Riddle Joker | Chibi

The wait is finally over for Yuzusoft fans as Riddle Joker finally hits digital stores! After reviewing both Sabbat of the Witch and Senren Banka, I really wanted this one. This is now the third official release from the Yuzusoft-NekoNyan duo. Furthermore it’s another award-winning visual novel making its way out west. To clarify, these are awards for their excellence in music, art and character development. Coupling this with the excellent localizing effort of NekoNyan this is sure to be another one for the ages. I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy, and you should definitely pick yours up. It’s available on Steam, MangaGamer, and FAKKU! Might as well pick it up now and enjoy that special 10% launch discount! As usual, the 18+ patch is free through the publisher. Congratulations NekoNyan!

So what is Riddle Joker about?

For decades, superpowers and psychic abilities were thought to be mere science fiction, but the discovery of a certain particle called the “Astron” at the end of the 20th century proved to the world that these wondrous phenomena were real. Nowadays, these abilities have been dubbed “astral abilities,” with those who can wield them being knows as “Astrals.”

Arihara Satoru is but an ordinary person living in this futuristic world.

However, beneath that guise, he’s actually a secret agent working for an organization that uses Astrals.

One day, he receives a new mission:

Pose as a student and infiltrate a famous academy for Astrals.

After successfully transferring into the academy together with his sister Arihara Nanami, he settles into his new life there, meeting new friends like his classmates Mitsukasa Ayase and Nijouin Hazuki, and his upperclassman Shikibe Mayu, among others.

Until an unfortunate accident leads to Mitsukasa Ayase finding out his true identity! And in that situation, he also learns that she has her own big secret…
