CHAOS;HEAD NOAH is coming west on PC (via Steam) alongside the western release of the CHAOS;HEAD NOAH / CHAOS;CHILD Double Pack on Switch, on October 7th, 2022.
Part of the Science Adventure visual novel / adventure game series, NOAH was originally released in Japan on the Xbox 360 back in 2009, and later got ports for PSP, smartphones, PS3, PS Vita, and finally Switch.
It’s worth noting while fan translation patches have been available, this is the first time the game has been officially released in English.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Takumi Nishijo is a second-year high school student on the verge of becoming a shut-in. “I have no interest in 3D.” He lives surrounded by his beautiful girl figures in his room. He lives in Shibuya, where there has been a series of bizarre serial murders known as “New Generation Madness” (aka NewGen). The culprit has yet to be caught and has been causing unrest on the internet and television. One day, a gruesome image that seemed to predict the next NewGen killing was sent by a mysterious figure called “Shogun.” The next day, on his way home from school, Takumi encounters a horrific crime scene, exactly as predicted. Before the corpse is a blood-soaked girl – Rimi Sakihata.
CHAOS;HEAD NOAH is part of the Science Adventure Series. This series also includes the STEINS;GATE and ROBOTICS;NOTES games. CHAOS;HEAD is considered the first entry in the series, making it the perfect starting point into the long-running and much-beloved Science Adventure series not only for visual novel fans, but also for players new to the genre.
