Kowloon Highschool Chronicle 1

During Kowloon Highschool Chronicle,  players will take on the role of a transfer student at Kamiyoshi Academy in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Although he may seem ordinary, he’s actually a treasure hunter. Along with a few new friends, he sets out to uncover the mysteries of an ancient civilization. However, that will require him and his crew to overcome a few obstacles, including traps, monsters called “Kehito,” and even the Studen Council. He’ll build relationships with his friends throughout the game, solve some puzzles, and fight some enemies until he completes his goal.

Players can choose from different classmates to create relationships with and a party of characters. This will also come into play when facing enemies because not having a strong party will weaken you in the long run. In addition, the game’s conversation system allows you to build a relationship with the characters and respond with different emotions. The game was remastered for Switch hardware.
