Fans of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are familiar with the episode “The Day of Sagittarius” that deals with the SOS Brigade playing a space battle computer game. Now, courtesy of Kadokawa Shoten Publishing, you too can have a copy of “The Day of Sagittarius III” for your iPhone. Kadokawa Shoten is also in charge of publishing Noizi Ito’s Haruhi novels in Japan. TODS3, as it is listed in the App Store, is a graphically simplistic game with five ship squadrons versus an enemy fleet. Currently, it is selling for $1.99, and the game description opens with a very familiar phrase for Haruhi fans: “First off, I’m not interested in ordinary people. But if any of you were aliens, time-travelers or espers, please come see me. That is all.”
