More info and trailers for the newly-revealed visual novels:
Maitetsu takes place in an alternate reality in Japan, where railroads were the most popular form of travel and transportation. But the difference with these railways is that the trains were paired up with humanoid modules called “Railords.” Due to a popular new form of travel, the railroads were practically forgotten about and eventually, railways were discontinued.
Players will assume the role of Sotetsu, a recent high school graduate who, shortly after entering University, decides to return to his adoptive hometown to save it from water pollution caused by the proliferation of factories. By chance, Sotetsu reawakens “Hachiroku,” a recently decommissioned Railord. He becomes her owner and decides to assist her in finding her missing locomotive, the “8620,” while attempting to save his hometown in the process.
The Companion Star Project is a term from the distant past. With the planet's population rate spiraling out of control and showing no sign of slowing down a small planet was painfully relocated to orbit around the Earth for pioneers to terraform and emigrate to.
Those who stayed behind eventually lost control over the companion star after bloody wars and devastating plagues broke out.
Many years have passed and the companion star, now no longer in orbit, will soon bring about the inevitable destruction of Earth.
Those who know about Earth's impending doom attempted to build shelters, but they did not want the surface world to descend into chaos, so they selfishly took their secret with them underground.
One man who knows about the end decides to live lavishly...and a girl who will turn his life upside down...their story begins when she steps underneath his umbrella.
