This time around, Seasons 1 to 7 have received major upgrades. While the game and presentation have been greatly enhanced, the dialogue and story have received new content as well, making this a true and worthy remake. We have plans to release this exciting remake on the PlayStation4 and Xbox One in the future as well, so stay tuned!
In the serialized version of Game Magazine, the game and its presentation were heavily restricted due to the limitations of RPG Maker’s optimization on smartphones. However, say goodbye to all of those restrictions because this time around, the console version of the game has not only been freed from the restrictions, but also has been greatly enhanced. In terms of gaming experience, we are happy to announce that we have taken the original feel and re-conceptualized it for the controller. We hope this provides a satisfying gaming experience for everyone.
On the other hand, based on the serialized version which has already reached its final chapter, we have delved into the characters’ dialogues and updated their stories to allow for a deeper immersion. This allows for veterans of the game to enjoy a refreshed story and first-timers to dive into the expansive world of Noel the Mortal Fate.
In the Nintendo Switch version of Noel the Mortal Fate, a cutscene animation with the theme song plays after you launch the game. The theme song “Gyakkoudoumei” was written by Jin, who is famous for his work on Kagerou Project. The cutscene animation was directed by Makoto Sanada, author of Angels of Death, and has been quite active in the freeware gaming industry like Kawano. As a fellow individual game developer, he draws the meaning of the Gyakkoudoumei lyrics and expresses his worldview with the various expressive movements.
Noel, a young girl with professional pianists for parents, fails to win the grand prize in the piano competition held in the city of Lhaplus, and subsequently misses out on being selected for the honorable position of “memorial ceremony pianist”, sending her into a deep depression. She hears from Mayor Burrows that there were irregularities in the selection process, and under his direction she heads to an abandoned building. There, after summoning the devil Caron and entering into a “contract” to become the “true memorial ceremony pianist”, Noel loses her arms and legs as part of said contract. Almost frozen to death and saved by Caron, Noel is consumed with rage from being used by Burrows and agrees to join forces with Caron to exact her revenge on the conniving mayor. The pair head off to take down Burrows, facing all sorts of dangers and trials along the way.
