So playasia's email about this release was right all along. I would've been more surprised if it wasn't, considering a couple gals at twitter did say playasia has tendency to release info much earlier than everyone, artists themselves included.2012.01.11 Release
3rd Live DVD
NICO Touches the Walls TOUR 2011 PASSENGER ～We are Passionate Messenger～
KSBL-5963 ￥4,515(tax in)
Pre-order at: Playasia.com
Since 7 out of 10 dates off "HUMANIA" Tour was sold out (yay!), NICO immediately announced their decision to have additional performances. They titled it, "Ground of HUMANIA." ... rather it's NICO Touches the Walls Tour 2012 "HUMANIA" Additional Performances "Ground of HUMANIA."
Anyway, it's 5 additional dates in Nagoya, Osaka, Chiba and Naha. Ain't it nice ending the tour in Okinawa?
3/10 - Nagoya: Chukyo University Center for Culture & Arts Aurora Hall (capacity 2,291)
3/15 & 3/16 - Osaka: NHK Osaka Hall (capacity 1,417)
3/20 - Chiba: Makuhari Messe Hall (capacity up to 9,000)
3/25 - Naha: Naha Central Hall (capacity 360)
It seems like they will be performing to more audience in this tour. If not, then it's probably just more chances for die-hard NICO fans to go city-hopping and see the boys for the nth time. General sales is on February 4, 2012, however, for NICO Mobile Site members, lottery started today 11/26 at 18:00 and will last till 12/5 at 18:00. Note: smartphones are still not supported. It also turns out that the upcoming album, "HUMANIA," will include a code for the lottery that will start on 12/7 at 18:00 till 12/19 at 18:00. This was not posted on the official website, however, ro69
Also, it was announced that those who purchase "HUMANIA" album via Tsutaya can join the lottery to not only get tickets but also have a chance to be invited backstage at NICO's live at Chiba Makuhari Messe Hall on 3/20. Edit: More details on main website confirming Tsutaya promo. Those who make reservation via Tsutaya (*check for store participation) will receive an application post card to enter a lottery to see NICO at their Chiba live plus a backstage pass. Postcard must be postmarked by December 31, 2011. They mentioned additional info on the main website..
The limited edition of "HUMANIA" includes a bonus dvd. They've announced before that it's an acoustic live session, and the article

:Who's Akotacchi? THE BUNGY FTW! So glad they're pimping this out instead of Hologram, though that acoustic version of Hologram was pretty darn good. YAY for the DVD!!!!! So can't wait.
