Nippon Ichi Software have released a new trailer for their visual novel Murder Detective: Jack the Ripper.

In it we can see how the game’s narrative can split down different paths based on “Detective” or “Murder” choices.

The trailer also shows off Sub-Stories, a database of characters, and the Bonus Theater. The latter of which appears to be some sort of short skits with characters who look very close to other characters that appear in the game.

Murder Detective: Jack the Ripper will launch in Japan on April 26th for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
