Sekai Project have announced they’re localizing Ever17 and Regista/Yeti’s co-developed visual novel, Root Double: Before Crime * After Days.

The game will be known as Root Double: Before Crime * After Days Extended Edition, implying there will be some new content added to the localized version – however, details are currently scant. Let’s dive into the story, for now.

In the game, you play as the amnesiac squad captain Watase Kasasagi, who mysteriously wakes up with his memories lost – while in the middle of a nuclear meltdown in a research facility. He’s lost, confused, and unable to use his experience (now that it’s lost), so he must rescue the survivors, and escape, somehow.


A release date was not confirmed – but we’ll keep you guys posted.
