The Death Come True Event Live Stream announced on Thursday that Too Kyo Games' "full motion video game" project Death Come True is slated to launch in Japan in June. The livestream also revealed that rock band Kami-sama, Boku wa Kizuite Shimatta are performing the game's theme song.
The game's previously announced cast includes:
- Kanata Hongō as main character Makoto Karaki
- Chiaki Kuriyama as Akane Sachimura, who wakes up in the same hotel room as Makoto
- Win Morisaki as Nozomu Kuji, a young and talented investigator
- Yuuki Kaji as the hotel concierge
- Chihiro Yamamoto as Nene Kurushima, a psychopath who just so happens to be staying at the hotel
- Jiro Sato as Kenichi Mino, a popular news anchor
The website also lists a character named "Unknown," a mysterious person who wields various weapons, and doggedly chases after Karaki.
The game will "tentatively" launch for iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and PC in 2020. Izanagi Games CEO and the game's producer Shinsuke Umeda stated the project is planned to release in multiple subtitle languages.
Kazutaka Kodaka is directing the project and writing the scenario for the "live-action movie game." Masafumi Takada is composing the music.
Izanagi Games describes the game:
Death Come True is the latest project from Kazutaka Kodaka, creator of the Danganronpa series. It combines movie and game elements, making it an “interactive movie” with a story that unfolds according to decisions made by the player which then can result in multiple different endings. Kanata Hongo takes the lead role as the main character and Chiaki Kuriyama acts the role of a female police investigator.
In the game's story, Makoto wakes up in a hotel with no memories. He has no idea who he is or why he is in the hotel. He sees news on the television and discovers that he is a suspect wanted for a case of serial murders. Makoto has a power that allows him to travel back in time when he dies. He sets out to uncover the truth.
