Death Mark's Successor NG Announced for PS4 in Japan
Experience announced that PS Vita's NG, the second game in the "Spiritual Horror" series containing Death Mark, will be coming to PS4.
Experience revealed today they’ll bring NG to PS4 on March 21. The game is the second game part of Experience’s “Spiritual Horror” series, following Death Mark. NG was first released in Japan for PS Vita on September 13, 2018.
NG‘s story takes place in 1999, in the as-far-as I-know fictional district of Kissouji in Tokyo. The main character and his friends get engulfed in a death game and are forced to fight monsters.
First print copies of NG will include an OST CD for the game and a Drama CD of Death Mark, titled “How to Make Some Good Coffee”. I don’t know the link between coffee and ghosts but I’m sure this title makes sense if you actually played Death Mark, I’m not into horror so I don’t think I’ll be getting it or NG anytime soon.
Experience also announced that a novel adaptation and a manga adaptation of Death Mark will be coming in March 2018. Both the manga and novel will take place during the same timeframe as the original game’s events, but new developments not shown in the game will be depicted in them. The novel will be written by Hitomi Amamiya, while the manga will be drawn by Ena, the mangaka who draws the horror manga Doku Mushi – The Ruins Hotel.
Experience also released the game’s cover, screenshots for the PS4 version, a sample cover for the novel and drafts for the manga. The screenshots are quite scary so you might want to think twice before browsing the gallery.
By the way, in case you’re confused, NG is pronounced “enjii”, like how you’d pronounce the letters in Japanese or in English.
Death Mark just released in the west, on October 31, so maybe NG will come over too, now that it has a PS4 version planned. Vita is still alive in Japan but western developers could definitely make a “Spiritual Horror” Vita themed game at this point.
