imageA genius prosecutor is thrown off a building and dies. In the underworld Yoshikawa wakes up and is given the Akasha, a book with all of truths in the world, by Yama Raja. The lord of the underworld wants him to analyze unsolved cases and find the truth.


That’s the premise of Trick x Logic. You help Yoshikawa by perusing the Akasha in search for keywords. While only truth is written in the Akasha, criminals can lie and it’s up to you to investigate by using found keywords. Once you come up with a resolution you write who, when, where, how, and why the crime was committed.


Chunsoft, a studio known for sound novels and the critically acclaimed 428, is the game’s developer. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan picked up the publishing rights.


Trick x Logic will be sold in stores as two separate seasons. Trick x Logic Season 1 has files one through four and Trick x Logic Season 2 has five through ten. Each game costs 2,980 yen ($33). Both seasons are slated for release this year.

  • Sadly this game will never be localized :(.

    • Jaxx-Leviathan

      Indeed, that is most likely true. Can’t see how anyone localizing it would do the vertical columns, where things are written with just enough space to be done vertically, well enough when being done horizontially.

      • I wasn’t thinking of vertical text being the issue, the issue from my point of view is from a business point of view, I guess, since this game would cost a lot to
        translate, etc, but it would sell like… 1000 copies or less.
