Yurukill: The Calumniation Games by Kakegurui Creator Delayed by a Month

Izanagi Game and NIS America announced a delay for the upcoming escape game/bullet hell shoot ’em up hybrid Yurukill: The Calumniation Games.

Today Izanagi Game and NIS America announced a delay for the upcoming escape game/bullet hell shoot ’em up hybrid Yurukill: The Calumniation Games.

The western release date has been shifted to July 5, 2022, for North America, and July 8, 2022, for Europe and Australia. Originally it was on June 7 and June 10 respectively.

The same happened for Japan, with the release date delayed to May 26 from April 14.

The western release will be on PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, while the PC version coming in Japanese remains unconfirmed.

According to the press release, the delay was due to development challenges, and the extra time will be used to meet the fans’ expectations.

A new trailer was also released on Twitter, and you can watch it below.

If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s written by Homura Kawamoto, whom you may know for creating Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler, and by his younger brother, Hikaru Muno.

The character design is by mangaka Hiro Kiyohara, who worked on Valkyria Revolution, while the music is by Yuko Komiyama, known for the Monster Hunter and Mega Man series.

Here’s how the developer describes Yurukill: The Calumniation Games.

Solve Puzzles

Investigate attractions and uncover clues to help solve the puzzles you encounter.

With their sights set on victory, the teams face their attractions in the Yurukill Games. The documents you acquire by solving puzzles are the key to unlocking the secrets behind everything.

Glean hints from helpful conversations there to support the player and ensure even the toughest riddles aren’t an obstacle to enjoying the game.

Maji-kill Time

Lay it all on the line in extreme, life or death cross-examinations!

Executioners can end the life of their Prisoners any time via their Yurukill Passports. With their lives hanging in the balance, Prisoners must face cross-examination at the hands of their Executioners.

Make the correct selections within the time limit and weave through all the obstacles in the conversations!

Yurukill Judgment

Experience the cutting-edge BR (Brain Reality), developed by Yurukill, Inc.

Prisoners and Executioners pilot Yurukill Fighters within the virtual reality generated by the BR. Prisoners must stake their lives on these nail-biting firefights as they seek the truth behind the incidents they stand accused of!

Difficulty can be adjusted for players wishing to focus on the story.

High-Speed Quizzes

Take to the helm of your Yurukill Fighter and delve into the details of your alleged crimes in high-speed quizzes.

As a Prisoner, you’ll be hunted down by a whole host of different foes.

Defeat your assailants, and avoid being gunned down as you try and get through to your Executioner!

Prejudice Synapse

Use the evidence you acquire during the adventure sections to destroy the prejudices lurking in their heads, and free them from the notion that you, the Prisoner, are guilty.

The neuron pathway is a visualization of the route leading to the core of the Executioner’s brain, containing what they perceive as the truth.

Complete the sentences relating to each incident and clear a way through the labyrinth of thoughts.

Boss Battles

Face the Executioners in intense boss battles.

Smash through “Mind Walls” and “Brain Barriers”—the shields that manifest to protect the Executioners’ innermost thoughts—and prove that you’ve been falsely accused!
