Newly announced Shin Yomawari is twice as big as predecessor


I like video games

The hit survival horror game from Nippon Ichi Software,Yomawari: Night Alone, is getting a sequel. Teased yesterday in a 360 YouTube video, NIS announced that Shin Yomawariwill release for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on August 24, 2017 in Japan.

Two young girls named Yui and Haru set out to the mountains to see the neighboring town’s summer fireworks but got separated. You’ll explore a map twice the size of the one in the first Yomawari as you try to reunite the girls.

I never really gave the first one a chance, thinking the simple indie-style art and chibi anime girl would not make for any horror. Nor did I really care all that much for Yume Nikki. Looking at a few minutes of the first on YouTube has changed my mind a bit; it seems there is something there that I may need to give a second look.
