Publisher Aniplex and developer Fahrenheit 213 have announced Murder Mystery Paradox: Fifteen Years of Summer, a new visual novel. The new murder mystery visual novel is launching for Windows PC (via Steam) sometime this summer, and will only support Japanese.
The game was previously teased by Aniplex and ex-Fate/Grand Order director Yosuke Shiokawa – now in development at his new studio Fahrenheit 213. The game’s synopsis is as follows:
August, 2004. Shikinejima — a secluded island that only a few hundred people call home. Fifteen-year-old Itsuki Amazawa has come to visit the island for the very first time. At his adoptive mother’s childhood home, he and his newly met cousins pass the summer days in peace and quiet.
That is, until Itsuki learns the truth about the island… Strange incidents known to the locals as “Shikinejima Vanishings” have been occurring around the island. And deeply entangled in these puzzling happenings are people that Itsuki holds dear. Will he be able to uncover the truth and save those he cares about?
The objective of the game is to investigate the insular island and expose the one responsible for the incidents. As the player is also a suspect, they will find themselves under the scrutiny of others. The player must unravel the mystery before time runs out by speaking with the suspects to gather clues and deduce the truth. At the same time, they must clear their own name by gaining trust from those around them.
Murder Mystery Paradox: Fifteen Years of Summer is the latest visual novel from Aniplex and ex-Fate/Grand Order director Yosuke Shiokawa. It is set to launch for Windows PC (via Steam) sometime this summer, and will only support Japanese.
