The HD remaster of The Silver Case, a bizarre adventure game that was one of Goichi Suda's earliest titles and has been recently released on PC, will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe both physically and digitally in early 2017. NIS America will be bringing the title over in the West, while Grasshopper Manufacture will be publishing the PS4 version in Japan. Below, you can find an official announcement trailer, as well as a synopsis of the game. Be sure to stay tuned to RPGFan for more coverage of The Silver Case.

1999 the "24 Wards". A string of mysterious serial killings plagues the city.

The detectives of the 24 Wards Heinous Crimes Unit have their eyes on one man: Kamui Uehara, legendary serial killer and assassin of a number of government officials 20 years prior in the now-famous "Silver Case". However, nobody knows who — or what — Kamui really is.

Has he really returned? Who is this infamous serial killer?

As player, you will take control of the protagonist a member of the Special Forces Unit known as "Republic" — from a first-person perspective. Inspired by classic adventure and visual novel-style games, The Silver Case offers a fresh and unique gameplay experience as it leads the player through an in-depth story containing various puzzles, uncovering the truth piece by piece.

The Silver Case was the debut game from developer Suda 51, creator of titles such as Flower, Sun and Rain, Killer 7, the No More Heroes series, Lollipop Chainsaw and most recently Let It Die. The Silver Case HD Remaster is the new and improved version of Grasshopper Manufacture Inc.'s maiden title.

The game will be fully remastered while still retaining the same feel and atmosphere of the original PSX version from 1999. It will also be fully localized into English for the first time ever, finally giving Suda 51 fans throughout the world the chance to enjoy The Silver Case.
