posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Game developer Prototype began steaming the opening movie on Sunday for the PlayStation Vita version of the Key and Visual Art's game Rewrite Harvest festa. The game will launch in Japan on May 18. The package edition retails for 5,200 yen (about US$46), and the download edition retails for 4,600 yen (about US$40).
The original 2011 Rewrite visual novel takes place in Kazamatsuri, a fictional city where civilization and greenery co-exist. Within it, players assume the role of student Kotaro Tennoji and interact with his fellow classmates Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Akane Senri, Shizuru Nakatsu, and Lucia Konohana.
Itaru Hinoue (AIR, Kanon, CLANNAD), who recently left Visual Art's, served as the game's project creator and main illustrator. Romeo Tanaka, Ryukishi07 (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Umineko no Naku Koro ni) and Yuto Tonokawa (Little Busters!) wrote the game's storyline scenarios. Jun Maeda (AIR, CLANNAD, Angel Beats) was involved with the musical compositions and quality control. The original game was also ported to the PSP and PS Vita systems in 2014, followed by a PS3 version in February 2015.
Visual Art's will release the game in the West.
The original game inspired a television anime series that premiered on July 2 that features the same voice cast as the game. The anime portrays a "sixth" route left untold in the game, which tells the story of "that girl." Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Crunchyroll is also streaming the anime's second season, which premiered on January 14.
