Death Come True Is A New Mystery FMV Game From The Creator Of Danganronpa
Another patented "Death Game."
Publisher Izanagi Games has announced a new mystery FMV game called Death Come True. Details are sparse at the moment, but the "authentic full-motion video game" is being written and directed by Danganronpa series creator, Kazutaka Kodaka.
The official website teases the game's six-strong cast, and if their clothing is anything to go by, Death Come True hasn't lost any of Kodaka's previous eccentricity in the move to full-motion video. The tagline asks, "Is this a movie or a game? The story starts with your selections," and a countdown ending on December 10 at 12:00 AM PT/3:00 PM ET/8:00 pm GMT promises to reveal the game's lead actor.
It will be interesting to see if Death Come True adopts a similar structure to the Danganronpa series--a host of bizarre visual novels that pits a cast of high school students against an evil bear in a battle royale-esque game of murder. The series is comprised of five core games, but its popularity has also spawned numerous spin-offs and both anime and manga series'.
Death Come True is being developed by Too Kyo Games, a studio Kodaka founded with Zero Escape creator Kotaro Uchikoshi. So far the studio has announced four projects, with 2D platformer Death March Club due out on PC and as-yet-unannounced home consoles in 2020. Death Come True doesn't have a release window yet, nor any announced platforms.
