PQube have announced that they will bring Kowloon High-School Chronicle to Europe later this year, with both physical and digital release. In North America, it looks like Arc System Works are going to self-publish the game via the Nintendo eShop on February 4th.

Here’s a trailer:

Next, here’s some details about the game:

Kuro Habaki has joined a society of treasure hunters, seeking relics that are said to perform miracles! His next mission takes place at Kamiyoshi High School in Tokyo where mystery surrounds the nearby cemetery and the ruins beneath. Habaki must team up with his classmates to uncover the school’s mysterious secrets.

Here’s some details about the various characters:

  • Koutaro Minakami – Your classmate who is never seen without his lavender aroma pipe. Although he’s always skipping classes and prefers to be alone, Minakami has great reflexes and will be a valuable ally on your adventure.
  • Kasuka Shiraki – This mysterious girl wears chains underneath her school uniform and other students tend to keep their distance. Are the riddles she throws at you the key to solving the mystery of the ruins?
  • Asuka Yachiho – Yachiho is your first friend as a transfer student and belongs to the school tennis club. Always curious, Yachiho loves helping others, though she can be a bit nosy!
  • Tsukumi Nanase – Nanase is the school librarian and takes her work very seriously. Although very reserved and quiet, she gets excited about ancient civilisations and the occult.

Finally, here’s the list of key features, and some screenshots:

  • Communication is Key. At school, choose from nine emotions to interact with your classmates. Depending on your choices, your relationships with these characters will develop, and some may join you on your adventure. There are many wonderful and intriguing characters for you to meet.
  • Dungeon Exploration. After dark, explore the ruins beneath the school for turn-based RPG combat! Solve puzzles, avoid traps and fight monstrous enemies with your classmates to find treasure and solve the mysteries of the ruins.
  • Discover the Classic. Kowloon High-School Chronicle has been remastered with HD graphics and voice acting for the main story. Don’t miss out on this legendary game!
