Chaos;Child, Mystereet F, and Psycho Pass on the way.


5pb. announced three new Xbox One adventure games during a Niconico presentation this morning.

First, the developer’s previously announced Chaos;Child, whose platform was yet to be announced, will launch for Xbox One sometime in 2014.

Next up is Mystereet F: The Detectives’ Curtain Call, which includes Abel Software’s original Mystereet and a completely new version of the still incomplete Mystereet 2 re-developed for Xbox One.

And finally, 5pb. are also developing an Xbox One game based on the Psycho-Pass anime. It will have an original story drawn up by Nitroplus, and it will support both Kinect and Smartglass interaction.

Watch a trailer for Chaos;Child below.

    So, they’re not exclusive? Alright cool.
    That works of all of us.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I dunno. They’re not announced for any other platform yet, so as far as we know for now, they’re only on Xbox One.

      • Franggio Hogland

        Its more a waiting game. I’m waiting for handheld(includes iOS/android) version :)

  • Ah 5pb its only a matter of time before these titles are ported to another platform.

    just look what happen to steins;gate

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    Seriously, 5pb.

  • Franggio Hogland


    No need to beg. 5pb always port their games sooner than later.
    With them its just a matter of time.
    If it isn’t crap I’ll pick it when it hits the handhelds.

  • 罪罰

    Port begging to the company that ports their games to every platform, shameful, really shameful.

  • Impressionnant

    Wait, is Chaos;Child X1 exclusive, or will it be on PC, too? If it’s exclusive, I can see it (the X1) doing pretty well in Japan. Well, at least better than the 360.

    EDIT: Just read Sal’s comment. I’m really hoping it is X1 exclusive. Just to see the butthurt.

    • The Ash

      ” If it’s exclusive, I can see it (the X1) doing pretty well in Japan.”
      Yeah right. What a whole list of early exclusive jrpgs couldn’t do for 360 would be done by a handful of exclusives (which, judging by history, will eventually be ported anyway).

    • Unretributed

      I also just want to see all the butthurt as well.

      • Budgiecat

        Go to the rainbow room

    • bloodiOS

      Uh… butthurt on some visual novels that will probably never see light in the Western shore? I know you crave such a sight very badly but keep it in check and have some common sense *LOL*

    • Luna Kazemaru

      yeaah everyone is clearly going to get upset over a visual novel that will more then likely never leave Japan trying way to hard there.

      • DarthNemesis

        Right, no one cares for this just like all the other visual novel games.Only one who will be butt hurt are the devs when it flops.

    • desponent

      You can see it? tell me more.

  • Nitraion

    Your avatar + your comment+this article= epic timing

    • Luna Kazemaru

      yeah i love how this post happen and there is no one asking for a port

      • Bobby Jennings

        He saw the future.

  • Ksatmata

    let’s see how long will xo last until they abandon it

    • Shippoyasha

      Say what people will about the Japanese support for Xbox’s, but the game support has been pretty steady on the 360 even if it had a permanent status as niche machine. I guess history could simply repeat. Shame about the Galgun censorship debacle which would likely push fanservicey games away from it unless MS changed their tune.

      I feel they need to drop the price of XBone though. Like they at least did with 360 there.

      • desponent

        What “game”? SHMUP?

  • Renaldi Saputra

    much VN

  • AdamBoy64

    Cool. Always happy to see more differentiation between PS4 and X1.

    I wonder how the Smartglass connectivity will go.
    That would be interesting to see.

  • bloodiOS

    Good, good~~ Gotta pack some good heat (and more) prior to its launch in Japan or it isn’t going to last.

  • Bob Obb

    I would be upset if home console VNs were appealing AT ALL. I can kinda see the appeal of handheld ports but otherwise PC is where it’s at

  • Wolf Star

    Will Japaense games sell on Xbone?? In US, I see mostly Shooters players. Still the games sounds good to play but idk how the game will hang on until it becomes to Ps4 with extra content.

  • Kuro-Law

    Too bad no x1 fan will buy them

  • Warboss Aohd

    your tears are delicious.

    • bloodiOS

      Relax, relax. Trying too hard there xD

      • Warboss Aohd

        oh i’m calm, i just find it funny when people argue over consoles. this is a smart move on Microsoft’s part though.

