After the teaser video for the upcoming horror game, Nippon Ichi Software has finally revealed this mysterious title. The teasers were actually for a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita port of the 2016 PC visual novel Iwaihime: Matsuri.
The protagonist is a new transfer student and starts his carefree life in the Susuda Prefectoral High School. Everything would be perfect if not for his encounter with Toe Kurokami, a gloomy girl who never let’s go of her creepy cursed doll.
The scenario is written by none other than Ryuukishi07, the man behind the popular horror visual novel Higurashi: When They Cry, so you know this will be a creepy adventure. Expect more details in the near future.
Hajakenshou. Crush evil, spread the truth.
It is said that each generation, upon reaching a certain age, all boys of the Susuharai family leave home and become independent. Then, relying only on themselves, they train body and soul until they are accepted as adults. And so I prepared myself for this day, learning a great many things so I’d be ready to live on my own.
Susuda Prefectoral High School. My new school. Originally, I planned to enter in first year rather than transfer in second year. Life at school is carefree, and even pleasant. Everyone has a great time in class 2-A. There’s just… her, Toe Kurokami. “Weird” doesn’t begin to describe her. Always holding that Japanese doll against her chest, never letting go for a second. Some whisper it is a cursed doll, whose hair grows when no one is looking. But it’s just an uncanny doll, with nothing special about it. Yet, perhaps my meeting that girl was fate… No, it was fate.
