New details have been released by Kadokawa Games on their upcoming game Root Letter – which was revealed last week.

In Root Letter you will play the part of Takayuki Nakamura. Takayuki is a 33 year old man living in Tokyo. 15 years ago he had a penpal called Aya Fumino (voiced by Noriko Hidaka). After ten letters Aya stopped replying and Takayuki began to hate her. 15 years later he finds a mysterious 11th letter and heads to Matsue in Shimane Prefecture to find out what happened to her.

From Aya Fumino’s letters she seemed like a kind, compassionate person who was surrounded by lots of friends. After reading the 11th letter your impression of her is completely changed.

To try to find out the truth you turn to the classmates that she wrote about in her letters. For some reason they refuse to talk about Aya so you need to find evidence and question them.

Kousuke Tanaka is a 33 year-old man who works for the Matsue City Council Complaints Department. Through a bit of investigative work you discover that his real identity appears to be “Megane” (Four-Eyes). A friend that Aya wrote about in her letters. It’s up to you to try to find a way to get him to open up about the past.

Root Letter is being released worldwide in 2016. Keep an eye on The Vita Lounge for future updates.
