Aksys Games has recently announced the official launch of 7’scarlet, a new interactive fiction title for the PlayStation Vita. Developed by Otomate (Idea Factory) and Toybox Inc, 7’scarlet is a beautifully interwoven story of suspense, romance, and mystery in which a brave young woman journeys into the unknown to uncover dangerous truths and locate her missing brother. 7’scarlet is one in a trio of otome (interactive fiction) titles coming out in Summer 2018 from Aksys which include an oversized 3” x 4.5” collectible character card set inside the game case. Fans who purchase all three titles can receive an exclusive set of enamel pins.
Shaped like a crescent moon, the remote town of Okunezato is shrouded in dark myths and legends. Following the disappearance of her brother, Ichiko ventures to Okunezato with her childhood friend, Hino. They find the area rife with mystery and populated by intriguing characters, each harboring their own hidden motivations. Encounter heart-racing twists and turns as you dig deeper into the mystery and use your detective skills to solve this challenging interactive puzzle. Players can explore multiple character paths and change the course of the story as it plays out against beautifully illustrated environments with dynamic background effects.
From creepy towns to shadowy mansions and ancient feuds, each of the three “Summer of Mystery” games feature suspenseful storylines and include a premium set of oversized character cards. Customers who purchase either physical or digital copies of the designated titles may email their receipts to get an exclusive set of collector pins. Only 1,000 sets of the enamel collector pins will be made, and are available on a first come, first served basis to US residents only between April 27 and July 31, 2018, or until supplies run out. A small shipping and handling charge will be applied, and pins begin shipping on July 1, not before.
