Today Spike Chunsoft released the second character trailer of the Western localization of Mages' visual novel Anonymous;Code.
The trailer focuses on introducing two of the characters that we'll meet in the game, Cross Yumikawa and Wind Maki. We also get a sample of their English voice-overs performed by Y. Chang and AJ Beckles. Albeit you won't hear them in this trailer, the Japanese track features the popular Tomokazu Sugita (Yusuke Kitagawa in Persona 5) and Hiroyuki Takanaka.
Of course, Japanese voices will be included in the Western release if that's your preference. You can check the trailer out below.
You may have noticed that the headline mentions "Science Adventure" which is a franchise of visual novels including the well-known Steins;Gate. More examples are Chaos;Head Noah, Chaos;Child, and Robotics;Notes. Basically, if it has a semicolon in the title, it's a Science Adventure visual novel.
Anonymous;Code is the latest of the franchise, produced by Chiyomaru Shikura himself. It was released in Japan last year after many, many delays. The game was originally scheduled to launch on PS Vita and it was announced a whole eight years ago in 2015. At some point, many fans simply lost hope, but ultimately Mages has managed to deliver. Now we're getting a localized version, which is likely much more than most expected.
Anonymous;Code will launch in North America and Europe on September 8, 2023, for PC via Steam, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
