The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story Coming This May
The game is directed by Koichiro Ito (Metal Gear Solid V) and produced by Junichi Ehera (NieR:Automata).
The story follows the ill-fated Shijima family, who have experienced a chain of inexplicable deaths in their family over the past century. Gamers will take on the role of mystery novelist, Haruka Kagami and use their powers of deductions to uncover the truth behind four murder cases that have taken place in the Shijima household over the last one hundred years.
Producer Junichi Ehara had this to say about the game. “This is a mystery game that we’ve poured our efforts into wholeheartedly, following extensive discussion between the director, Koichiro Ito – who has created a great many adventure games – and Yasuhito Tachibana, of Netflix’s The Naked Director, on the topic of “a live action game, for gamers”. An intricately woven story, a gameplay experience where you use your powers of reasoning to uncover the culprit, and the massive secret that threads together multiple murder cases that occur at different points in time… We’ve entered the last stage of development, with the aim to make it a mystery game that everyone can enjoy. I hope you’ll look forward to the game!”
The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story can be preordered on the Steam store for PC beginning today. Those who purchase the game before May 19, 2022, will receive the base game along with a behind the scenes bonus and mini soundtrack composed by Yuki Hayashi. More pre-order information will be released at a future date.
