Arc System Works will release the PlayStation 4 version of Kowloon Highschool Chronicle on March 26 in North America for $19.99, the publisher announced. The price of the previously released Switch version will also change to $19.99 on that date.
The PlayStation 4 version of Kowloon Highschool Chronicle already launched both physically and digitally on March 18 in Europe and Japan, but plans for its North American release were not announced. Like the Switch version, it will be a digital-only release in the region.
Here is an overview of the game, via Arc System Works:
Originally released in 2004 on PlayStation 2 as Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki in Japan, Kowloon Highschool Chronicle features remastered graphics, classic first-person dungeon exploration, and a unique conversation system. The PlayStation 4 release published by Arc System Works arrives as a high-definition remastered and ported experience for fans of the classic title. With this interactive gameplay, players make choices that will help them solve puzzles, avoid traps, and fight enemies while joining fellow classmates to solve deep mysteries.
- Revamped Graphics – Bringing the game firmly into the modern era, Kowloon Highschool Chronicle‘s art and graphics have been redone in high-definition and now match the beautiful character designs, challenging gameplay, and compelling story.
- Innovative Conversation System – Players will express themselves in the story through feelings and actions by giving an angry glare, loving touch, or a bizarre lick. How characters in the world view you depends on how straight (or insane) players present themselves.
- Deep, Challenging Gameplay – Players choose from a myriad of different friends, classmates, and allies and brave the darkest of dungeons in search of adventure and untold wealth. Players will need to build their team with care as the enemies and dungeons will present a true challenge and the wrong teammates may lead them to certain doom.
