Anonymous;Code New Trailer Reveals Amadeus Kurisu, Fall 2021 Release, PS Vita Version Canceled
The full manga style game Anonymous;Code is coming in Fall 2021 on PS4 and Switch in Japan. Chiyomaru Shikura also teased an anime adaptation.
On October 25, Mages held a live stream and talk show event for the Science Adventure Series, with Mages President Chiyomaru Shikura revealing a new trailer for Anonymous;Code, and a Fall 2021 release. Moreover, Anonymous;Code is now coming to PS4 and Switch only. The PlayStation Vita version was canceled.
The Anonymous;Code segment of the event featured two seiyuu: Shiina Natsukawa, who voices Momo Aizaki in the game, and Ayano Yamamoto, who voices Kana Kurashina. During the segment, Chiyomaru Shikura most notably teased that “there are no games in the Science Adventure Series that doesn’t get an anime adaptation, so look forward to it”. Strongly hinting that Anonymous;Code will get an anime as well. Following Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate, Robotics;Note, Chaos;Child, and Occultics;Nine.
Mages explained via a press release that Anonymous;Code “was being developed with the intent of releasing on PS Vita, but seeing the current state of the market and production environment, it had to be canceled.”
Anonymous;Code is the latest game of the Science Adventure Series. Protagonist Takaoka Polon has the supernatural power of being able to load and save. Using the same save slots available to the player. With Polon talking to the player and noticing the saves he doesn’t make himself. Chiyomaru Shikura explained Anonymous;Code in detail in a Famitsu interview we translated.
Anonymous;Code was first announced alongside Steins;Gate Zero and Occultic;Nine in March 2015. While the other two games have been released for a long while now, Anonymous;Code kept getting delayed, until now, hopefully.
Moreover, Anonymous;Code is an ADV game (what we call visual novels outside Japan) with a full manga style. The character designer is also a mangaka, Haruhisa Nakata. The story is told through manga panels, and players can use the Manga Trigger, a special power to influence the dialogues and frames. The trailer below showcases the Save and Load power, and introduces multiple characters. Including Amadeus Kurisu from Steins;Gate Zero.
