√Letter Last Answer: western release announced, out this year

Earlier this month, √Letter Last Answer popped up on the website of the Australian Classification Board, confirming that a western release was in the works. And today, merely a few days after that listing popped up, PQube confirmed that √Letter Last Answer ais heading coming to Europe and North America, later this year.

For those of you who missed our previous posts about the game, it’s an enhanced version of the Visual Novel (which has now sold over 500 000 units in the west), featuring a new epilogue, gameplay improvements, and a brand new live action mode.

Here’s a trailer:

And here’s some more details about the game, the list of key features, and some screenshots:

15 years have passed since your correspondence with your pen friend Aya Fumino. While you moved on with your life, a confession of murder left in her last letter now resurfaces. Travel to Aya’s hometown and discover what happened to her. Her friends may know the truth but none of them seem willing to let you delve into the past. Are they responsible for her disappearance?

  • A fully interactive experience: Follow the leads given in Aya’s letters to track down her long-time friends. Use your items and the information found during the investigation to make them reveal the truth.
  • Live-action mode: A new way to enjoy the story: Turn on the live-action mode from the title screen at any time in the game to see Shimane’s locations and residents come to life.
  • The complete Root Letter experience: In addition to several UI improvements, Root Letter: Last Answer adds new epilogues that concludes the story around Aya Fumino.
  • Iconic character design and soundtrack: Players who prefer the animated version of the game will enjoy the beautifully detailed artwork by the masterful character designer Minoboshi Taro and the atmospheric soundtrack by composer Takashi Nitta.

√Letter Last Answer (Switch) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
