The game was originally slated to ship on February 18.

Maaya Uchida as Kanna Hatano

Rie Kugimiya as Mio Shimazu
Yū Kobayashi as Eriko Takeda

Kaori Nazuka as Ayumi Arima

MAGES former president Chiyomaru Shikura is serving as executive producer, and former Cave producer Makoto Asada is producing the project. Ryō Nagi (Ar Tonelico, Steel Chronicle) is designing the characters, and the remake credits the original creator Hiroyuki Kanno (EVE Burst Error) for the scripts. Kanno passed away in 2011, just months after YU-NO and EVE Burst Error composer Ryū Umemoto also passed away.

The original, critically acclaimed 1996 game for the PC-98 computer platform inspired the four-part 1998-1999 adult anime YU-NO. 5pb. then released the game for the Sega Saturn in 1997 and for Windows PC in 2000.
