Visual novel Banshee’s Last Cry will be getting a remake for the Vita. The game was originally released on the Super Famicom under the title Kamaitachi no Yoru (The Night of the Sickle Weasel). It was later released in the West by Aksys Games as Banshee’s Last Cry on mobile devices. No release date or anything other information about the remake has been mentioned. Here’s a description of the plot from Aksys Games’s release for iOS:
“Banshee’s Last Cry is a thrilling visual novel that takes readers on a deadly thrill ride of murder and deception. Set in a snowed in hotel lodge during Christmas, vacationers find themselves caught up in a murderous “whodunit” game when someone winds up dead. Local legend tells of a banshee whose screams can rip through flesh, but, is the killer really a deadly monster or the work of a madman?
An inventive twist on the traditional novel, Banshee’s Last Cry allows readers to make decisions, each unlocking several unique stories and endings. Added to the mix is a soundtrack befitting of a thriller novel and images to set the mood.”
Banshee’s Last Cry will be coming to the PlayStation Vita in Japan. A mobile version on iOS and Android is now available.
