Last Bullet Sets Its Sights On April

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

Blend Konami’s Silent Scope with a visual novel, put it on the Nintendo DS and you get something like Last Bullet. In the game you control Karin, an aspiring sniper and a student.

In the sniper segments players carefully position a scope with the touch screen and press the shoulder buttons to fire. Karin has a set number of targets to hit each round and a limited amount of time to shoot them. When you’re trying to aim Karin can enter concentration mode for a short time to zoom in, but during this mode she is affected by bad weather conditions that shake the scope and even… breathing? While it would be “realistic” to have Last Bullet pick up faint noises from the microphone I imagine it will be annoying when playing the game in public. I suppose you need to have a steady hand to play the sniping part so that probably rules out train sessions.


Can’t wait to find out for sure when the Last Bullet comes out on April 23 in Japan.
