During NIS America’s 2018 Press Event, the publisher released a new trailer for Suda51’s noir visual novel The 25th Ward: The Silver Case coming to PlayStation 4 and PC, Linux, and Mac.
The trailer shows gameplay from the visual novel that is set five years after the events of its predecessor The Silver Case. In a room of the “Bayside Tower Land” apartment complex, a woman has been found murdered without a clue to the whereabouts of the killer.
Following a series of random events, told over multiple protagonists including the returning character Morishima Tokio, the pieces will fall into place.
The world created by Suda51 is a “Kill the Past” universe, where the world is at the edge of collapse inhabited by anti-heroes and misfits. The 25th Ward: The Silver Case uses the same “Film Window” system introduced in The Silver Case, with new visuals, sounds, and controls.
Additionally, three additional chapters, Black Out, White Out, and Yuki will be added to Correctness and Placebo, which are completely new story scenarios written for this version of the game.
