As August turns to September, Switch owners will be able to take a digital trip to Japan’s Shimane Prefecture in Root Letter: Last Answer, an updated port of the 2016 visual novel from Kadokawa Games.

In the game you try to uncover the truth behind a murder that took place 15 years ago, meeting the friends of the victim who have since grown up. You’ll gather evidence, talk to witnesses, explore the lovingly-detailed recreations of the town, and more.

The remake also includes a Live Action mode that swaps out the drawings for real-world photographs and actors. There are also new epilogues for returning players to experience.

Root Letter: Last Answer launches on August 30th in Europe and in North America on September 3rd.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
