posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kadokawa Games announced in its "Kadokawa Games Media Briefing 2015 Autumn" press briefing on Tuesday that it is developing a new game titled √letter (pronounced "Root Letter") for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, slated for release in spring 2016. Kadokawa Games is also streaming the game's English-subtitled debut trailer.
Kadokawa describes the game:
The truth is endless sorrow.
The first title of the series “Kadokawa Game Mystery.” A collection of adventure games that explore human drama, featuring local Japanese culture and history.
√Letter is set in the Shimane prefecture, a land with a rich history and beautiful nature.
The player will engage an adventure to solve the mystery of Fumino Aya, a pen pal friend from high school who disappeared after leaving a mysterious letter. A letter delivered 15 years later…
The game will be the first game in Kadokawa's newly established Kadokawa Game Mystery line. The game will be set in Shimane Prefecture, and will be a "youth mystery adventure" game. Noriko Hidaka will voice the character Aya in the game.
LovePlus character designer Tarō Minoboshi is in charge of planning and character designs. Dario Fuji is handling the scenario, while Takashi Nitta is composing the music. The game project launched a new actress unit named "Mystery Actresses" for the game.
Minoboshi (formerly Mino☆Tarō) left Konami earlier this year in March, along with LovePlus producer Akari Uchida. He launched his first original manga series titled Seifuku Robin Son in Kodansha's new Shōnen Magazine Edge manga magazine on September 17.
