Remember Cave’s Instant Brain? Here’s The Opening Movie And Screenshots

By Ishaan . July 13, 2011 . 1:32pm

It’s been a few months since we talked about it, so some of our newer readers may not be familiar with Cave’s Instant Brain.

Quick recap: this is a visual novel adventure that has you playing as a “legendary” reporter who has lost his memories. Here’s the intro:



The odd-looking gun in the opening movie is an “Exporger”. It’s actually a camera. Instant Brain takes place in the future, in a world of showbiz. Hataraki, the main character, gets involved in a conspiracy somehow connected to his missing memories.


Instant Brain is slated for release this fall in Japan. The game is coming to the Xbox 360 at the very least; other platforms have not yet been announced. Here’s an older trailer if you want to see more. We also have new screenshots. The one above is pretty tiny, but you can enlarge the ones below:

      “Instant Breasts” “Just add hot water!”

      Anyway, a quick Google translate from an article in Famitsu and I’m surprised by the voice actors behind it: 

      Mamiko Noto as the hot android maid, Miyuki Suwashiro as that blue short-haired chick and then there’s other known voice actresses like Rie Kugumiya, Marina Inoue and Chiaki Takahashi.

        yea grade-A seiyuu cast, Noto FTW :)  Hanazawa Kana too.. and Ootsuka Akio (Snake) and Horiuchi Kenyuu (Raiden) for the guys :)  art looks very nice, like the futuristic design..

    • Shinji Kazuya

      Instant Boobs!

      • Just add water?

        :< Oh, if it only were that easy…

  • 1. Name still sucks.
    2. Premise is one of the more interesting out there.
    3. Amnesia is cliche, but I’m always curious about the truth.
    4. Wonder how they will work mini-games into it.

    5. Yes, everyone’s a pervert.

  • Guest

    Yes..another game we’ll never get to play…

    • You don’t ever have anything that isn’t snarky or negative to say, do you?

  • AzureNova

    Wow! This looks and sounds really kool. I hope ill be able to play it one day…….

  • Darkrise
    • Don’t worry! She.. she’s just levitating. D:

      • Darkrise

        Damn, link changed… My reaction was for image 7.

        • Well that’s a whole ‘nother story! Make that two.

      • Aoshi00

        So that’s why it’s rated Cero A lol…  anyway, awesome seiyuu cast and art and interesting premise, so get :)  Art-wise this is better than Dunamis.. but getting that also..

  • So, you’ve got a badass futuristic camera and a bunch of girls with awfully large breasts… I wonder where that will lead.

  • JustaGenericUser

    Who in the world is that man…woman….man…person?

    Also the girl in the very last screencap looks like Noire from Neptunia…

  • shuratan

    I see Hanazawa Kana on therefor making this game a must to check out! wahahaha 

  • Famitsu Xbox 360 said it is only on Xbox 360

  • Chow

    “Exporger” …sounds kinda dirty. ;)

    Also, that’s gotta be most sarcastic design for a camera: “Hey, do you mind if I shoot you? …for the newspaper.”

    But you have to imagine him putting on sunglasses in the middle of the statement, followed by The Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again.
