Amnesia: Memories will be released in just a few weeks’ time, meaning the hype for this popular otome game and visual novel is quickly snowballing into something fierce! Idea Factory International has now released new screenshots of the characters playing mini games, and a new trailer demonstrating gameplay. Both of these new goodies allow fans to gain a better understanding of this game’s unique features.
We’ve got a gameplay trailer and new screenshots for Amnesia™: Memories! In the trailer you’ll see how your choices affect your relationship parameters with your chosen bachelor, as well as how characters change personalities based on the world you’ve chosen. You’ll also get to see the Mini-Games in action!
The screenshots show off the Mini-Games that heat up the game of love – Air Hockey and Rock, Paper, Scissors. Separate from the main story, these games let you go head-to-head with one of the game’s eligible bachelors. It’s all fun and games until someone falls in love.
The trailer shows just how vital your choices are. Reply to your bachelor with a less than convincing answer means that the suspicion stat will be raised, likewise picking a careless answer may result in your affection stat being lowered. The right choices aren’t particularly obvious, which means you’ll need to put in some real thought before making your decision. Indeed I can see the save and load options being used quite a few times!
As the trailer points out, although you will be coming into contact with familiar faces in each play through, depending on which ‘world’ or timeline you have chosen (Diamond, Heart, Clover, Spade or Joker), depends on how that particular character will regard you. Ukyō, for example, may very well be compliant enough to watch you fall in love with Ikki, Toma, Kent or Shin outside of his own ‘world’, but when it comes to you finally choosing the Joker… well, I’ll not spoil anything for all you future heroines! Just don’t expect characters to act the same way regardless of which ‘world’ you choose!
Another feature shown in the new trailer and screenshots is the use of mini games. Beating a bachelor in air hockey and rock, paper, scissors allows you to unlock special images. These mini games are separate from the main storyline, so winning or losing against your chosen bachelor won’t affect your stats with them.
Remember, Amnesia: Memories will be available for the PS Vita on August 25, 2015 for NA, with a PS Vita digital edition available for the EU on August 26, 2015. A Steam release will come soon after. Make sure to mark your calendars!
