Nippon Ichi Announces Iwaihime: Matsuri for PS4 and Vita

Do you want to see more visual novels on the PS4 and Vita? Are you looking for a game that can genuinely frighten you? If so, you’re in luck. Nippon Ichi recently released a trailer for Iwaihime: Matsuri, a story of dolls, death, and destiny.

The horror visual novel was written by Ryukishi07, the creator of the popular When They Cry series. Ryukishi07 is a master of the macabre, and his titles are disturbing and delightful.

If you’ve been paying attention to Nippon Ichi’s creepy game teasers, you might think that this is the mysterious new title they’ve been hinting at. However, Iwaihime: Matsuri isn’t a new game at all. It’s an enhanced port of Iwaihime, which made its PC debut back in 2016.  This version of the game contains a brand-new prologue, but the stories and gameplay are the same.

Still, if you’re a fan of spooky stories, Iwaihime: Matsuri is something to look forward to. Nippon Ichi hasn’t announced an English-language release  for the game yet, but previous Ryukishi07 titles have made it to the west.
