Nippon Ichi Software began streaming a promotional video for Iwaihime: Matsuri, its PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita port of DMMGames and Ryukishi07's Iwaihime PC horror game, on Thursday. The video shows visuals by character designer Kina Kazuharu and background designer mocha.

The game will ship in Japan on July 20. The port contains a new prologue that will center on protagonist Suzumu Susuhara, and will introduce the game's characters and key concepts.

DMM Games released the original game for the PC in January 2016.

The cast is as follows:

Makoto Furukawa as Suzumu Susuhara
Chinatsu Akasaki as Toe Kurokami
Mariko Honda as Tsubakiko Harumiya
Yuka Otsubo as Kanae Minobe
Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Lilia Nunokawa
Ryouko Tanaka as Mayu Hinagata
Yuuki Tai as Natsuya Atsuta

In the story, for generations the men of the Susuhara family have, upon reaching a certain age, left home and gone their own way, living alone with no one to depend on until they are acknowledged. The protagonist is a high school student who has left home and is comfortable at his new school. But there's a strange girl named Toe Kurokami. She carries what appears to be Japanese doll, and he's sure its hair grows and it whispers things. Meeting her might be his destiny.

Tomo Tanaka also serialized a manga adaptation of the game in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine. The manga launched in September 2015, and ended in September 2016. Square Enix published two compiled book volumes for the manga. Tanaka drew the manga, while Ryukishi07 wrote the manga's scripts. Kina Kazuhara was credited with the original character designs, and handled the editorial supervision.
