PQube released new details for the Kadokawa Games developed mystery visual novel Root Letter: Last Answer, coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on August 30 in Europe and September 3 in North America.

The details focus on the new additions made to the game to make it better than the original, which was released in 2016. Root Letter: Last Answer puts players back in the role of searching for clues about Aya Fumino as they uncover the mystery in new ways in a way that new and returning fans can enjoy the adventure.

So here are four new additions that the developer has added to make this an adventure mystery that might be worth your attention:

  • Live-action mode – During gameplay, players will be able to turn on Drama-Mode which turns the game into a live-action version of the story. Complete with real background and reenacted and voiced by 90 different actors.
  • Four addition epilogues – Follow Aya to conclusions that were not in the original title including a Government Conspiracy route as well as a horror route called The Cursed Letter.
  • Quality-of-life updates – The developers have simplified the story branches and improved the skipping function to make reaching the true ending a little easier. They’ve also ironed out parts of the menu to make progress easier to follow.
  • Technical improvements – The inventory system has been reworked and enhanced to make it easier to navigate through the game. The team has also added new trophies.

Root Letter: Last Answer marks the return of the best-selling interactive mystery visual novel. In the game, players will follow the footsteps of Aya Fumino, a school penfriend allegedly involved in a tragic murder 15 years ago.

This murder case has yet to be solved, so it’ll be up to the player to explore the Prefecture of Shimane to uncover clues and track down Aya’s childhood friends for questioning. The catch with this, however, is that her friends are now adults living a peaceful life, so they may not be so willing to give go back to the past and share painful memories.
