious number “69” written on the back of their leg.

The promotional video plays clips from the game and first episode of the television anime, and also introduces two new cast members: Junichi Sawabe as self-proclaimed “God of Rock” Matthew Calbraith Perry Jr. and vistlip’s Yuh as J (John Manjirō), both of the United States Navy.

Famitsu also began streaming two 30-second commercials for the game:

The game will ship in Japan on September 25, and a limited number of first-run copies will include a drama CD titled “Gakuen Rock Cli! Max! Senkyo Battle” (Academy Rock Climax! Election Battle).

The original Bakumatsu Rock game shipped for the PlayStation Portable in February. The game’s anime adaptation premiered last week. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

Exclusive Bakumatsu Rock goods to be presented to customers of Autumn Leaf

When fighting for justice and freedom in an alternate universe in which the government uses music to brainwash its citizens, your average rock star superhero may get a little hungry. It is for the purpose of satisfying both your soul and your stomach that the Akihabara based café Autumn Leaf is teaming up with Bakumatsu Rock for the sake of turning their shop into the center of all that is good in the rock world.

The menu for this collaborative event is quite the colorful one, consisting of five different drinks, each based off of a character from the series, being sold for 690 yen a piece (about US $6.75). In addition to this, Autumn Leaf will be serving up two different delicious dessert plates: the “White” parfait, and the “God Breath” french toast plate, both of which are priced at 1,169 yen (about US $11.43)

Patrons of the café will also be receiving one of two types of collaborative goods with each purchase. Customers that buy one of the five character drinks will be presented with one of five limited edition character pins. Those who decide to purchase one of the food items will be given an exclusive Bakumatsu Rock clear file.

The announcement of this collaboration also coincided with the unveiling of a brand new character addition to the Bakumatsu Rock franchise. Known simply as “Makoto Kamen,” this masked figure is the emissary of rock, fighting for and supporting all of those who have lost their way and lost sight of their true self. Nobody knows the true identity of this vigilante, but one thing is certain, he will be playing a big part in the next Bakumatsu Rock game, Bakumatsu Rock: Ultra Soul.

The cafe collaboration will be going from August 15 to August 31, during which time it will be operating between the hours of 11:00AM and 10:00PM. Bakumatsu Rock: Ultra Soul will be hitting shelves in Japan starting September 25.
