Jack Jeanne Demo Lets Players Start Its Story

Broccoli released a new demo for Tokyo Ghoul creator Sui Ishida’s “shonen opera” themed game, Jack Jeanne, on the Japanese Nintendo eShop. The demo lets players check out the introduction in its entirety. [Thanks, 4Gamer.]

The Jack Jeanne demo starts from the very beginning up until the “Newcomer Performance” part of the story, where the protagonist, Saki Tachibana, appears on stage for her very first performance. It will include main and sub-scenario parts. The “Newcomer Performance” part features two rhythm action tracks. One is a “Dance Rhythm Action” performance, and the other is a “Singing Rhythm Action” part. It’s also worth noting that save data from the demo will not carry over to the full version.

The story of Jack Jeanne follows the Tamasaka all men’s opera troupe. Tamasaka is a prestigious troupe that owns the Univers Opera School, a school known for bringing up talent and dazzling performances. Not only is it difficult to get into Univers, but students are split into four classes and must compete to earn the title of Univers’ top class. While Saki Tachibana had already given up on theater, she found an opportunity to attend Univers. However, she must fulfill two conditions to enroll. The first condition is that she must star in the final play at the end of the first year. The second condition is that she must conceal the fact that she is a woman.

Check out the characters designed by Sui Ishida in the trailer below:

Jack Jeanne will release for the Nintendo Switch in Japan on March 18, 2021.
