Hello Everyone,

With the release of New Minna no Golf yesterday, I have decided that we should also start a new. To help with the community and grow the support for New Everybody’s Golf, this site along with it’s database has been moved to a new location. At the moment there is not much, I haven’t had much time to theme it and set up for anything other than having a stream for it and a new community discord channel.

Since the game is now unified with the brand Everybody’s Golf…And also that there is no real need for me to be updating everyone with information about the series now that they have good media coverage and English support… our new community website for the series will now be at Everybodys.Golf!

Please support the new community there as we explore the new game and come up with information to share and guide others through this series. It would be good to see the new players and old veterans band together and make this a good new place to get your Everybody’s Golf fix.

Thanks for supporting the Mingol.Community here at I will keep this site around, likely disable a lot of user interaction but since the database here is duplicated over there, all accounts will work there as well and once we have a proper system set up there it should be easy to communicate with other golfers.

Also we are looking for co-hosts or streamers for the new community channel. If you have the time and want to stream or talk about golf, feel free to join us on this adventure.

New Minna no Golf Release Date August 31st 2017

So a trailer for New Minna no Golf was uploaded today announcing the date of release to be on August 31st 2017. These articles have been full of fluff lately so I will only be translating the useful information in this post. Here is the new trailer video included with the official post:

So the game comes in multiple delivery methods. Physical, Digital and a Course Special Digital Pack. You could say it’s some kind of collectors edition but it really isn’t. Let us break it down so we know what we are getting on release date.

Packages Available for Purchase

Other than the Physical version coming with a proper box for the game, normal version and the digital version costs exactly the same price. However if you pre-order any version of these two you will receive the Rabbit Character Costume and the 20th Anniversary Memorial Course No.1.
Rabbit CostumeCat Costume

The Cat Costume however is only included in the Course Special Digital Edition of the game. So inside the special pack you will receive on top of the normal game, the 20th Anniversary Memorial Course No.1 (You get this also for just pre-ordering the game.) and 20th Anniversary Memorial Course No.2., A Seasonal pass for 3 Add-on Courses and a Premium Skin for your Golf Cart.

So to conclude, Course Special Digital Edition you don’t need to pre-order because it looks to be still available after release.  You will gain an additional 5 courses overall which people will still be able to purchase after the game is released, The only things that remain unique appears to just be the Golf Cart and the Cat Costume. All players who want to play this online will also need a PS Plus Subscription on the PS4.

Do not Pre-order this game if you are waiting for the World Server Announcement as New Minna no Golf is supposed to be a World Wide International Version or Server Supported.

Pre-order Period

  • 2017 April 17th to 2017 August 30th.


  • 6,372 Japanese Yen Normal/Digital Copy.
  • 9,936 Japanese Yen Course Special Digital Edition.

PlayStation Store Pre-order Bonuses

September 14, 2016 · Type: News Event · Shihiko

So the PlayStation Press Event happened yesterday, and there was yet another New Minna no Golf Trailer that announces the delay until Japan Summer 2017.

Next year will be the 20th Anniversary of Minna no Golf series. Once again things don’t look good… Tokyo Game Show 2017 this weekend, I will be going to check out the demo on both days.

In other news, Minna no Tennis which was made on PS2 will be coming to PS4. That is still a good game, at this rate I wouldn’t be surprised if Minna no Tennis ends up inside the Minna no Golf world, with all the fishing and cart driving going down and delays…

The developers need to hold back on the feature creeping and release something and communicate with their player base to see where to move their series so that it is a longer lasting game. Let’s hope we get more than 3 extra courses after release.

Hello Everyone,

It’s been awhile since I logged into my own site, I guess things haven’t been that interesting for me to feel the need to make any posts about the New Minna no Golf. Well seems like lately there are some articles being written and they don’t seem to be planning to change the release date of being within this year… So maybe we will be seeing the New Minna no Golf this year on the PS4.

