Hey everybody, Tay here. Aksys Games Localization company has released Chunsoft’s Kamaitachi no Yoru in English on the iTunes App Store. The game costs $3.99 (free download/intro, $3.99 in-app purchase) and has been titled, “Banshee’s Last Cry“. It received a 12+ rating, has an install size of 432 MB, and is available right now! The app’s description reads:
Banshee’s Last Cry is a thrilling visual novel and choose-your-own-adventure story that takes readers on a deadly thrill ride of murder and deception. Set in a snowed in hotel lodge during Christmas, vacationers find themselves caught up in a murderous “whodunit” game when someone winds up dead. Local legend tells of a banshee whose screams can rip through flesh, but, is the killer really a deadly monster or the work of a madman?
An inventive twist on the traditional novel, Banshee’ Last Cry allows readers to make decisions, each unlocking several unique stories and endings. Added to the mix is a soundtrack befitting of a thriller novel and images to set the mood.
(I always enjoy reading the product descriptions of localized visual novels to see how they explain the genre. “Choose-your-own-adventure story… decisions, each unlocking several unique stories and endings… [befitting] soundtrack…” — it’s all very interesting.)
Please consider supporting the spread of VNs to the west by purchasing the game! ANN reports that the game has more than 30 endings.
