The game will ship for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on March 30, in both standard and limited editions. The standard edition on the PS4 costs 7,800 yen (about US$75), while the limited edition costs 9,800 yen (about US$94). The standard edition on the PS Vita will cost 6,800 yen (about US$65), while the limited edition costs 8,800 yen (about US$85).

In the original Chaos;Child visual novel's 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 "delusional science adventure" 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."

Chaos;Child is a sequel to 5pb.'s earlier "science-adventure" game Chaos;Head. Chaos;Head had already inspired a Chaos;Head Love Chu☆Chu! fan disc. 5pb. described the romantic comedy spinoff as "delusion exploding adventure" game.

Chaos;Child first debuted on the Xbox One in 2014. That first version allowed players to hear in-game phone calls via the controller, but the versions on other platforms changed this and other features. MAGES. and 5pb. Games shipped ports for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in Japan in June 2015 with a Z (18+) age rating. The game's PC port launched in Japan last April.

The anime adaptation of the original game premiered last month. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles as it airs in Japan, and Funimation is streaming an English dub.
