PQube and Kadokawa Games have revealed that the release date for the visual novel Root Film, on Nintendo Switch, will be March 19 in the west.
The release date was found on the Nintendo Store page. However, digital pre-orders are currently not open. This also doesn’t confirm the PlayStation 4 release date at this time. It should be noted that the release in the west could change.
Still, these posts are usually a good indication of the game’s official release date as the publisher waits for the digital pre-orders to become available for an official announcement.
Root Film is about a TV series called “Shimane Mystery Drama Project,” which had been canceled 10 years before the game’s events. Three teams are put together in hopes of rebooting the project, but things are brought to a standstill when 23-year-old Rintar Yagumo and his coworkers are disrupted by a murder that takes place.
The gameplay in the Root Film has a mix between visual novel and adventure elements. Players will use their intuition to pick out keywords during conversation and pry further into other’s statements. There is a feature known as Max Mode when the player confronts other characters to resolve a mystery. This has the interface of a fighting-game as they use the evidence collected to rebut the lies of those accused.
We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date with the development and release of Root Film.
