'Maitetsu-Pure Station' Comes To PS4 and Nintendo Switch Soon

Maitetsu-Pure Station is a visual novel game where you follow a young man named Migita Sotetsu who wants to prevent a factory from being built alongside a major river in his hometown.

In Maitetsu, the player is the protagonist, Migita Sotetsu. After hearing that an industrial factory is to possibly be built along a landmark river in his hometown of Ohitoyo, Migita Sotetsu returns home to change the minds of those in charge of the factory proposal. Although half of the town's citizens support the building of such a mill, the other half fear the potential for pollution and contamination of their beloved river.

Recognizing Ohitoyo's budgetary decline over the last few decades, Sotetsu believes that the town requires a system that allows it to be fiscally independent instead of reliant upon a factory to stimulate its economy, and sets out to identify an alternative method in achieving this goal.

It's during this time that Sotetsu comes across an android-like being--a "Raillord" named Hachiroku--while looking through his late adoptive father's belongings. Although inanimate, Hachiroku and Sotetsu forge a deep, unlikely connection, and from this bond, work together in hopes of restoring Ohitoyo to its former glory.

Already available on PC (Steam), Maitetsu-Pure Station is soon coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and will have full Japanese voice-over with Chinese, English, and Japanese subtitles.
