'London Detective Mysteria' (ALL) Announced - Screens

by Rainier on June 22, 2018 @ 11:31 a.m. PDT

Eschew the frivolities of 19th century London's high society and instead delve into the curiosities that lie hidden in London’s darkest corners in the visual novel London Detective Mysteria.

Playing as the heiress of House Whiteley, players will name their own Lady Whiteley as they investigate mysteries of London and interact with personalities inspired by famous fictional characters including Detective Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and more.

Take full control over the experience by adjusting text speed or even the individual speaking volumes of individual characters and their original Japanese voices.

Players must choose their words carefully as they interact with other characters, as decisions made throughout the story will not only affect special rewards but will also shape whether Lady Whiteley finds love or something more sinister in the shadows of 19th century London.


The publisher will be showing off the first playable version of the game in the west during Anime Expo 2018 from July 5 – 8 in Los Angeles, where they will also be hosting an 18+ localization panel on Friday, July 6 at 8:30PM in room WS2/406AB.

In addition to showing off London Detective Mysteria, XSEED Games will have their full E3 lineup of games available for hands-on demos including Fate/EXTELLA Link, Freedom Planet, Gungrave VR, Gal Metal, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, and SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal, plus all sorts of goodies available for sale at their booth. Attendees interested in what goes on behind the scenes with game localization can attend the XSEED Games Localization Panel (18+) taking place at 8:30PM on Friday, July 6 in room WS2/406AB to hear localization staff talk about current projects. Be sure to stay until the end for a Q&A and raffle.

XSEED Games will be located in the South Hall, Booth #4111.

Originally released in Japan as Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown, XSEED Games is bringing London Detective Mysteria to Vits and PC as digital download in fall 2018.

Fate/Extella Link [Vita/PS4 - Winter 2018]

Picking up where the story ended in Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, Fate/EXTELLA LINK expands the roster of playable Servants with 10 legendary heroes added to the original selection of 16. These newly added Servants hail from other entries in the Fate series and include the likes of Astolfo, Scàthach, and Francis Drake. The high-speed action gameplay of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star returns with improved visuals and new battle mechanics in both single-player and an added multiplayer mode supporting 4-on-4 online battles on PlayStation®4 system. Players will also be able to move freely around their new base camp—a medieval cathedral suspended in the sky—and interact with Servants to build bonds with them.

Gungrave VR [PlayStation VR - Fall 2018]

In Gungrave VR, players take control of Grave with his iconic set of dual guns, Cerberus, and will have to master different playstyles to take down the various foes that stand in his way. Levels consist either of free-moving third-person gameplay or first-person action that includes both stationary and mobile sections, offering players a variety of modes to help put them in the shoes of the resurrected Millennion agent himself. With an array of shooting attacks, close-range strikes using Grave’s coffin, Bullet Time, and more, Gungrave VR brings an authentic Gungrave experience to virtual reality for the very first time.

Gal Metal [Nintendo Switch - Fall 2018]

Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns each Joy-Con into a drum stick. Players will take hold of the Joy-Cons to rock along with the music as they create their own complex performances and rack up millions of points using personal free-form drum lines based on over a dozen different beats. With Nintendo Switch Pro Controller support on offer as well, players will be able to choose how they want to jam and earn metal power to use against nefarious alien invaders in this uniquely adlib-friendly rhythm experience.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin [PS4/PC]

In Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, players take on the role of Sakuna, a proud yet lonely harvest goddess who is banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans. Sakuna tames the island by defeating demons using farm tools as weapons while also making ample use of her “celestial scarf,” a magical item that allows her to grapple distant enemies and platforms. Along the way, she establishes a home in a mountain village, which serves as a base of operations for crafting weapons and cooking food. Additionally, as a harvest goddess, she grows rice by following a detailed process that encompasses everything from planting to harvesting. Through this process, across each of the four seasons, she’s able to improve the harvest and hone her battle skills alike.

Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal [PS4/PC - Fall 2018]

SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal brings the original Nintendo 3DS release’s classic 2.5D action to modern hardware with a full 3D remake and a fresh retelling of the tale that started it all. This fast-paced brawler will provide updated combat mechanics and character models, as well as the new Burst mode for a voluptuous visual feast! The series’ popular Dressing Room mode continues to see expansion too, with a wealth of new outfits and options that allow players to customize their favorite girls’ looks and styles. With additional DLC episodes that will reveal new details of Yumi and Miyabi’s histories prior to meeting Asuka and Homura, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal delivers an authentic recreation of the original game while ensuring that series fans will have plenty of new content to look forward to!

Freedom Planet [Nintendo Switch - Fall 2018]

Freedom Planet is a fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There's trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, nonlinear stages. The campaign may be played through as Lilac, Carol, or the unlockable Milla, each of whom has completely unique gameplay mechanics, an altered story mode in which the selected character takes the lead, and even a few of her own unique stages.
