This week’s Famitsu has revealed that Eve: Burst Error is coming to PS Vita and PC, with some new upgrades.
The classic visual novel was developed under YU-NO and Mystereet creator Hiroyuki Kanno back in 1995 for PC and in 1997 for the Sega Saturn. Now, the game is coming to both PC And PS Vita as Eve: Burst Error R in 2016.
We’ve also gotten the first look at the game’s visual upgrades, via a new online preview over on Famitsu, which you can view above as well as below:
The new version has the aforementioned updated visuals, the option to skip text, among other features. A comparison from the Sega Saturn original and the newly remastered version can be viewed above (original on the left, remastered on the right).
Both the characters and the event CG visuals have been completely remastered digitally as well as recolored, using the original game as its development base of course. Normal images are also being updated:
It’s also worth mentioning there’s a new event CG being drawn by character designer Nao Tajima. In case you’ve never heard of the game (or are in need of a refresher), you can find a synopsis of it below, via the Visual Novel Database:
A Bizarre Serial Murder Mystery. There’s A Serial Killer Close By. A Prohibited Psychothriller. The Multi-Sight System Reveals Surprising Truth!
In this game there are two heroes, Kojiroh and Marina, who are each called to solve their own cases. This game allows you to switch characters at any time to solve the mysteries these heroes encounter. This “Multi-Sight Adventure” allows you to view what’s happening behind-the-scenes from the other character’s perspective, bump into each other, and sometimes even help each other out. Together, they come closer and closer to the shocking truth through their combined actions and skills of deduction.
Marina’s Episode: Marina is a national intelligence agent with a 99% success rate. Her new assignment is to protect the daughter of a Japanese embassy official stationed abroad. As you encounter numerous attackers, you become aware of a dangerous government dispute that is the root of all these attacks.
Kojiroh’s Episode: A seemingly down-on-his-luck private investigator finally gets a break, as he is hired to locate some mysterious piece of art. Even though he feels a little weird about this case, the pay is huge! Yet he may be drawn into an unexpected nightmare involving a string of bizarre murders.
Eve: Burst Error R is launching for PS Vita and PC in Japan sometime next year.
