On Thursday, MyDearest, Inc. revealed their exciting plans to release a highly-anticipated collaboration with IzanagiGames – the stunning virtual reality game, DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate, for Nintendo Switch. This extraordinary release, titled DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate – Definitive Edition, is set to hit digital shelves worldwide on November 22. This comprehensive package will encompass all three gripping episodes, along with exclusive content tailored for the Nintendo Switch platform. It’s important to note that this version will not require virtual reality equipment.
The journey of DYSCHRONIA began with the debut of its first episode on the PlayStation VR2, the cutting-edge virtual reality system designed for the PlayStation 5 console, and the Meta Quest 2 in September 2022. Following this, the game’s second episode was unveiled in December 2022. Remarkably, the initial two episodes coincided with the launch of the PSVR2 on February 22. The grand finale arrived with the third and conclusive chapter, which was unleashed to the world on July 13.
IzanagiGames also treated fans to an enticing trailer, building up anticipation for this extraordinary gaming experience. Shōya Chiba takes on the role of Hal Scion, the lead character in the Japanese rendition of the game. Joining him in the cast are several other talented individuals:
- Junichi Suwabe as Keith Tozaki
- Azumi Waki as Maia Ganette
- Ai Fairouz as Systelia
- Yū Serizawa as Airi Clover
- Yūto Uemura as Noel Ganette
- Akari Kitō as Lily
- Yūsuke Kobayashi as Ash Shepherd
- Sho Hayami as Albert Rumford
- Yui Ishikawa as Elaine Cordia
The game offers both an English dub and English subtitles, with Jesse Inocalla taking on the role of Hal Scion in the English dub.
MyDearest and IzanagiGames present the narrative as follows:
Within this serene, man-made marine city, dreams serve as the primary means to preemptively thwart any criminal activity. However, the visionary founder of this so-called utopia meets a demise in an unprecedented and ostensibly impossible occurrence.
Assume the role of the Special Supervisor assigned to this extraordinary case and unravel the enigma that shrouds it. Why was the Professor ruthlessly murdered? What mysteries lie beneath the surface of this seemingly flawless metropolis?
For 12 long years, the Clocktower has remained dormant. But when the closing bell tolls, the commencement of the final seven days is imminent.
Remarkably, the game’s Campfire crowdfunding campaign achieved its goal of 4 million yen (approximately US$35,000) within just four minutes of its October 2021 launch.
This captivating tale unfolds within the expansive “Chronos Universe,” the very setting that encompasses the company’s previous creations, ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos and TOKYO CHRONOS.
