According to reports from the latest Famitsu issue, Acquire’s next title called MIND≒0 will be a dark and stylish RPG featuring 3D dungeons with a school setting. Acquire and Class of Heroes (pictured) maker ZeroDiv are working on this game. KYO is the character designer, ZIZZ Studio is doing sound, and Minato Kushimachi wrote the story.
MIND≒0 is set in various regions of Japan such as Akihabara, Yokohama, Amamiya and Nippori. The starting high school is in Saitama, a region close to Tokyo.
MIND≒0’s combat is said to be played in a stylish command battle system, where MINDs (Mental Inside Nobody Doll) can be summoned. Event scenes will be full voiced 2D illustrations similar to visual novel titles. MIND≒0 will have two connected worlds, the regular world and a maniacal spirit world, where the MIND can be found.
The protagonist is named Yue Kotori. Sana Chikage who is sporty and straight-forward, the reliable yet often silly Shishi Asahina, and the bad company character, Yoichi Ogata are other key characters in the story.
Acquire’s MIND≒0 is currently being developed for Playstation Vita.
