The game takes place in Kanai Ward, a city of rain, filled with neon signs and lamps, and ruled by Amaterasu Corporation. You play as the amnesiac protagonist, Yuma Kokohead, haunted by a Shinigami, and a trainee at the Nocturnal Detective Agency. Throughout the game, you attempt to solve crimes, veiled by layers of intrigue and, at times, misdirection. As you traverse the open world to collect evidence and testimonials, you are confronted by the “Mystery Labyrinth” realm.

The Mystery Labyrinth materializes the mysteries surrounding the case as illusions and traps, creating a series of mini-games, sometimes embedded with cutscenes. To progress through the labyrinth, the player must use logical deduction and fast reflexes to avoid taking damage and solve the case.

Haven't played many titles but am interested in visual novels. Also like competetive card games, anime/manga, and political stuff. However, I love Hata-tan the most.
