Otome visual novel London Detective Mysteria coming west for PS Vita, PC this fall

Playable at Anime Expo 2018.

London Detective Mysteria

XSEED Games is bringing Karin Entertainment-developed otome visual novel London Detective Mysteria to North America and Europe for PS Vita and PC as a digital-only title this fall, the company announced.

London Detective Mysteria was originally released as Eikoku Tantei Mysteria for PSP in 2013 in Japan, followed by an enhanced PS Vita version called Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown in 2016.

Here is an overview of the game, via XSEED Games:

Eschew the frivolities of 19th century London’s high society and instead delve into the curiosities that lie hidden in London’s darkest corners in London Detective Mysteria. Playing as the heiress of House Whiteley, players will name their own Lady Whiteley as they investigate mysteries of London and interact with personalities inspired by famous fictional characters including Detective Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and more. Take full control over the experience by adjusting text speed or even the individual speaking volumes of individual characters and their original Japanese voices. Players must choose their words carefully as they interact with other characters, as decisions made throughout the story will not only affect special rewards but will also shape whether Lady Whiteley finds love or something more sinister in the shadows of 19th century London.

London Detective Mysteria will be playable in English for the first time at Anime Expo 2018 from July 5 to 8 in Los Angeles. XSEED Games’ full E3 2018 lineup will also be playable. XSEED Games will also host an “XSEED Games Localization Panel” on July 6 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. PT.
