Japanese game publisher Sekai Project announced plans to release several new titles at this past weekend's Anime Expo 2017 in Los Angeles.
The new announcements begin with NarKarma EngineA, an adventure in which the player becomes both the hero and the final villain. Here's what Sekai Project says about the newly-unveiled game"
Deep beneath the crust dwells a race of humanoid machines and in the strata dividing them, dreams of the dead conjure up phantoms of eras long lost to time. Traversing these forgotten realms, beast and machine cross paths, bringing upon both the threat of extinction. But only one will make it through alive.
NarKarma EngineA takes the player into a world of beasts and mechanical mystery, fusing tabletop role playing gaming with the suspense and intrigue of Keika Hanada's script and the striking illustrations of artist Kanemune. With multiple routes to explore and several characters to develop, NarKarma EngineA is surely a game you don't want to miss.
The company also announced Rewrite+. This game takes places in the far away in the city of Kazamatsuri where forestation and floriculture has caused the city to become panorama of trees, flowers, and plants. In this maze of greens and flora, there is still modern civilization found deep within, one which has grown accustomed to this new normal, and found a balance between the modern cityscape and the nostalgic outdoors.
This is where Kotarou Tennouji finds himself gifted with the ability to “rewrite” any part of his body to increase his strength and speed. Along with the occult society at his academy, Akane Senri , Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Lucia Konohana and Sizuru Nakatsu, Tennouji finds himself drawn to the mysteries of Kazamatsuri and seeks out answers, friendship, love and conflict in an ever evolving world around him.
Dracu-Riot! from developer Yuzusoft is also on the calender. This game takes place in a specially zoned part of Japan is the island city of Aqua Eden. It's a place where gambling and other underground activities were sanctioned. On a mission to seek out romance in his life, Mutsura Yuuto accompanies his friend to this island to enjoy a nice vacation in Aqua Eden. These plans get disrupted, however, as Yuuto witnesses a kidnapping. Unable to simply turn a blind eye, he gets involved and somehow gets turned into a vampire. Now a member of the undead, Yuuto is unable to leave and ends up having to live on the island. This, though, is only the start of his story.
Also from devloper Yuzusoft is Banka, a game that Sekai Project says is bursting with comedy and color. Here's what else the company says about it:
Deep in the mountain range, there exist a small village by the name Hoori. Secluded from civilization and unreachable by modern transport, the village can be interpreted as stuck far in the past. But it is this fact that has caused Hoori to become a hot spring paradise for the willing tourist. Among the springs and sights that enriches the rural town, a legendary katana is embedded in stone, spawning myths and legends for centuries; Murasamemaru. None have yet been able to wake the sword from its slumber and wield it as its new master.
That is, until Arichi Masaomi came along and broke the darn thing!
Not only that, but with this unforeseen set of events, the young man finds himself forced to take responsibility, responsibility in the form of marriage. His fiancé, a mysterious young woman, causes further chaos into Masaomi’s wife. With Murasamemaru in his hand, it seems that his life will never be the same again.
Proving that game titles don't have to be short and sweet, Sekai Project added Ninja Girl and the Mysterious Army of Urban Legend Monsters ~Hunt of the Headless Horseman~ to the list.
The game takes plance in present day America. Kiri Hattori and Mary run a little Japanese café in the heart of a city suburb. During the day, these beautiful girls lead a shy life of cookies and tea, but during the night, they become hunters donned in ninja apparel. It just so happens that Kiri is descendant from ninja royalty, and Mary, well, she is a ghost. It seems that this world is not so normal upon a closer look. In this world, Dark Beings inhabit the night and threaten the life and safety of those who comes close to their wrath.
In short, the game brings urban legend, monsters comedy, busty ninjas, and headless men all together in this awesome romp of action.
Mawari Works' Eternal also joins the announcement list. To be published by Sekai Project, the game is promised as more than a visual novel (but not quite an anime). With a top-tier roster of anime studio talent behind the scenes, the game has over 2000 unique cuts and images across six routes leading to a wide range of events and cinematic experiences. A battle of religion, magic girls and delusion is set to take place. This game is expected to come out next year.
As if all of the above wasn't enough, Sekai Project mentioned plans to release Nanairo Reincarnation.
The summer heat is burning, as Kagami Makoto makes his way through his 3rd [year] of college. While preoccupied with his studies, Kagami inherits his late grandfather’s house and makes the decision to live on his own given the circumstances. However, he is soon to discover that there lives a pair of young women in this house, Iyo and Kikyou, neither of whom cast a reflection and neither seems to be even visible to anyone but Kagami! This is actually due to Kagami possessing a skill known as reisha, an astral vision allowing him to see young girls who claim to be spirits. It turns out that Kagami did not inherit just a house, he also inherited a duty, a duty to serve and protect the many spirits that roam this town and guide them peacefully into their eternal sleep.
Inheriting a generations old duty, Kagami must make peace with this newfound responsibility an figure out his life, as he takes on the honor of the Kagami family lineage. But before he can get settled and come to terms with this revelation, an incident occurs that rocks the little spirit town to its core.
From developer Silky's Plus Alpha, Nanairo Reincarnation takes an unlikely hero and thrust him into a world full of unknown. Players can enjoy multiple endings and scenarios as Kagami's adventure unfolds.
Finally, Sekai Project concluded the list with Island Diary.
Developed by Watakubi, the game takes place on an isolate island. It's a distant tropical wonder serves as home to the bear eared girl Momo. Despite the beautiful scenery in this seemingly idyllic paradise, she still experiences a sense of loneliness, as her only friends on this island are the cat eared Kuro and the rabbit eared Moka, however they have slowly been drifting apart from one another due to the existence of a certain diary. But one day, a young man wash ashore, unable to recall any detail of his past beyond his name thanks to a few of his belongings being with him. Momo discovers Ryou in his daze as he wakes up on the beach unable to grasp how he ended up in this strange little paradise, and with her help begins to shape together what is now to become his new life.
