Japanese Horror Sequel “NG” Heads West on PC and Consoles

Aksys Games has announced a western release for NG.

The second game in Experience’s “Spirit Hunter” adventure-horror series is launching sometime this October across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PS Vita. The PS4 and Switch versions are hitting retail, while the PC and Vita versions are digital-only.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

NG is the second entry in the new Spirit Hunter series, and the companion story to last year’s award-winning sound novel, Death MarkNG follows the story of a young man on a life-threatening quest to discover who—or what—is responsible for the disappearance of his little sister. To save her, our protagonist must team up with shady characters, face down spirits of legend, and make difficult decisions that can greatly alter the outcome of the game. Can you save your sister and stop evil from destroying all that you hold dear? Or will you find yourself just another victim ofan angry spirit?

Key Features:

  • Creeping Horrors, Familiar Settings – While its predecessor, Death Mark, found its spirits in distinct, horrifying locales, NG weaves fear seamlessly into the mundane. Face down monsters in quiet residential streets, neighborhood parks, and even the protagonist’s own home. Be careful—terror lurks behind every corner.
  • More Than A Visual Novel – NG offers an immersive and exciting gameplay experience, in which players must make decisions at key momentsin order to survive. Players are offered a “Judge System,” which allows them to respond to each event with a spectrum of disparate reactions.
  • Search for Clues – Use a flashlight to examine each location in order to solve the game’s terrifying mystery. Watch out! You may unearth more than you’ve bargained for.
  • Beautiful But Deadly – The game features gorgeous illustrations from artist Fumiya Sumio, who makes the terror in each character’s face impossible to miss and renders horrifying spirits with stunning detail.
