Aksys Games have announced at their Anime Expo 2018 panel that they are localising the Experience Inc. horror visual novel Death Mark (known as Shiin in Japan) for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PS Vita. The game will release in North America and Europe, however no release window has been announced.

The countdown to «death» had already begun…
