The latest issue of Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine reported on Thursday that developer El Dia is working on EVE Burst Error R, a "refined" version of C's Ware and Hiroyuki Kanno's original EVE Burst Error PC-98 game, with new character designs by the game's original character designer Nao Tajima. The game is slated for 2016 on the PC and PlayStation Vita. The website is currently hosting a thumbnailed image showing the game's visual.

Famitsu also posted screenshots from the game on Thursday.

Tajima will draw new event CGs and character portraits for the remake, based on the original portraits with remastered coloring.

EVE Burst Error features two heroes: Marina, a highly capable national intelligence agent, and Kojiroh, a down-on-his-luck detective. Players can switch between perspectives from the two detectives as they work on their respective cases. Players can also use this mechanic to gain different perspectives on the same case.

C's Ware released the original game on the PC-98 platform in 1995. The developer then released subsequent versions with minor revisions on the Sega Saturn and the PlayStation 2, as well as two PC versions. MangaGamer released the PC version in English in 2012.

The game's original creator Hiroyuki Kanno passed away in 2011, just months after the game's original composer Ryū Umemoto also passed away.

Sega is publishing a remake Kanno and Umemoto's Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shōjo YU-NO (YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world.) science-fiction visual novel. MAGES. and 5pb. are developing the game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, and it is slated for release on February 18.
