Kara no Shoujo was only announced a few weeks ago, but MangaGamer are releasing it a lot sooner than you might think. The Innocent Grey-developed thriller is slated for release on June 29th, for €24.95.
The game will be released on MangaGamer’s website as a digital download, and will also include a set of extensive translation and cultural notes, to help make it more accessible to newcomers to Japanese media. MangaGamer say the notes will also provide extra historical information relevant to the setting for fans that are more familiar with the setting and Japanese culture.
Those historical notes might actually be helpful, since Kara no Shoujo takes place in 1956, after Japan’s defeat in the war. A serial killer that only targets women is on the loose, and it’s up to you, private eye Tokisaka Reiji, to bring him down. You can read more about the game’s plot here.
