Horror adventure game due out on August 7 in Japan.


Nippon Ichi Software’s Hayarigami series is returning with a new title on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, this week’s Dengeki PlayStation reveals.

Due out on August 7 for 6,000-something yen at retail and 5,000-something yen via download (hooray for censored sources!), the game features Ryoji Yanase in the producer’s seat, and Takasu Kazuya in the director’s. Cute Ron is handling the scenario, and character design is being done by Yuuki Mimura.

Our source has censored information on the game’s full title, but it is not a numbered title. The reason for this, according to the magazine, is because the game introduces completely new characters.

The game’s scenario features multiple branches from the main root, and the Reasoning System will have added elements.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    So for those who played the past titles in Hayarigami series, what its about I’m curious?

    • Luiis Feliipe

      me too, first time i hear about this game :/ and that I’m a fan of NIS :(

    • Kurisu Makise

      Likewise but it seems like a Phoenix Wright style approach except for Horror if I’m understanding the info presented. I’m intrigued either way.

        So basically a mix of Phoenix Wright and Umineko?

        • Fei

          Don’t know about Phoenix Wright but Umineko yes, very much. You as member of Police Department Paranormal investigation section have to investigate criminal cases with weird things going on, making decisions in favor of mysticism or scientific approach and in the end figure out who is who by selecting appropriate relations between all characters on the black board. Only big difference from Umineko is where are no anime fan service or cheerful scenes, all people are adults and game is very dark and scary.

          • artemisthemp

            Their was Fan service in Umineko?

            • Fei

              By anime fan service I mean not direct meaning of pantsu and stuff, but general anime concept of cute young girls as main attraction point. There is no such thing in Hayarigami at all.

        • Kurisu Makise

          Based on what Fei said, yes, Phoenix Wright and Umineko is correct. Which actually sounds super awesome, I need this D=!

    By the looks of the older games

    This looks like a combination of 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de(uses live action scenes) mixed with detective flavor Jake Hunter or Silver Case(judging by the dark 90s art style)

    I hope it’s only pure anime cutscenes, at least it gives a small chance of being localize(if ever)

    Want more detective like games!!

    This is like a dream come true. First Mato Kurenai Yuugekitai and now this. Even painting technique is the same :) The only let down is traditional lack of voice overs, ugh.
