Visual Novel WORLDEND SYNDROME Announced For 2019!on January 21, 2019 by Reuben Mount
We love a good visual novel, but sometimes the more romantic ones can be a little bland, and that’s where the awesome mystery ones come in! So, we were glad to hear that PQube and Arc System Works are releasing suitably creepy romantic mystery visual novel WORLDEND SYNDROME for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Developed by the studio famous for not only exceptional fighting games, but also a variety of outstanding indies, WORLDEND SYNDROME combines the thrills of love and mystery. Meet the beautiful characters designed by Yuki Kato, lead artist of the BLAZBLUE franchise, explore the picturesque seaside town and discover a nightmare that seems to recur every 100 years.
In PQube’s words:
“The smell of the sea, the sound of the waves – Mihate-chou is a gorgeous town!”, the new transfer student thought as he walked to his new home for the first time. The years at his former school had not been particularily pleasant, so he was happy to find a scenery that seemed to be colorful and bright – almost inviting.
A rope tightens around a neck.
As the first weeks passed, the exchange student grew more and more sceptical, as life has taught him that every rose has its thorn. What could this town’s “thorn” be? He found friends in class, joined a club, enjoyed coming home after school and some girls even seemed to be interested in him. This place was too perfect to be true and he started to become scared of what was hiding below its surface.
A knife slowly cuts into skin.
Disappearance incidents and corpses coming back to life every 100 years? What. A. Joke.
Well, that sounds suitable creepy to us, so we’re in. PQube have also said that more information about WORLDEND SYNDROME will be released soon. Do you think you will pick this title when it lands? What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter, and check back for more coverage of this and other Japanese titles!
The visual novel is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2019.
