Idea Factory International also released a new batch of screenshots highlighting the game’s real world and investigation elements. Players will jump back and forth between the in-game real world and the virtual online MMORPG “World’s Odyssey” to uncover the mysteries of “World’s Odyssey” and its developer Enigma Games. The real world story will be told through the lens of a visual novel, as the cast assists protagonist Arata in helping his friend Shina escape “World’s Odyssey.”
Additionally, the game’s official website has been updated with character information for Sumika Tokiwa, Natsuo Munakata, Rin Asukaze, and Lydia Nolan. Find their descriptions below.
- Sumika Tokiwa – A coworker of Arata and Shina’s who works as a programmer on a project separate from World’s Odyssey. As soon as she discovers that Shina, whom she considered to be a sister, was stuck inside of W.O.D., she teams up with Arata to extract her.
- Natsuo Munakata – A former employee of Aggle, Inc. who left to begin his own business. While at Aggle, he worked as an account manager, overseeing Enigma Games’ licensing and development with the Alice Engine.
