London Detective Mysteria Game's Trailer Reveals December 18 Release
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
XSEED Games began streaming a trailer for its release of Karin Entertainment's London Detective Mysteria (Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown) romance adventure visual novel on Friday. The video reveals that the game will launch for PlayStation Vita on December 18.
The company announced in June that it would release the game for PS Vita and Windows PC in fall 2018. However, the company has not announced a release date for the PC version.
XSEED Games revealed at its Anime Expo panel in July that the Japanese staff of the game went to London to walk around, eat the food, and imagine the characters in the setting. The company added that the game's director believes that the English translation will be even more authentic: the game is written entirely in Victorian English, and it took a year of research to authenticate the accents.
XSEED Games describes the game:
Eschew the frivolities of 19th century London's high society and instead delve into the curiosities that lie hidden in London's darkest corners in London Detective Mysteria. Playing as the heiress of House Whiteley, players will name their own Lady Whiteley as they investigate mysteries of London and interact with personalities inspired by famous fictional characters including Detective Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and more. Take full control over the experience by adjusting text speed or even the individual speaking volumes of individual characters and their original Japanese voices. Players must choose their words carefully as they interact with other characters, as decisions made throughout the story will not only affect special rewards but will also shape whether Lady Whiteley finds love or something more sinister in the shadows of 19th century London.
Karin Entertainment released the original Eikoku Tantei Mysteria game for PlayStation Portable in March 2013. The company then released a PlayStation Vita version, Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown, in February 2016. The new version added sequel stories and more skills.
