Games You've Never Heard Of: Code_18 Coming to Xbox 360 and PSP

Code_18 is the fourth title in what is called the “Infinity” series of games, previously developed and published by Kid, in Japan only. Now developer CyberFront has taken over and are bringing the game to two very different platforms this fall. Why did this title attract my attention? Well, the artwork, for one. But, more importantly, the story is set in the near future and has a very sci-fi plot – it involves time paradoxes! You know how I love me some time paradoxes.

The main character’s name is Hayato, who is involved with the school’s chemistry club. As chemistry classes are wont to do, various experiments happen and that triggers the events that take place in the game. This is an adventure game with various visual novel elements, which you can clearly see in the screens and artwork I’ve included below.

If you’re interested in keeping an eye on this title, they do have a teaser site up, but there isn’t much available to check out there at present. Code_18 is scheduled for a release in Japan in September and can, of course, be easily imported on the PSP. Hit the break for the goods.
