Color me surprised! The Night of the Kamaitachi, one of Chunsoft’s Super Famicom sound novels, will be localized thanks to Agetec. The news comes from Seattle’s Casual Connect conference where Agetec and Chunsoft said they’re going to release The Night of the Kamaitachi for iOS and Android hoping to sell it to the e-book audience.
The Night of the Kamaitachi is a murder mystery game where you have to figure out which person is the killer in a ski lodge. The game has multiple endings depending on what choices you make. The Night of the Kamaitachi is essentially an early visual novel, but instead of focusing on the characters (all of which are silhouettes), the game makes use of music to set the mood.
Chunsoft, well now Spike Chunsoft, continue to release new games in The Night of the Kamatachi series today. The most recent one, True Night of the Kamaitachi was a PlayStation Vita launch title.
Thanks for the tip Anna! (P.S. if anyone at Agetec is reading this contact us, we want to hear about your visual/sound novel plans!)
