The trailer showcases a look at the main characters of the game, beautifully designed by Minoboshi Taro, known for his art featured in LovePlus, God Wars, and LoveR. 

We also get to hear the lovely theme song by idol group i☆Ris. It’s titled “Utakata no Hikari” from the recent album Shall we☆Carnival.

Incidentally, all members of the band play voice roles in the game. 

You can check the video out below.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it’s the follow-up to Root Letter. Here’s a handy description:

Root Film is about a TV series, called “Shimane Mystery Drama Project”, which was canceled for an unknown reason 10 years ago. To reboot the project, three teams consisting of a director and an actress have been cast, including 23-year-old Rintaro Yagumo, the main character of the game.

His excitement about this amazing opportunity is quickly curbed, when a horrible murder interrupts their location scouting process. Follow him and a cast of unique and memorable characters by character designer Taro Minoboshi as they are drawn deeper into the thrilling mystery of Root Film.

Root Film has been announced for PS4 and Nintendo Switch and will release in Japan on July 30, 2020. The western release will come courtesy of PQube Games but doesn’t have a release date besides a generic “2020.”

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
