Playism launched the first trailer for the upcoming adventure game Yume Nikki -Dream Diary-, coming to PC on February 23.

Yume Nikki -Dream Diary- is not a remake of the original game released in 2004. Instead, it is a complete reimagining of the original release with influences from recent indie juggernauts to create an experience that is totally unique. The team at Playism and Active Gaming Media have partnered with Yume Nikki publisher Kadokawa Games and original creator Kikiyama to bring this project to life for a new generation of gamers. Yume Nikki -Dream Diary- will also feature new creatures that have lay dormant in Kikiyama’s mind for 16 years.

Coincidentally, DualShockers has covered Yumi Nikki in a previous feature detailing some of the best Japanese indie games that you’ve never played. Our staff gives an in depth explanation of Yumi Nikki’s development and why it is praised by those who have played it.

Furthermore, the development team would like to push the boundaries of what game creators can do by using RPG Maker tools, the same program that was used to create the original work.

The newest trailer gives players a preview of the sound quality and the atmospheric gameplay that shows the graphical improvement in character design and environments.
