Ouka Sabaki coming to PS Vita with new features

PC magistrate visual novel coming to handheld.

Ouka Sabaki Zan

Dramatic Create has announced that it is bringing the February 2017-released PC visual novel Ouka Sabaki to PS Vita as Ouka Sabaki Zan on December 21 in Japan. It will cost 6,900 yen at retail and 5,900 yen digitally.

Here’s an overview of the story, via VNDB:

Shimei took up his post as the new administrator at the Nakamachi magistrate’s office, which had been founded to alleviate the burden on the offices to the north and south. He was followed by his cheerful and hard-working childhood friend Rimu and the strong-minded Sakura, who was dispatched from the Kitamachi magistrate’s office to supervise him.

Shortly after his arrival, a young girl Koume was brought before him on a charge of murder. She was to be sentenced the following day, and if she was found guilty of the alleged crime, she would be sentenced to death. Shimei noticed something suspicious in the recounting of the events and along with Koume’s desperation, he was convinced that she was not guilty.

But who is the true culprit? Will he be able to prove her innocence?

Described as a beautiful girl adventure game featuring reasoning parts where the protagonist and suspects bump heads, and a love story full of affection with charming heroines, players will gather evidence and information as the new magistrate, narrow down the list of suspects, and lead the case to a solution.

The PS Vita version will include a new scenario featuring the appearance of many new characters. Original episodes, graphics, and music are also being added to existing scenarios. Players will also be able to select from the orchestral versions and FM sound source versions of the in-game background music. And touch screen controls are also supported.
