Update 7:15 a.m.: World End Syndrome is a love adventure game. It is set in a sea town called “Mihate-chou,” which is situated in a cove, where the protagonist moves and meets the heroines:

  • Maimi Kusunose (voiced by Hisako Tojo) – The protagonist’s cousin. She is a cheerful and lively, somewhat ill-mannered girl. In an unexpected turn of events, she ends up living under the same roof as the protagonist. She is a member of the tennis club, and is popular among both guys and girls.
  • Miu Amana (voiced by Shiori Izawa) – A mysterious and silent girl. She is somewhat isolated from those around her. She is the director of the “Mys. Research”

World End Syndrome will launch in Japan in 2018. Development is currently 80 percent complete.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
