Dusk Diver, the upcoming action game from Taiwanese publisher JFi Games and developer JERA Game Studio set in Taipei’s Ximending neighborhood, will launch worldwide for both PlayStation 4 and Switch this fall with Japanese and Chinese voice-overs, and English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean subtitle options, global publisher Justdan International announced.
While the game is currently available for PC via Steam Early Access, the console versions of Dusk Diver will have additional aspects not available in the PC version, as well as limited editions. While a console release was previously only confirmed for Switch, the addition of a PlayStation 4 release was decided in response to user demand.
The special collaboration song “Sensen Shoujo” sung by voice actor Kate Mizukiri was also announced. Mizukiri plays a mysterious girl named Nemea in the game, and the song delivers the world view through the character’s perspective. The song is composed by Shade, whose previous works include Rance VII: Sengoku Rance and Azur Lane.
