    Exile Election (PS4/PS Vita)



    Nippon Ichi Software has announced Tsuihou Senkyo, or Exile Election, a new adventure game for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

    First teased last week, Famitsu reports that the game is set in a closed amusement park where an “election” in which life and death hangs in the balance will begin. The game features 12 characters and a unique mascot character named Alice. Development is currently 90 percent complete.

    Update 6:40 a.m.: Exile Election will launch in Japan on April 27 for 6,980 yen on PlayStation 4 and 5,980 yen on PS Vita.

    The game starts when a mysterious mechanical doll named “Alice,” who calls itself the administrator, proposes a type of killing each other known as discussion. The player will challenge a death game swirling with schemes and expectations.

    The protagonist’s name is Kaname Ichijou (voiced by Yoshitaka Yamaya). He is Misa Ichijou’s older brother, who always keeps calm, even in strange situations.

    These are the rest of the characters:

    • Alice (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi)
    • Ichika Houshi (voiced by Yurika Endo)
    • Misa Ichijou (voiced by Marika Kono)
    • Miori Himeno (voiced by Nao Shiraki)
    • Yuuri Himeno (voiced by Natsumi Fujiwara)
    • Michimine Isuroza (voiced by Tomoki Inoue)
    • Hakushuu Isumi (voiced by Shun’ichi Toki)
    • Izuki Ayara (voiced by Taku Yashiro)
    • Aasha Tadenomiya (voied by Risae Matsuda)
    • Kaasha Tadenomiya (voiced by Satsumi Matsuda)
    • Shihori Yurizono (voiced by Ayaka Imamura)
    • Issei Ninchouji (voiced by Kengo Kawanishi)



    Here is the staff:

    Producer: Moto Sugunuma
    Director: Akihiro Arahori
    Character Designer: Namanie
    Scenario: Maoto Nishikawa
    Source: http://gematsu.com/2017/01/nis-annou...on-ps4-ps-vita

    tl;dr:

    • New IP that seems very Zero Escape/Danganronpa-esque
    • Final stages of development
    • Release in Japan: April, 27. No localization confirmed yet
    • PS4 version around 60 bucks, PS Vita 40 bucks (standard pricing basically)
    • Set in an amusement park, where an 'election' takes place that decides the fate of the characters
    • Cast consists of 12 characters and one unique mascot called Alice (think Monokuma or Zero III)
    • It seems very, very weeby


    - - - Updated - - -

    Also worth noting: the scenario writer is Maoto Nishikawa, who has been credited with 9 visual novel titles in the past with titles such as Symphonic Rain. The director will be Akihiro Arahori, whose previous works include Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World and Trapt.

    Yeah, I'm getting heavy DR vibes from this. You sure this game's not connected to that at all?

    It's made by Spike (same company that makes DR) and I am gonna assume that they will try to copy DR's rise in prominence with as many IPs as they can. Spike's a decently small firm, I don't fault them for making a budget DR like this

    As long as the mystery's good and the writing is at least intriguing, I don't care about it being an obvious ripoff from already established franchises

    Myah, if there's too many similarities then I'm going to be put off a bit. Even the setting was already done in DR2.

    actually, the game's made by nippon ichi software (same guys who made disgaea if that franchise is known to you), not spike

    so it really does seem like a tasteless rip-off

    anyways i will keep this thread updated so take a look every now and then chap
