Compile Heart, the company behind Cross Edge, has the license to Animax’s Hell Girl (aka Jigoku Shojo) anime. Hell Girl is a series about revenge. Anyone harboring animosity can log on to a website and condemn soul to hell. Of course, there’s a price to pay. Whoever condemns someone to hell also goes to hell when their life ends.
Compile Heart made a Hell Girl game for the Nintendo DS and now they’re working on Hell Girl: Mioyosuga for the PlayStation 2. The title is mystery adventure game and it’s slated for release on September 17.
No US release has been announced and I wouldn’t expect one… unless Compile Heart adapts Hell Girl with the movie Drag Me To Hell. You know, that could work!
