NIS America has announced at its annual press event that they will bring Yomawari: Night Alone to the PS Vita in North America and Europe in late 2016.
In Yomawari: Night Alone, a young girl is walking her dog Poro around town at dusk when a tragic accident forces her to return home with only Poro’s leash in hand. The girl’s sister commands her to stay home while she goes out into the night to search for the dog. Time passes. Growing impatient, the girl decides to search for her missing sister and dog herself.
But when she steps foot outside, she realizes that this is not the same town. The darkness has made the town unfamiliar, and she appears to be utterly alone… save for the spirits that stalk her. The girl must hide from, outsmart, or outrun the hunting spirits while she searches for clues to find her loved ones.
- Nightmarish Open World
Explore the depths of the young girl’s hometown, filled with an unnerving atmosphere reminiscent of Japanese horror. Traverse its run-down school, graveyards, vacant factory, forest, and more.
- Unlock The Mystery
Equipped with only a flashlight, you must guide the young girl and help uncover the mystery behind the darkness that covers her once-peaceful hometown. Search for hidden items, add them to your collection, and use them to interact with spirts or to unlock new story events.
- Spiritual Interaction
In each chapter of the game, you will encounter spiritual creatures inspired by Japanese urban legends who lurk in the shadows – but are they harmless, purely evil, or simply misunderstood?
- Stealth Action
Avoid evil spirits by tip-toeing away, sprinting away, taking cover in a bush, or by using items to distract them. But be careful – some evil spirits may surprise you with their considerable speed.
