Death Come True introduces a new character named Akane Sachimura, a police investigator portrayed by Chiaki Kuriyama.
Akane was in the same hotel room as Karaki when he woke up. However, she was found tied and unconscious inside a bathtub. She’s a female police officer from Special Investigations. She’s well put-together, but is susceptible to emotions at times.
Akane’s actress Chiaki Kuriyama is best known in the West for her roles as Takako Chigusa in Battle Royale and Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill.
Here’s a tweet from Death Come True director and scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka with Chiaki Kuriyama:
Playing the role of Akane Sachimura is Chiaki Kuriyama, who appeared in Kill Bill and Battle Royale. She did a fantastic job of course with acting the role and also acted with a great understanding of the characteristic of this game and its’ uniqueness. She is a great actress! pic.twitter.com/AYY2UQwO9u

Izanagi Games CEO and producer Shinsuke Umeda also added:
Shinsuke Umeda: “Chiaki Kuriyama will be acting as the female police investigator, Akane Sachimura. I’m working on a project with someone from Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill… I wish I could tell myself back when I was a student working at a video store talking about Pulp Fiction at the register.”
Death Come True releases in Japan in 2020 with plans for multiple platforms and languages.
