PQube has announced its next localisation project, this time taking on Raging Loop, a cult hit visual novel from Kemco. Based in Japanese mythology and folklore, this VN is a horror-filled tale into a world of spirit guardians and a raging werewolf.
Your goal is to escape a haunted village that you’ve been sucked into, in which every day the one possessed by the wolf spirit kills one person. You play as a young student who finds himself trapped in a village when, staying overnight because his motorbike broke down, he finds himself unable to leave. The red mist has arrived and the feast has begun.
It sounds like the ideal premise for an intense, dark horror experience, and while Kemco has been patchy on its worth with JRPGs in recent years, with PQube deciding to back this one I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say that there’s probably something in it.
The real question is how it will compare to my favourite horror title of all time – Death Note? It’ll be tough to top that one, but from the trailer, it looks like the visuals are on point at least. I’m looking forward to learning more about the game as we get closer to launch, with PQube promising it will be in our hands this year. It will release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
