Process of Elimination is launching for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in early 2023.

In this title, an infamous serial killer with over a hundred victims, The Quartering Duke, has brought the country into a state of unimaginable havoc. To permanently cease this ongoing terror, the world’s top detectives unite under the Detective Alliance on the island of Morgue. However, a relatively unremarkable detective, Wato Hojo, ends up joining the Alliance and discovers that the Quartering Duke is one of them.

Players will utilize 14 detectives to find out who this serial killer is. Each character boasts unique skills and tools, and choice-based gameplay while exploring the island of Morgue will grant players crucial information. During investigations, the Denouement ability can be used to do various tasks, such as predicting the future and obtaining clues. Moreover, numerous locales on the island will house clues and mysteries to uncover, like a manor, research facility, and maze. It is also worth noting that only Japanese audio will be included.
