Root Film

PQube have announced that Root Film will be released in Q1 2021 in Europe and North America. It’s also getting a Limited Edition (Rice Digital exclusive), including a 100-page artbook (environmental scenery, detailed character illustrations and more).

And here’s the latest set of details, the list of key features, and some screenshots (in Japanese):

Set in the Shimane prefecture, Root Film is based around the reboot of a mysteriously cancelled TV series “Shimane Mystery Drama Project”. Take the role of 23-year-old Rintaro Yagumo as his excitement for an amazing casting opportunity is quickly curbed, when a horrible murder interrupts their location scouting process.  Follow him and a cast of memorable characters illustrated by character designer Taro Minaboshi as they are drawn deeper into the thrilling mystery of Root Film.

Root Film blends the masterful storytelling Kadokawa Games is known for with newly built upon interactive features.

  • Become your own detective – The Intuition mechanic allows players to acquire keywords during in-game conversations. Once activated, Intuition reveals words on screen that are essential to investigations and confrontations.
  • Max Mode – After collecting enough keywords, you can confront suspects in Max Mode to resolve a mystery. In this fighting-game like face-off, it is essential that enough evidence has been collected beforehand to choose the correct conversation options from a selection screen.
  • More than one side to a story… – Experiment with the ‘zapping’ mechanic to reveal the perspective of two characters at the same time. Experiencing events from two different viewpoints is an essential tool to find out the truth about “Shimane Mystery Drama Project”!
