The Japanese game developer Visual Art's posted the opening to Rewrite, the upcoming visual novel from the brand studio Key (CLANNAD, Little Busters!), on its official YouTube channel last week. The official website for Rewrite currently hosts a demo download while the final retail version of the game is set for release June 24.
The game takes place in Kazamatsuri, a fictional city where civilization and greenery co-exist. Within it, players assume the role of student Kotarō Tennōji and interact with his fellow classmates Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Akane Senri, Sizuru Nakatsu, and Lucia Konohana (voiced by Chiwa Saitō, Saya Shinomiya, Eri Kitamura, Keiko Suzuki, Risa Asaki respectively).
Production staff includes many notable names from popular visual novels of the last decade. Itaru Hinoue (AIR, Kanon, CLANNAD) is working as the game's project creator and main illustrator. Romeo Tanaka (Cross Channel, Kana: Little Sister), Ryukishi07 (Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, Umineko no Naku Koro Ni) and Yūto Tonokawa (Little Busters) are all writing the game's storyline scenarios.
Update: Jun Maeda (AIR, CLANNAD, Angel Beats) is involved with Rewrite's musical compositions and QC.
