PQube and Kadokawa Games have confirmed a release date for Root Film on Nintendo Switch.
This mystery visual novel is about a TV series called Shimane Mystery Drama Project, in a new story from director Hifumi Kono.
Cancelled for an unknown reason 10 years ago, the project is set to be rebooted with three teams that consist of a director and an actress having been cast.
That includes 23-year-old Rintaro Yagumo, who is the game’s main character. His enthusiasm about this new opportunity is soon drained after a horrible murder interrupts their location scouting process.
You must use the Intuition mechanic to reveal keywords during in-game conversations that will be essential to investigations and confrontations. These can then be used in Max Mode to resolve a mystery, with success requiring that you collect enough evidence beforehand.
Root Film will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 19th March 2021.
