Nippon Ichi Software has released the teaser trailer, and first details and screenshots for Jinrui no Minasama he, or To All of Mankind, its Akihabara-set, all-girls survival adventure game developed by Acquire.
Get the details below.
When I woke up, I was in a hotel room in Akihabara.
“Oh right, we came to Akihabara together to go sightseeing.”
We slept in late, but now we’re gonna go explore the town and eat delicious food… that’s right! Just thinking about it is getting me excited…!
Everyone else is awake, too, so let’s get going to Akiba! To Akihabara!
—Huh…? Was Akihabara always like this…?
The “Akihbara” that spread out before us was a town somehow extremely ruined.
Vegetation has run wild, the town is desolate, and there are no signs of human life at all—.
Where did everyone go? Akihabara had “this sort of feeling”…?
I don’t know what happened, but I’ll enjoy my trip with everyone for the time being!
Kyouka Shintou (voiced by Mana Satou)
The always smiling and energetic mood maker, who is full of expressions and emotions. She can be somewhat clumsy at times, but that is part of her charm.
She loves her grandma and is a fan of anime. She prefers reading manga over difficult books. While living in Akihabara, she will occasionally show her otaku side, but also let loose some grandma-like wisdom from time to time.
She is the protagonist of this story.
Isana Shouni (voiced by Yukino Tsubaki)
She is like a mother to the group. She is serious and firm, but as a result of overt seriousness, her worries never end…
She even worries about her motherly position, and is trying her best to break free of that role.
An excellent cook, she indulges everyone who says, “Even while living in Akihabara, we want to eat tasty food!”
Erina Kashi (voiced by Nanahira)
At first glance she may seem lazy, but she is actually an all-rounder who can play both the funny man and the straight man. Since she only tends to say half-hearted things with a serious look on her face, those around her are often under her thumb. However, she is a no frills girl who acts the same around everyone, so things like that are forgiven.
She is a major gamer, and while living in an Akihabara where games are out of reach, her only concern is not getting her smartphone game login bonuses…
Kazumi Komatsu (voiced by Sana Hoshimori)
A girl is no less energetic and cheerful than Kyouka. She says what she thinks and lives a carefree life in which she relies on her instincts. She is a straightforward girl who always says things to encourage everyone.
An active girl, she is confident in her physical strength. If Isana is the mother to the group, then Kazumi is the older sister, as well as an indication of whether the group is doing alright or not.
Yuyuko Oura (voiced by Mina Nakazawa)
A quarter French girl distinguished by her soft hair. She has a big thirst for knowledge and loves reading books. As such, she has a good head on her shoulders and is like a walking dictionary, rescuing the group in tight situations with all sorts of knowledge.
She addresses everyone with “san” at the end of their names, and is for some reason very shy and distant, but on occasion will open her heart and blend in with the group. She behaves rationally, but genuinely expresses emotions such as happiness and enjoyment.
First, check the everyday necessities!
A ruined Akihabara without any other humans in sight is laid out before you, where the girls are forced to live a life of survival. First, explore the hotel and town to see what is already there and what is needed.
The hotel that the girls are staying at. While there is no sign of other humans, the kitchen is equipped with cup ramen, an induction heater, and a full set of other cooking utensils. If you have the ingredients for it, you might be able to cook something.
The Streets of Akihabara
The streets of Akihabara are covered in greenery everywhere the eye can see. Even the scenery of Akihabara’s familiar main street, “Chuo-Dori,” has a different appearance about it. Was the atmosphere of the “Akihabara Station” entrance always like this…?
◆ Exploration Spots
Akihabara has many names—“sacred land of the otaku,” “Electric Town,” the list goes on. But even in its ruined state, there are remnants of the Akihabara that everyone remembers. Explore the town and make full use of its huge dungeons.
Even familiar buildings have become another thing entirely, covered in ivy and grass. And not just their exteriors, their interiors are also covered in grass, and in most shops it does not seem like you can go higher than the second floor.
“How do you start a fire?” “Is that edible?” In times of question, you can gather all sorts of information at the Doujin Shop.
◆ Survival Life
Field work in the middle of a city!?
While they are only five girls, in a town where the greenery has overgrown and buildings are covered in vines, physical labor is necessary. The meal after a day of building up sweat is sure to be twice as good as normal!
It seems that seeds will become vegetables if properly grown. But how will you plow the field in a ruined town…?
While the theme of “nature” is not strong in Akihabara, you can go fishing in Kanda River.
Hints in Your Surroundings?
By exploring the city and obtaining useful tools from the mountain of rubble, you will be able to do more and more. That includes starting fires, going fishing, catching wild animals, and more. While tools can be used standalone, they can also sometimes be combined. There may be hints closer than you think in your surroundings, and you may be able to do things you would not normally have imagined.
◆ Enjoy a communal life in Akihabara!
To All of Mankind is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on May 30 in Japan.
