Hey, NISA, bring Shin Hayarigami 3 out west, please


News by Matt S.

Nippon Ichi over in Japan has announced that Shin Hayarigami 3, the latest in its horror visual novel series will release on July 29, for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. There's no news of a western release just yet, so please do let NISA know that you're interested in playing this one.

Because it's a really good looking game. Based on the concept of urban legends, it taps into a similar sense of horror as Experience Inc's Death Mark and Spirit Hunter: Ng visual novels, and who doesn't like a good urban legend chiller? Especially in Japan. That country is crazy for creepy ghost stories.

I mean, just get a whiff of just one of the stories that you'll get to encounter in this game. It's called "Human Stew," and goes like this: "An old man living alone unfortunately died while bathing in reheated bath water. Days later, when a friend who discovered his corpse touched the old man’s remains, it crumbled and the bathtub became like stew…"

Gross and creepy as heck. There are also stories that feature long-haired women, dolls, a two-headed mummy... yes, Shin Hayarigami 3 could be something very special indeed.

While we wait and hope for a localisation announcement, enjoy the latest trailer:
