After almost a year, we have some new information.

Last August, we brought you details of 12 new games from Idea Factory, which had been revealed at the Otomate Party 2015. Th opening movie for one of those titles, a romance visual novel titled 7’scarlet, has today been revealed, giving us a better look at the mysterious title. Check it out below.

The game fits into the otome genre, which relates to games that are targeted towards a female audience. Deadly Premonition producer and Toybox co-founder Tomio Kanazawa is behind this new game, which will release in Japan on July 21st for PS Vita.

Luckily we have been able to have a better understanding of the game, thanks to a translation of the movie from the Visual Novel Database (VNDB).

“I heard the investigation got called off… but if it’s OK with you, do you want to go check out Otonezato?”
“Me? I…”
A miracle called “despair” in a town known as “Otonezato”.
At first glance, it seems like a peaceful town. However, various enigmas and intentions lurk within.
The shadow of your disappeared older brother.
The cage of nature.
The taboo club of Otonezato.
A murder mystery.
Folklore.
The whispered “Legends of the Dead”.
The moonlight will shine upon and reveal the truth of this town.
“I won’t let you go… definitely. Not this time.”

It certainly does sound intense, with a murder mystery thrown in for good measure. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below and keep checking back to the TVL for all the latest on 7’scarlet.