With news of a possible PS4 Neo, I feel that the game would likely run smoother on PS4 neo and with a possible integration of the PlayStation VR… since we know that is what happens to all Mingol games in the past few titles.

That said, Keith [Kdoll] has recently contacted me here and emailed me a copy of the latest article issue on Famitsu for the New Minna no Golf game.

Translation June 2016 Famitsu Article

I have translated it for those those who are interested in what the article contained though I didn’t bother translating the title text because the information explains the titles anyway, but I have also seen that PlayStation’s official Mingol website has been updated [with horrible coding for the parallax effect for some reason. Sony needs to hire better programmers.] So those articles I will probably be looking over again and posting a rough translation over the next few days or couple of weeks depending on my work schedule.

Hello Everyone,

Well this year will be interesting… Here right now a few days before public entry into Tokyo Game show 2015. We have received a new trailer, but things aren’t looking so Mingol as we are used to it seems.

Who likes the song used in the trailer? 😛

I don’t know if they are mocking fans with that song… It doesn’t look like there will be anything actually playable at TGS this year. Also anyone else think the models look like the Microsoft Avatars?

Set to be released in 2016, game will feature creatable avatars and an open world. This is the same thing as what they mentioned last year before TGS… Still probably no prototype or game play trailer available to show us at TGS this year. With the daily Clap Hanz recruitment continuing on Twitter, it is hard to tell what the real story behind the up coming title is currently.

Hello Everyone,

Looks like they have announced pre-TGS that there is a New Mingol Project underway. More details will come when TGS begins, but the game probably will be something that comes around late next year. Knowing Claphanz they are pretty slow…

So I haven’t been loading up the PlayStation 3… Any how this has come up which I didn’t see coming, was expecting either a new course by now. I’m just going to translate what it says on the fly instead of writing my own version because this seems a little more delicate than normal announcements.

[Translated as follows…]

Thank you for your support and for always playing Minna no Golf series. We apologize to everyone who has purchased the Lv.5 Gear Set. From September 26th, only to customers who purchased Lv.5 gear, the Lv.6 gear that should appear during October has begun to show up in game. You will not be able to use this at the moment, it is a deficiency on the display and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

[End of Translation…]

Well then, No interest in that order… Level 6 Gear now? After people started leaving when Level 5 Gear showed up… I am not too sure about their business plan anymore. No new courses?

A new PlayStation Vita System Update 2.61 is out and addresses the frame rate and freezing issues with Minna no Golf 6 or the regional localised counterparts. There was also a Bug Fix patch… Update 1.09.

July 20, 2013 · Type: Everybody's Golf Event, Hotshots Golf Event, News Event · Shihiko

Looks like the wait is over for all those wanting to play Everybody’s Hot Shots Golf World Invitational on the PlayStation 3… Other than being tipped off by Envisager over the last couple of days, we all knew it was going to release some time in these couple of months… Just now PlayStation Blogs of Europe and US have both posted and confirmed a release date which is expected early next week.

I’ll just leave the links here and you guys can go read about it there… I would like to see how the “Regular Updates” DLC will play out in the coming months. 😛

Let’s do a little FAQ for the game that doesn’t seem to be addressed on the blogs…

  • Will the PSVita Save transfer over to PS3?
  • Can I Cross-Play Game Rooms with my PSVita Friends?
  • Will my DLC Purchases from the PSVita work on the PS3?
  • Do I need an Online Pass?
    Yes, but on PS3 one account allows all accounts access Online.
  • Is there a box version?
  • Is there a discount for owning the PSVita version?
    No. It’s cheap anyway… 😉

While playing the game there are some holes that Freeze the console and game. This bug has been verified and the developers are working to have this fixed as soon as possible.

Guess that rules out trying to enjoy Tornado Cup too much… Imagine you rolled it in Slot Mode then get frozen because you happen to be on the hole it freezes on.
