Key's Rewrite Visual Novel PSP Opening Movie Streamed
posted on by Karen Ressler
Game news website Famitsu posted the opening movie on Tuesday for the PlayStation Portable version of the visual novel Rewrite from Visual Art's/Key (CLANNAD, Little Busters!). The video changes only a few scenes from the opening movie of the PC version, which shipped in 2011. The PSP version is slated for release in Japan this Thursday.
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.
Visual Art's/Key President Takahiro Baba stated with regard to Rewrite last March that, "If they call me, I'd be more than happy to do the anime."
