posted on by Egan Loo
5pb., the game and music brand of MAGES., announced on Monday that it is delaying its Xbox One game Chaos;Child by three weeks from November 27 to December 18. It cited "various circumstances" for the delay.
A demo, "Chaos;Child 404 not found," was released in the Xbox Store earlier this month. It allows players to go through the entire first chapter of the fourth science-adventure game from 5pb.
In the psycho-suspense story, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake hits Tokyo's Shibuya ward on November 6, 2009, a black fire spreads and causes mass panic on the day of the earthquake. The sudden disaster that becomes known as the "Shibuya Earthquake" kills 3,851 people and injures 30,927 more.
The game is set in a reconstructed Shibuya district in October 2015. A string of mysterious deaths occurs in Shibuya amidst the reconstruction. People begin to take notice as the strange events start on the same day that chaos broke out in Shibuya with a certain incident five years earlier. The events are called the "Return of the New Generation Madness."
Tatsuya Matsubara (5pb.) is producing the game. Mutsumi Sasaki is in charge of the main character designs with Yukihiro Matsuo as sub character designer and uniform designer. Choco designed the Di-Swords, and Takeshi Abo is composing the music. Eiji Umehara, Masashi Takimoto, and Tōru Yasumoto are writing the scenarios under the scenario chief supervisor Naotaka Hayashi. Kanji Wakabayashi is directing.
