Chunsoft ports PlayStation 3 sound novel to the Wii

Imabikisou came out as one of the rumble ready PlayStation 3 games last year and fizzled from the public eye after remote play was discovered. The lack of attention is far from unsurprising. Even in Japan the sound novel genre is niche, in North America it’s nonexistent.

Instead of moving on Chunsoft is repacking Imabikisou with a new episode, revised controls for the Wii remote and speaker noises as Imabikisou Kaimeihen. Sega will publish it sometime this year in Japan. Despite the popularity of the Wii, a chance for a North American release is at best extremely unlikely.

 

At least Imabikisou won’t be forgotten. The chilling horror story will go down as the first and maybe only PlayStation 3 to Nintendo Wii port.
