This week’s issue of Famitsu has revealed that classic visual novel Eve: Burst Error is coming to PlayStation Vita – chock full of upgrades.

Dubbed Eve: Burst Error R, this new title is an enhanced version of the original 1995 PC visual novel classic and has updated character and event visuals, a new event CG drawn by Nao Tajima, the ability to skip text, and more.

Here’s an example of the “old” versus the “updated” visuals;

As for the plot, here’s the game’s synopsis (via the VNDB);

A Bizarre Serial Murder Mystery. There’s A Serial Killer Close By. A Prohibited Psychothriller. The Multi-Sight System Reveals Surprising Truth!

In this game there are two heroes, Kojiroh and Marina, who are each called to solve their own cases. This game allows you to switch characters at any time to solve the mysteries these heroes encounter. This “Multi-Sight Adventure” allows you to view what’s happening behind-the-scenes from the other character’s perspective, bump into each other, and sometimes even help each other out. Together, they come closer and closer to the shocking truth through their combined actions and skills of deduction.

Marina’s Episode: Marina is a national intelligence agent with a 99% success rate. Her new assignment is to protect the daughter of a Japanese embassy official stationed abroad. As you encounter numerous attackers, you become aware of a dangerous government dispute that is the root of all these attacks.

Kojiroh’s Episode: A seemingly down-on-his-luck private investigator finally gets a break, as he is hired to locate some mysterious piece of art. Even though he feels a little weird about this case, the pay is huge! Yet he may be drawn into an unexpected nightmare involving a string of bizarre murders.


Eve: Burst Error R is set to hit Japan sometime next year, with no news yet on a Western localization.
