On the other hand, the announcement does not mention Root Film, the second “Kadokawa Games Mystery” visual novel that was then released in 2021.

On top of that, its character design has been handled by popular illustrator Taro Minoboshi, who you may know for the Love + series and God Wars: Future Past.

One of its most charming aspects is the setting in Japan’s Shimane prefecture, which is a less-traveled area with plenty of local charm.

The developers have gone to great lengths to reproduce not only the places but also many local people, who have turned into characters for the game.

At the moment, we don’t know how or when the series will continue, but the fact that Kadokawa Games still releases news about it is certainly encouraging.
