FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PlayStation 4 in Q4 2019; Consoles Feature Additional Content

TOKYO – Oct. 16, 2019 – Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) publishing label UNTIES in collaboration with developers Cherrymochi and mebius. will bring Tokyo Dark - Remembrance -, the anime-style murder mystery merging visual novel and adventure features, to Nintendo Switch on Nov. 7. The macabre tale will creep up on PlayStation 4 this year.

 

Tokyo Dark - Remembrance - expands the gripping story of the original Tokyo Dark with updated and additional content as well as new endings.

 

Detective Itō Ayami hasn’t had a full night’s sleep since the horrifying occurrences leading to her partner’s disappearance. Haunted by eerie images of a young girl and red marks painted all over town, she must fight the mysterious, dark power threatening her sanity on her mission to reunite with her lost colleague.

 

Every action impacts the storyline, thanks to the S.P.I.N. (Sanity, Professionalism, Investigation, Neurosis) system. Stay cool to gain Professionalism and help from coworkers. Drink on the job to cope with the ghastly images threatening Ayami’s Sanity. Stuck on a puzzle? Wandering around too much can raise the Neurosis stat. Everything Itō does can open new doors or cut her off from other options down the line, affecting the availability of more than 10 possible endings.

 

Tokyo Dark - Remembrance - features animated sequences from Graphnica, the studio responsible for scenes in Breath of the WildXenoblade Chronicles XHellsing Ultimate and more. Accented by a sinister soundtrack, eye-catching graphics inspired by real locations in Tokyo, propelled by Japanese mythology as well as urban myths, and tempered by the cultural influences of an international development team, Tokyo Dark - Remembrance - presents a compelling story that’s hard to shake once it takes hold.

 

“Walking the streets of Tokyo will never feel the same after playing Tokyo Dark - Remembrance -,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “With new content and additional endings, the tale has more horrific variety than ever, appealing to fans of Japanese horror stories and western murder-mysteries alike.”
