NIS America launched a new trailer for the upcoming murder mystery visual novel adventure from the mind of Suda51, The 25th Ward: The Silver Case, coming to North America and Europe in 2018.
The new trailer gives players a preview of the gameplay that is being seen for the first time on PlayStation 4 and PC. Incidentally, many of the assets had to be reworked for the new hardware due to the game originally being a mobile exclusive.
The 25th Ward: The Silver Case is set five years after the events of The Silver Case. In a room of the “Bayside Tower Land” apartment complex, a woman has been found murdered without a clue to the whereabouts of the killer.
Following a series of random events, told over multiple protagonists including the returning character Morishima Tokio, the pieces will fall into place.
The world created by Suda51 is a “Kill the Past” universe, where the world is at the edge of collapse inhabited by anti heroes and misfits. The 25th Ward: The Silver Case uses the same “Film Window” system introduced in The Silver Case, with new visuals, sounds, and controls.
