posted on by Rachel Mahoney
This week's issue of Kadokawa's Famitsu magazine revealed on Thursday that Visual Art's Key (Air, Clannad, Angel Beats) will release its 2011 visual novel game Rewrite for the PlayStation 3 in Japan on February 11. The romance adventure game will cost 6,100 yen (about US$51) before tax.
Famitsu notes that Key will be upgrading the game's resolution to an HD resolution of 1280x720, and the voices and background music will both be upgraded significantly.
Key released a PSP version of the game in April and a PS Vita version in August.
Rewrite takes place in Kazamatsuri, a fictional city where civilization and greenery co-exist. Within it, players assume the role of student Kotaro Tennoji and interact with his fellow classmates Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Akane Senri, Sizuru Nakatsu, and Lucia Konohana (voiced by Chiwa Saito, Saya Shinomiya, Eri Kitamura, Keiko Suzuki, and Risa Asaki, respectively).
Itaru Hinoue (Air, Kanon, Clannad) served 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 Yuto Tonokawa (Little Busters!) wrote the game's storyline scenarios. Jun Maeda (Air, Clannad, Angel Beats) was involved with Rewrite's musical compositions and quality control.
