In the upcoming third game, players will once again assume the role of a policewoman named Saki Hojo. The gameplay systems test the player’s deduction skills with features like Self-Question, Reasoning Logic, and Liar’s Note. It also uses a limited Courage Point system that determines whether Saki can take actions that require bravery or not.

The release of Shin Hayarigami 3 means that the reboot series will contain the same number of games as the original Hayarigami trilogy that ran from 2004 to 2009. The first two Shin Hayarigami titles are available on Nintendo Switch through a two-in-one pack released in July 2019. Though both games originated on the PlayStation 3 and Vita, only the second game is available on PlayStation 4. Nippon Ichi instead brought the first Shin Hayarigami to mobile devices in December 2017. While the original trilogy was only rated C by CERO, the Shin Hayarigami series took even further steps to explore gruesome fear that it ended up with a CERO Z rating.

Shin Hayarigami 3 will be available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on July 29, 2021.