        • bloodiOS

          Whether or not it is a smart choice is debatable. Really, these are just visual novels, their presence honestly aren’t all that significant to talk about. If it was some big JRPG then maybe…

          • Warboss Aohd


            i hope they do, would give me a reason to get the console (though i’m gonna get it eventually.)

  • PrinceHeir

    Ehh i’ll wait for the eventual PS3/PS4/PC version with improvements and new content just like what they did before.

    Glad Chaos;Child is still confirmed to be in development!

    And Psycho-Pass VN/ADV game O___O

    And Originally story? I wonder if it will star the new lead Psycho Pass or a completely new characters in the world of it?

  • DarthBrian

    Well, hopefully these sell well in Japan since they won’t come out for Xbox One anywhere else. :p

    • Khrno

      They will sell better when they get ported to Vita, PS4 and PC.

      • desponent

        And they will, I think Japanese VN gamers are aware of this too.

  • TheBlackRabbit

    well i bought steins;gate for pc, so i will wait….an completely forgot that these exist….

  • Ksatmata

    well, if psycho-pass game is using kinect to scan our psycho-pass
    and our Crime Coefficient is high, we will get shot from start and just go to jail? that would be great

  • ChaoticP

    It’s not so important it remains exclusive(not saying it won’t), but it shows their continuing support for the platform and gives buyers more confidence. Personally I’m more interested in the game using Kinect interaction, if it goes well could be something that gives the Xbox One a slight edge over the competition.

    • DarthNemesis

      An edge at what? lol

      • ChaoticP

        Maybe I’d actually take your question seriously if you didn’t attach lol at the end as if you’re trolling.

    • desponent

      Kinect, what’s that?

    • Budgiecat

      XBox One isn’t going to even be sold with Kinect in Japan so it’ll be a separate buy

  • Sevyne

    MS is going to have to do a lot better than this if they want Xbox One to sell at all in Japan. I’m sure we’ll see more in the coming months, but this wasn’t a very impressive start. Hell, they all kind of have to do better. None of the consoles are worth a damn to Japan right now.

    Not to stir the pot at all, but on the nico nico stream most of the viewer were very unimpressed. A lot of comments were laughing and saying they’re sticking with their 3ds, vita, or getting a ps4/Wii U. Again, not stirring the pot; Just stating the facts.

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      To be fair, what the hell did they expect 5pb to do? It’s not like Microsoft Japan announced any of this, it was specifically 5pb. Not that I disagree in them doing more (Xbox Japan), just saying that’s pretty unreasonable.

      • Sevyne

        Yeah I guess they did go into that stream with unreasonable expectations. I do agree with that.

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    3 5pb games? Alright, you’ve at least got my attention MS. Though are they going to be left in Japan like before =/ ?

  • Budgiecat

    Nice to see despite the jump into the 8th gen, this genre has remained stagnant as ever…

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      Curious Budgie, what would you do to evolve the Visual Novel genre? Would you go more Ace Attorney? Danganronpa style perhaps?

      • 罪罰

        Add Hellen Page and waste billions of dollars.. wait a second…

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          Oi, get her name right, Ellen <3 And haha honestly your quip does have a point. Upping the production does not change the game play much. Though I'm not entirely sure I liked all the real time/action components of Danganronpa for example. I guess I'm just a fan of how AA did it, as well as Virtues Last Reward, though then it's just a puzzle game with Visual Novel elements in the latter. I dunno, I think there can be a way to do it without getting too hardcore or abusing QTEs.

      • Budgiecat

        too much to get into, but more use of Live2D for starts and yes more interaction

  • Arcloxs

    Well.. i guess they can say xbox has games for the japanese. Will it make them relevent in Japan? doubtful

  • desponent

    XB1 is saved. SAVED.

  • Akari Akaza

    Is coming to PS3 or 4 or Vita you watch…^_^

  • 永次

    5pb? These games will be available in PS3, PS4, PSP, PSVITA, PC, PS2, Xbox360, DreamCast, Nintendo 64 and Super Famicon. Who thinks these games will be exclusive for Xbox One is a dreamer.

    • bloodiOS

      They’re gonna port these to iOS and Android first ;)

  • Eclipse

    Eh, considering how often 5pb. port their games, I’m definitely going to wait for the eventual enhanced port of Chaos;Child.
