Kadokawa has released information on two new characters appearing in the upcoming mystery visual novel Root Film – deuteragonist Riho’s manager, and the assistant to one of the rival directors working on the Shimane Mystery Drama TV project. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
Shouko Manabe (CV: Noriko Hidaka)
Riho’s manager, who was the one who got her the job as a lead in the drama. She’s currently location scouting in Shimane alongside Riho.
Monami Haishima (CV: Yuuko Minaguchi)
The assistant to one of the directors assigned to the Shimane Mystery Drama project, Isaya Ibuse. She also handles managerial duties for Ibuse, and is something of a mature secretary for the director.
Root Film will come to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe, though a release window has not yet been announced. It will come to both systems in Japan in Spring 2020. Recently, Root Film character designer Tarou Mino talked about how they changed up the artstyle for this latest game.
