    at the risk of getting down-voted just for asking… but what exactly is this game about? i’ve seen several articles about this game, but no gameplay videos, so i’m not even sure whether i’d want this game or not.

    • Shadowman

      It’s about these group of student that are stuck inside a school of despair, they kill one another and someone got to find out who killed who?

      • Yup, we’re doing things all Battle Royale up in here…or Hunger Games if you prefer…you freakin weirdo. [/D.R.A.T.]

    • Arkana

      The gameplay is a lot like Ace Attorney with investigating the environment and talking to people. Although in the “court” scenes there are some quicktime/minigame things to presenting evidence and arguments.

    • RagingTiger44

      This is a visual novel. Some of those screenshots posted were gameplay footage (If you want to call it that). Arkana and Shadowman more less gave you the gist of the game though.

    • Yan Zhao

      Its similar to the Phoenix Wright games, but with a darker tone in the story.

    • AkiraScare

      Visual novel… like if ace attorney and 999 had a baby…. (^_^)

      • transferstudentx

        its a threesome ace and 999 and persona baby lol

        • AkiraScare

          just say its an orgy between ace, 999, persona and Corpse party while Stein;Gate is filming them lol

      It’s not easy, but I’ll try to explain. It’s like a crossover game which borrows gameplay aspects from different generes.
      – There’s a Visual Novel aspect, where you unveil the plot through exploration, dialogues and events.
      – There’s an RPG aspect, where you develop your character’s skills and special abilities by interacting with the other characters and by taking some decisions when you do it. You also have to comb the locations to find tokens to spend to “fuel” your interactions.
      – There’s the trial aspect, which is made of minigames. However, for how mini they are, they require you to have quite a clear idea of the murder you are investigating (suspicions, evidence, timing, contraddictions…) to be succesfully solved. They are “easy”, but if you don’t really grasp the investigation elements, you can find yourself running in circles and losing. Also, here’s when the RPG aspect is exploited, as your character development grants you extra time, extra shoots, the ability to slow the action for a bit, etc…

    Less than a month *0*

    Finally bought a Vita (waiting for it to come in the mail any day now), and I imagine this’ll be one of my first Vita purchases. I played the PSP demo a while back and while it was pretty interesting, some parts of the trial segment went by too quickly for me to read in Japanese. Glad this got an English release.

  • Pdugna

    Pre-ordered LE and the wait is killing me….gunna be blasting that OST in my room for days

  • Spirit Macardi


  • JohnNiles

    I just realized that the limited edition is sold on NISA’s website, which means when it’s sold out, it’s sold out. So I raged for a bit, but ultimately figured i can live without the extras. If the CD is a sampler, there ought to be a full soundtrack available for import…

  • Zeonsilt
    • Brimfyre

      I preordered it on this screen alone. know nothing about the game.

      It’s rare I do that, but I did it.

    • brostar

      What is bothering me is her neck. Why is it so long?

    • Anthony Birken

      If I ever hear this line in my life (besides a game), I’ll be all over her o-o

  • Alex

    I’ve been avoiding spoilers for so long..the wait is almost over.

    Junko is my favorite looking character so far.

  • アティ

    Investigative Meeting Verdict: Day 1 purchase for me!

  • Mirai

    People who haven’t played this game yet should not be looking at these screenshots particulary one of them is a clear spoiler.

  • TheExile285

    Well then O_O

    • Warboss Aohd

      that line is so over the top (and something i can imagine people doing) that it’s great.

    • Xinen

      Reminds me of why one of my… Japanese *cough*artist friends has this as his avatar. Takes me back to when Dragons Dogma came out, we shared some absolutely awesome characters.

      This screenshot alone sold me.
      Beautiful girl, Tanned skin, Cleavage…
      Question: Is the protagonist named or is he essentially us?

      • TheExile285

        Tan girls are the best

        The protag has a name that escapes me. Starts with an N I think.

        • Nightmare637

          Naegi, poor Naegi to average to be remembered.:(

      • Göran Isacson

        Protag is named and a driving character in the game, so yeah: no “paste your face here” fantasies here, I’m afraid.

        Also,just to be sure: this is the very furthest thing from a game about flirting with pretty girls. just so you know.

        • UnderNight In-Seth

          I know it’s a murder mystery solving type game but I usually prefer games where ‘you’ are the main character. Whether it’s Shooter, Action RPG or whatever. Character Creation (or games where you name the MC) is a big thing to me, then again most games pull it off horribly making you feel un-important.

  • Nightmare637

    I can’t wait for this to come out.

    I got my Limited Edition on Pre order I even imported a Vita accessory set from Amazon.

    got it when it was cheaper and I am happy with my purchase.

    • TheCynicalReaper

      Good thing you got the LE pre-ordered because there isn’t any left at the NISA store.

  • lordsofskulls

    More GAMES like this too scratch my Blood Craving Darker Side.

  • Tiramii

    Had this preordered since last month. Can’t wait. <3

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha all these people going “OH MAN ALL THESE HOT GIRLS I AM TOTALLY SOLD ON THIS” and I’m just sitting here not knowing whether to weep or cheer in despair for them…
