Sekai Project has announced the western release of 9-nine-: New Episode. The game is a collection of short stories showing what happened to the heroines after the events in the previous games. The visual novel will be available on PC -via Steam– on March 18, 2022.
9-Nine- is a series of supernatural mystery novels that takes place in the town of Shiromitsugawa. Each episode tells the story of a different heroine in a place where mysterious Artifacts give powers to their users and a series of murders are taking place. There were a total of four titles, with 9-nine-:Episode 4 offering a finale to the narrative.
The new episode has stories for all the four heroines, which includes Miyako (CV: Fukuen Misato), Haruka (CV: Yamaoka Yuri), Sora (CV: Tanezaki Atsumi) and Noa (CV: Fujita Akane). The main character, a boy called Kakeru, is voiced by Abe Atsushi and the title is fully voiced by those Japanese seiyuu.
The story is written by Kazuki Fumi, whose other works include Kimagure Temptation, Nanairo Reincarnation and the upcoming Café Stella and the Reapers’ Butterflies. Character designs and illustrations were made by Izumi Tsubasu, who also worked on Summer Pockets.
The game will include English, Japanese and Chinese text options, as well as a dual language display option. This feature was also present on previous 9-nine- episodes and may be handy for people who are still in the process of learning Japanese (or Chinese).
