'The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel' Comes to Nintendo Switch, Playstation And Xbox In December - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2021 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel is an interactive horror-themed drama inspired by classic Asian horror films.

When seven people fall prey to a vicious curse, they discover that the true threat rests not within the shadows, but within their own hearts and minds.

Told through an immersive branching narrative, the game casts players in the ever-shifting roles of seven characters as they find themselves entangled in a mystery that’s plagued Ermengarde Mansion for centuries.

The choices you make will shape and drive the story forward. Will you mend a relationship on the verge of collapse, or will you let it fall apart? Will you risk saving someone despite the consequences you could face or leave them to meet a gruesome end? Beyond the horror themes of The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel, there is heavy emphasis on character development and interaction. The fate of each of these individuals is in your hands.


Physical editions for Nintendo Switch are also in the works, with pre-orders opening through Playasia at 11:00pm Hong Kong (11:00am ET / 4:00pm UK) this Thursday, September 16th alongside dating sim adventure Love Esquire, also from developer Yangyang Mobile.

These will include the game, manual, soundtrack CD and numbered certificate in a collector’s box, each limited to 2000 units. Standard copies will also be available as open pre-orders.
