A remastered version of Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki, Atlus‘ 2004-released adventure / simulation game developed by the now-defunct Shout! Design Works, may be planned for release in 2019 in Japan. The game’s director, Shuuhou Imai, hinted at the announcement in a Facebook post today.
Here is the snippet:
On September 16, Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki celebrated its 14th anniversary. To all the fans who have loved and supported the game, I long-press “Love.” (Editor’s Note: This is a reference to the game’s emotion input system.)
Finally, since it’s the 14th anniversary, I thought about giving some sort of present to the fans, but I couldn’t think of anything at all…
If anything, the most I could say is something like, “Right now you can only play Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki on PS2, as there isn’t even a [PlayStation Network] archive [version], but perhaps next year you’ll be able to play a remaster? Maybe on S and P?” Unfortunately, that’s about it.
It’s not under my management so I can’t speak in detail, but look forward to an official announcement in the near future.
An updated version of Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki called Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki re:charge was released in 2006 in Japan. Visit an archived version of the original game’s official Japanese website here and of the re:charge website here.
