This new edition of their landmark first release, Republique: Anniversary Edition, brings Republique to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation VR for the very first time, and adds brand new developer commentary tracks revealing new secrets about the game’s whirlwind development process. Republique: Anniversary Edition was originally built for PlayStation 4 along with partner studio, Darkwind Media, and then brought to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation VR by Skymap Games.
Republique is a thrilling and topical stealth-adventure game that explores the perils of government surveillance in the Internet Age. Players receive a call from Hope, a woman trapped inside a mysterious totalitarian state, and must hack into the nation’s elaborate surveillance network to guide her to freedom.
Camouflaj also announced the opening of a new expansion of its company, Camouflaj Holdings, in Japan. The day-to-date operations of Camouflaj Holdings are led by Devil May Cry 5 producer Matt Walker, as well as “localization legend” Alexander O. Smith, whose credits go back to Final Fantasy VIII, the Ace Attorney series, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
“We’re thrilled to be starting a new chapter in Camouflaj’s history with the opening of Camouflaj Holdings here in Japan,” Walker said a in a press release. “Our second base here will strengthen our capability to build high quality, meaningful games on a global scale. Republique: Anniversary Edition‘s arrival on Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation VR are a celebration of the studio’s first decade. I can’t wait for players to discover what we mean when we say we build ‘meaningful games’ by experiencing Republique‘s story, which I believe are even more relevant today than they were when Episode 1 first released back in 2013.”
