Today 5pb. released a new trailer of its upcoming visual novel Robotics;Notes DaSH.
That being said, if you haven’t played the original I suggest not to continue reading or even to watch the trailer because it could be considered a spoiler.
Still with me? Great. The trailer shows the series antagonist Kou Kimijima as he basically declares war to the protagonists, in a really, really creepy and villainous way.
If you’re not familiar with the Robotics;Notes series, it’s part of the Science Adventure franchise of visual novels alongside Chaos;Head/Chaos;Child and the more popular Steins;Gate.
There are even points of connection between them since Itaru “Daru” Hashida from Steins;Gate is going to appear in Robotics;Notes DaSH.
The game is set for release for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on Jan 31, 2019.
At the moment a western localization has not been announced, but Spike Chunsoft has teased the possibility of a release for the series earlier this year. We’ll see if that’ll happen. I’d love that because Robotics;Notes is fantastic. The release on PS4 and Switch of Robotics;Notes Elite would be the perfect opportunity to introduce the series to the western audience.
