Qureate revealed that they are developing a new adventure horror game called Livestream: Escape from Hotel Izanami, in development for a Nintendo Switch to release on April 15, 2021.
Livestream: Escape from Hotel Izanami stars three characters, Mio Ikoma, Nana Sakurai, and Azusa Shiraishi who find themselves in an abandoned hotel. During gameplay, players will investigate the environment and look for close to solve the mystery of the hotel to escape from a murderous mascot that is out to kill them.
Character designer Waon Inui is working on the project along with scenario writer group C-Garden with producer Yuji Usuda heading the team.
The game is described below:
Online streamers Mio Ikoma, Nana Sakurai and Azusa Shiraishi travel to the locally famous haunted resort, the Hotel Izanami, at Nana’s request to shoot a video there. It would be a film shoot at an average haunted location with no particular legend attached. To finish shooting without a hitch and get an end result that was vaguely horror-esque…was all they wanted.
During filming, Mio gets separated from the group, and suddenly gets attacked by a mascot costume that has come to life. From that point on, the trapped girls are at the mercy of numerous horrors throughout the hotel. Why is a mascot trying to harm them, and why have they been shut in to the hotel with no escape? Can the three girls escape from the hotel with their lives?
Although meant to be scary, players can expect some ecchi moments the that developer is known for.
