Circle Entertainment announced that the Lose developed visual novel Maitetsu: Pure Station will receive a PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch release in the west at an announced date.
Maitetsu: Pure Station is a port of 2017’s PC release Maitetsu, which was published by Sekai Project. The game follows protagonist Migita Sotetsu who has just received word that an industrial factory is going to be built along a landmark river in his hometown of Ohitoyo. In an attempt to stop it, Sotetsu returns home to try and change the minds of those in charge of the factory being built. However, half of the town’s citizens support the building while the other half fear the potential pollution it will bring to their river. Another issue to keep in mind is that Ohitoyo is in a budgeting crisis and is in desperate need of financial stability. Sotetsu takes it upon himself to figure out how to solve this crisis and bring the town to financial independence.
It’s around this time that Sotetsu meets an android-like being known as a “Raillord” named Hachiroku. The two characters forge a bond together in hopes to restore Ohitoyo to its former glory.
In case you were wondering, the console release will be the all-ages version of the game and not the 18+ version available to PC players through a patch. The console version of the game will be based on the Hikari Feild published version of the game.
