The Silver Case will launch for PlayStation 4 on April 18 in North America and April 21 in Europe as both a physical and digital release, publisher NIS America announced.
The Grasshopper Manufacture-developed title is a high-definition remaster of the debut game from Goichi “Suda 51” Suda, creator of titles such as Flower, Sun and Rain, Killer7, No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, and Let It Die.
Here’s an overveiew of the game, via NIS America:
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 the 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, and uncovering the truth piece by piece.
