Remake of Suda51's "The Silver Case" Launches in April
Physical and digital release dated for North America and Europe
NIS America is bringing the PlayStation 4 remake of Suda51's The Silver Case adventure game to the west, and now we have official launch dates. The game will be available physically and digitally in North America on April 18, followed by Europe on April 21.
As tends to be the case, NIS America has a limited edition up for pre-order along with the standard edition. Here's what you'll get in it:
1999 - the "24 Wards." A string of mysterious serial killings plagues the city.
The detectives of the 24 Wards Heinous Crimes Unit have their eyes on one man: Kamui Uehara, legendary serial killer and assassin of a number of government officials 20 years prior in the now famous "Silver Case."
However, nobody knows who—or what—Kamui really is.
Has he really returned? Who is this infamous serial killer?
As the player, you will take control of the protagonist—a member of the Special Forces Unit known as “Republic”—from a first-person perspective. Inspired by classic adventure and visual novel-style games, The Silver Case offers a fresh and unique gameplay experience as it leads the player through an in depth story containing various puzzles, and uncovering the truth piece by piece.
