This week, we’re getting quite a few Nintendo Switch game announcements from Japanese publishers. On Monday, it was Bandai-Namco with a port of One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 Deluxe Edition. Earlier today, it was Experience with Shiin. And now, it’s World End Syndrome, from Arc System Works and Toybox.
World End Syndrome is a love adventure game, set in a town called Mikamachi, and located in cove. The protagonists moves there (presumably, the game starts right after he’s moved… that’s always how it goes in those stories!), and ends up meeting the various heroines.
Here’s two of them:
- Maimi Kususe (voiced by Hisako Tojo): the protagonist’s cousin, and a cheerful, lively, but somewhat ill-mannered girl. She’s a member of the tennis club, and is pretty popular among boys and girls alike;
- Haruka Kanna (voiced by Shiori Izawa): a mysterious and silent girl, isolated from those around her. She’s at the end of the Miss Research club.
Wondering who’s working on this game at Toybox? Here’s a few names:
- Tomio Kanazawa: scenario
- Yuuki Katou: character design
- Niita Takashi: music
- Koya Takahashi,: backgrounds, cutscenes
According to Dengeki PlayStation, development is 80% complete.
