Kadokawa Games Reveal Mystery Adventure Game, Root Letter, for PS4 and PS Vita

Kadokawa Games have revealed a new game in the form of Root Letter for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

The game was revealed during their fall media briefing, today, and it’s set to release worldwide sometime next spring.

Featured above, you can view the game’s debut trailer. Love Plus character designer Mino Taro is on character designs and planning, the scenario is being written by Dario Fuji, and music is being composed Takashi Nitta.

Root Letter is the first game in their new series of youth mystery-adventure games. The story is a human drama, set in the Shimane Prefecture, with the story being poised as something akin to “melting the frozen past,” and “walking towards the future.” The game has both adventure and simulation components.

You can find the official English description for the game below, via Kadokawa:

The truth is endless sorrow.

The first title of the series “Kadokawa Game Mystery.” A collection of adventure games that explore human drama, featuring local Japanese culture and history.

Root Letter is set in the Shimane prefecture, a land with a rich history and beautiful nature.

The player will engage an adventure to solve the mystery of Fumino Aya, a pen pal friend from high school who disappeared after leaving a mysterious letter. A letter delivered 15 years later…

    Looks interesting. As long as it has more gameplay than a visual novel, I’m in.
