11.26.04 - 5:34 PM
Idea Factory has announced its fifth PlayStation 2 adventure, titled Tsuki ha Kirisaku: Tantei Sagara Kyouichirou today. As the game's title suggests, the player will assume control over 21-year old third-rate detective Kyouichirou Sagara. His lacking work ethic changes, as a female acquaintance whom he met in a bar the other night, offers him a huge sum to find a certain person. Employing a so-called parallel character system, Tsuki ha Kirisaku will tell its story by combining the protagonist's perspective with those of other characters. Idea Factory furthermore is trying to bring a greater deal of freedom into the usually rather linear adventure genre. After completing the first of the game's five episodes, players can freely choose, which of the three follow episodes they want to play next. Depending on your selection, the appearing sub characters will differ and with them the content of the fifth episode. In addition to his duties as a detective, Kyouichirou however will also get the chance to spend some quality private time with the game's heroines, as a love adventure portion is being implemented. Interface-wise, a map and profiles of all characters the protagonist encounters will be at the player's disposal.
Tsuki ha Kirisaku: Tantei Sagara Kyouichirou will be released in Japan on February 24th. The standard version will be available for 6,800 yen ($66.32 US), while the limited edition will cost 8,800 yen ($85.83 US).
