Root Letter: Last Answer is an upcoming enhanced edition to 2016 mystery visual novel where the player is tasked with uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of a young girl 15 years earlier. Ahead of it’s release, PQube and Kadokawa Games have released a new trailer showcase the interactive aspects of the game.



The trailer shows a lot of what you would likely expect to see. Looking for clues, interacting with characters/suspects, ect. However it also seems to display multiple aesthetic choices, like the ability to switch from the hand drawn anime style, or pictures of live-action actors.

In addition to the trailer it was also announced that there would be a special Day One Edition, which would include a 100 page artbook featuring previously unreleased images.
