MyDearest announced that DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate, a new title in the Chrones series, will launch on Meta Quest 2 on September 22, 2022. A Nintendo Switch version is still currently in development.
“We wanted to make the best game in the world,” says Kento Kishigami, producer at MyDearest, “we started development (of Dyschronia) without any compromise in graphics, game system, motion, music story, etc. We ignored the schedule and budget and made sure we had the best creators for each element.” He goes on to say, “I think it’s really rare to find a game that is so dedicated to delivering such a great experience for the player. I love all of our past works but this is the first time I have been truly moved by one.”
In DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate, players assume the role of Hal, a Special Supervisor in Astrum Close City. A futuristic marine location, Astrum Close City is a place where crime has been eradicated. When the founder of the city is suddenly murdered, Hal must step in and bring the suspect to justice.
To help, Hall can access the memories of objects through a process known as Memory Dive. This is where he will piece together evidence that will push the narrative forward. Everything can be a clue in this adventure. The game also features free movement as players can move around the environment during investigations.
“I have always been fascinated by immersive and interactive storytelling experiences,” states MyDearest Director Ao Matsuoka, “unlike previous gaming systems, VR is a medium that excels at depicting a first person experience in a deep and natural way. We wanted to create a first-person VR game that portrays the complex intertwined subject of an ensemble drama. The whole team brought so many ideas to the table to make it as interesting as possible. We hope you enjoy Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate!”
Following the release of the Meta Quest 2 version of the game will be released on Switch, with additional episodes to follow.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the development of DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate.
