NIS America announced during its Press Event 2018 that Suda51’s visual novel adventure game The 25th Ward: The Silver Case will release on March 13 in North America and March 16 in Europe.
Check Out The 25th Ward: The Silver Case’s ‘Characters & Cases’ Trailer:
The trailer shows gameplay from the visual novel that is set five years after the events of its predecessor The Silver Case. In a room of the “Bayside Tower Land” apartment complex, a woman has been found murdered without a clue to the whereabouts of the killer.
Following a series of random events, told over multiple protagonists including the returning character Morishima Tokio, the pieces will fall into place.
The world created by Suda51 is a “Kill the Past” universe, where the world is at the edge of collapse inhabited by anti-heroes and misfits. The 25th Ward: The Silver Case uses the same “Film Window” system introduced in The Silver Case, with new visuals, sounds, and controls.
Additionally, three additional chapters, Black Out, White Out, and Yuki will be added to Correctness and Placebo, which are completely new story scenarios written for this version of the game.

This sets off a series of seemingly random events bridging across multiple protagonists including The Silver Case’s Tokio Morishima. With all viewpoints assembled, a truly shocking pattern emerges…
