The Square Enix Mystery Game That Was Featured At The Japanese Nintendo Direct But We Didn’t See Here

The Japanese Nintendo Direct has once again left a surprise in the territory, like the other time. A Square Enix mystery game that was presented there, but that we did not see in our territory.

It is called The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story and it is a live-action mystery and adventure that will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC (Steam) on May 12 worldwide.

First of all, we leave you with the trailer in Japanese so that you can put yourselves in the situation of what this The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story can give us.

This is the information that has left Square Enix itself in the announcement: “Directed by Koichiro Ito (Metal Gears Solid V: The Phantom Pain) and produced by Junichi Ehara (NieR: Automara).

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story revolves around the disgraced Shijima family, who have suffered a series of unexplained deaths over the last century“.

As the player, you will need to take the role of mystery novelist Haruka Kagami and use her powers of deduction to discover the truth. There have been four murders in the Shijima house over the past hundred years.

Yasuhito Tachibana, producer at Netflix on The Naked Director, will serve as cinematographer and set director. An authentic traditional Japanese story that will transcend time through different era of Japan.

With the interpretations of Nanami Sakuraba as the protagonist and Yuta Hiraoka as Eiji Shijima, the second son of the Shijima family. “It’s a mystery game that we’ve put all our efforts into, after several fine-tuning,” said its producer Junichi Ehara.

An intricate story, a gaming experience where you’ll use reasoning powers to uncover the culprit and the secret behind multiple murder cases…“.

These are the best gaming routers

Gaming has very particular requirements in terms of connection. So it is surely a good idea to bet on a gaming router.
