Happy Weekend Everyone!

If you were just at our industry panel earlier today at Anime Expo, you might've already seen the news but just in case we'd like to fill everyone in on some updates.

For starters, work on the prequel visual novel, NEKOPARA Extra ~The Kittens' First Promise~ is nearly complete. Currently there is still a bit of minor translation that needs to be done as well QA testing. NEKO WORKs has generously given us a ton of assets to show off to everyone as well.

First off, here's the main visual for the game!

 NEKOPARA Extra is a prequel to the NEKOPARA series and revolves around Chocola and Vanilla when they are first brought to the Minaduki household. There are definitely some interesting things to note which gets referenced in the game series such as Coconut and her growth spurt that has her overtake Azuki's height in short time.

Next up, here's some character sheets that also shows some of the age progressions of the various catgirls.

Chocola, Vanilla, Coconut
Chocola, Vanilla, Coconut
Cinnamon, Maple, Azuki and everyone's favorite little sister, Shigure!

 Aren't they all adorable? Next we also have some event CGs to show off as well which show the interactions between each of the catgirls with each other and Kashou as well.

 There are definitely some interesting surprises in NEKOPARA Extra from what can be seen in the interaction with Kashou, Chocola and Vanilla, Coconut and Azuki, Cinnamon and Maple and of course Kashou and Shigure. It's fun to think about these events being mentioned in the later games and to see it all there in the prequel.

Next up, we have information on the NEKOPARA Extra OVA. This was the last stretch goal in the campaign and we've been informed that animation work has mostly been completed. As always, NEKO WORKs has generously shared some behind the scenes assets for everyone to enjoy.

First up, we have the main visual for the OVA!

 As always, the animation team has most certainly captured the cute looks of each of these wonderful characters. Next up, we'll show off some character images and roughs of each character including different age progressions for each cat girl.

 Phew, that was a lot of stuff to show everyone! Both the NEKOPARA Extra game and OVA will be available on July 27, 2018 to backers and on Steam as well. Just a refresher but all backers at the $15 tier and above will receive Steam keys for both the NEKOPARA Extra game and OVA. This is but a small token of NEKO WORKs's appreciation of all their fans around the world and they hope that everyone will enjoy this new story in the NEKOPARA universe.

That's it for this update. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend! '-')/

      First of all I want to thank all of us backers who made this possible in the first place by reaching the stretch goals. Secondly I want to thank the staff who has done such a great work behind the scenes to make this happen. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been really looking forward to the mini OVA & VN ever since the stretch goal was reached.

      The cuteness is overwhelming. Seeing Coconut and Azuki together looks even better than I could have imagined and all other catgirls are also looking really cute. I can hardly wait for this!

      @Zirk This is a OVA / VN like NekoPara Vol 0 so there will be no R18 content.
      @Carl It's just cute catgirls doing cute things, if you want R18 wait for NekoPara Vol. 4 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
      Man I'm so hyped after seeing this post and knowing it comes out end of this month. Time to replay it for hours until NekoPara Vol.4 comes out. (´・ω・`)

      @GrandAdmiralThrawn This OVA is supposed to be short, like its VN, so if they put it on BD, what will they do with all of that space left over on the disc? It's pretty wasteful to just leave it blank. It's too bad they couldn't do this before the main OVA's release; like I said before, they could have fit the mini-OVA on the same disc and still had plenty of space left. Well, who knows? Maybe they could eventually find something else to combine it with.

      @Kamil Tworkiewicz
      What communication have you received, and what have you done, aside from emailing them? Did you ever give them the information they needed to send the package, etc.? I'm just looking back at the messages you posted in the main comments, and I see you were wondering if there was supposed to be tracking. I can confirm they *did* have tracking. It went via EMS, so the information is reasonably detailed.

      Try this: Go to https://nekopara-anime-ova.backerkit.com and enter your KS-registered email. You should receive an email with a link to log in. Once there, you should see a status thing across the top. For me, there are three items that say, "We got your responses", "Project magic is happening", and "Project is shipping". There is also a button "View Confirmation". Click it to go to the order confirmation page. There should be a link to Japan Post tracking, which will tell you what happened to the package. You can also enter the tracking number into your country's postal service tracking, which will give a different perspective on it.

      Well, this is all assuming the package went out in the first place. But maybe you can find out something about what's wrong.

      Is it wrong for me to say that I want an R-18 patch for the Nekopara Extra?

    10. GrandAdmiralThrawn 7 days ago

      Finally, the chibi Nekos are about to arrive! Hah, I've been waiting for this! Heh, only Azuki seems to look the same no matter her age. ;)

      I do agree with some of the people here though; A release of the VN (and especially the OVA) outside of Steam would be more than welcome!

      Just give me a file or a BD to purchase on top of my pledge, and I'm 100% happy. ;)

      PS.: Coconut & Azuki is truly golden!

      I concur with Shachihoko, an alternative store to Steam, like Amazon would be fantastic; especially considering that a BD release for the Extra OVA is unlikely for some time. I kinda wish it was a add-on... or something.

      Will there be a non-Steam option for the Extra game/OVA? My (limited) experience with Steam-delivered video has been really bad, so if Steam is the only way to see the Extra OVA, I'm probably never going to get a chance to watch it. As for the game, it'll just be more convenient if I can get (and play) that outside of Steam.

      Thanks for the hard work Sekaiproject and Neko Works!
      I'll suffer from cuteness overload soon...

      thank you very much "neko work's" i love it.

    17. Connor on

      I tried to find out if any info had been released on this just a couple of days ago. I'm glad we're getting some news. And July 27th is WAY sooner than I expected!
      (On some of the pictures) Well, if that's happening all the time, it's no wonder Kashou was baking somewhere else in Vol.0.
      Oh my goodness, Little Coconut with Big Sister Azuki is so adorable! This alone was worth my $300 pledge!

      All hail Neko master race! Thanks NEKO WORKS!

      I really hope that there will be a physical version of the game and OVA. I don't have a Steam account, nor do I want one.

      It's already almost here? 2018 is proving to be an all around great year.

    26. Joao Oliveira on

      I actually didn't think that the Extra OVA and Game would be destined to the >=15$ backers as well! I was planning on purchasing it regardless! XD
