"Intracranial crash adventure" game due out on October 30.

Dramatical Murder Re:code

Dramatical Murder Re:code will launch for PS Vita in Japan on October 30, Nitroplus Chiral announced.

A First-Print Limited Edition will include a special-illustrated box, art book, and mini soundtrack for 8,800 yen. The standard edition will cost 6,500 yen and the download version 5,500 yen.

The game is based on the original 18+ rated Boys’ Love game launched for PC in 2012. That said, the PS Vita game is rated CERO C (ages 15 and up), so expect a few changes.

The Dramatical Murder anime is now streaming on Crunchyroll.

    Nice to see the Vita getting all these games in Japan

    • Budgiecat

      Not surprised. It’s the natural evolution from the PSP which is finally getting discontinued…

  • surakian

    I SUPPOSE I could live without watching Aoba’s sexual exploits…Especially the Clear route scenes.

    Now to pray that this is the ONE Nitroplus game that could ever have a hope of being localized by some company like NIS, Aksys, etc.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      hmmm, nitroplus title dude. I doubt NISA or Aksys can do it

      • surakian

        (let me dream ;~; I don’t like JAST concentrating on certain eroge games & the lack of console VN localizations)

        • new_tradition

          Don’t even get me started on JAST. They’ve been sitting on the Nitro catalog all these years, and the only recent thing they put out was Saya no Uta. I’m still waiting for Togainu no Chi (although truthfully I’m more interested in the vanilla remake now for the new content). Don’t even know when they last released a BL game >.>

          EDIT: Oh yeah, steins;gate was recent actually…

          • surakian

            And Steins;Gate, and there is little hope for the console versions ever coming out. Ugh. (edit: whoops! just saw your edit)

            The only reason I have any hope for any Nitro game (like Togainu no Chi or Lamento) is that they have their global store for their merchandise, Which really means nothing but it’s something ;c

            It’s a waste. DMMD is such a goldmine, especially if it was handled properly by a company that gave a damn. The huge explosion in popularity should have made something click in some executive’s head. The anime should certainly reinforce that this is a series with legs and can sell to an audience in the west.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Why not they’ve worked with localized before so it’s not like they have to stick to one person.

        • surakian

          Nitroplus has a license deal with JAST. I’m not sure how far that extends (i.e. if it covers console titles, only select Nitroplus games or all of them) and how long it was supposed to last, but considering how few Nitro games we’ve gotten over the years, JAST certainly isn’t rushing to crank them out.

          Who knows if any publisher like NIS, Aksys, XSEED, etc. is vying to get their hands on any of Nitro’s licenses, though.

          And even then, would they pick up a BL game? They’ve released weirder, lesser known titles, but there are a lot of unknowns that we don’t know about.

          (Of course, that doesn’t stop me from hoping and dreaming)

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Hmm that’s my worries less so if they could get anyone to pick up and more so would anyone want to pick it up. Though otome games have been taking off a bit and well bl games are made for women so maybe there’s a small chance.
            It’s pretty popular as well.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          Nitroplus will only localize PC VN, for console VN, I doubt much

  • Budgiecat

    no butt’s were ravaged in the making of this game…

    • TheBlackRabbit

      glad to hear mate….glad to here…………………………………………………………..;D

  • Mika Moreno

    Aw man, that means most of BL must’ve been taken out… I’d still love to play this though! (If it ever gets localized, but i doubt it.)

  • new_tradition

    In terms of the anime, the first episode seemed pretty faithful to the game, so I’m hoping the narrative will be decent all the way through :3

    That LE version is tempting. Kind of wished there was some figurine, but that probably would’ve shot the price up even more, lol. If I understand correctly, playing different region physical Vita games won’t be too much of a pain, so I might get it…

    I’m curious what new CGs there will be in exchange for all the ero, nude and guro ones. Not to mention new endings, or even characters/pairings ^^

    • Jackle

      Figurine? Well, their Nitro+ store will have a plush included with the limited edition. But you’re right, it does shoot the price up…to 13kyen ^^;;

      I already own and played the original PC game (plus re:connect), so I prob won’t get this (yet again, I’m a sucker for LE stuff. Decisions, decisions).

  • Elvick

    I don’t think you know what logic is… or love. :P

      I think they meant biologically.

  • Elvick

    Ooh, anime, thanks for sharing that link Sal!

    Going to watch it.

  • Elle

    Anime was OK. Can’t say I am interested after watching it.

    • surakian

      If you haven’t played the game, the first episode of the anime was barely the beginning and not even the full scope of what goes on in the game.

  • Articuno76

    After watching Watamote, I can’t help but think the kinds of girls playing these games are like that shows protagonist. Which is kinda creepy and awesome at the same time :P

    • Guest

      Yeah…no.

  • PrinceHeir

    Already have a game?? :P

    Does anyone know if it’s coming out for the PC in English? If so when?

  • Elvick

    I’m a man.
