Launch Trailer for Visual Novel-RPG Hybrid The Longest 5 Minutes

NIS America has shared the launch trailer for The Longest 5 Minutes.

Featured above, the new trailer was released ahead of the hybrid visual novel RPG launching next week.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via NIS America:

Originally developed by Nippon Ichi Software and Syupro-DX, The Longest Five Minutes will take you inside the mind of a hero during his final encounter with an epic and evil Overlord. As the story unfolds, the conversations you have with your party and the Overlord will unlock memories of the hero’s journey. Each memory plays out in classic 8-bit RPG style, and the outcome of those memories affect your party in their final battle.

Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Overlord himself, but suddenly loses all memories of his adventure.

His finishing moves, the name of his hometown, and even the reason he’s trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place, all gone. Our hero feels as though he’s letting his allies down…

In the midst of battle, his allies’ words and the Overlord’s taunting triggers flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece. Our hero tries to regain his priceless memories before it’s too late, but the Overlord stands before him, his power unyielding!

What can happen in The Longest Five Minutes!?

Key Features:

  • Who am I? – Relive your memories and journey with your friends through a nostalgic RPG world!
  • Reexperience Your Past! – Remember your signature move? Know that spell? Flashback has a unique power: Reexperience! Gain reexperience points the more memories you visit. Now, face the Demon King!
  • Let’s Take a Break! – Choose from three mini-games: Super Chain Reaction, Haunted Run, or Slot Machine to get more reexperience points!

    So many games for NISA to absolutely this year. It’s like ruining Ys with their taint wasn’t enough for them.
