3D action / point-and-click adventure game Kwaidan: Azuma Manor Story coming west in December

Set in the early days of Japan's Showa era.

Kwaidan: Azuma Manor Story

Kwaidan: Azuma Manor Story, which first launched for PlayStation 4 in June 2018 in Japan, is coming west for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in December, publisher Mediascape and developer Gudouan announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

The stage of this work is Japan of the 1930s.

Explore the mysterious Azuma Manor and do battle with the Yoki that lurk within, all while solving devilishly clever mechanical puzzles.

Kwaidan offers a seamless merging of 3D action and point-and-click adventure game elements, allowing for a truly unique play experience. Players move and fight through the world in 3D, but can call up a cursor to examine points of interest at any time. The result is an action-adventure unlike any other.

In sharp contrast to recent action games, which seek to deliver player satisfaction above all else, Kwaidan was designed from the ground up to deliver highwire suspense from beginning to end. Nightmarish Yoki and fiendishly clever puzzles obstruct your path through the manor, but overcome these obstacles, and a profound sense of catharsis awaits.

Enjoy retro polygon graphics that evoke classic games of the early 2000s, with film-reel-style presentation that transports players to a secluded mountain manor from the earliest days of Japan’s Showa era.
