Earlier this week, more information came to light regarding Danganronpa creator Kazutaka Kodaka’s new project: Death Come True.

Death Come True is a full-motion video (FMV) game where players have to make choices for the characters.

The game was first teased with a website hiding the faces of six characters, plus a creepy figure wearing a black cloak that resembles the Grim Reaper. The first character and protagonist, Makoto Karaki, was revealed first.

Karaki is portrayed by Kanata Hongo, an actor who has had roles in several live-action adaptations. Besides from appearances in Attack on Titan, GANTZ, and Inuyashiki, he played the protagonist Makoto Naegi in the Danganronpa stage play.

More details were also revealed concerning the game’s plot. Death Come True is an adventure game where the player’s actions drive the story.

The story is set in a hotel. The main character, Karaki, is wanted in connection with a series of murders. Karaki has lost his movies. He developed the ability to “Time Leap” when he dies and return to the past. While Karaki is being chased, he has doubts and trouble believing others and himself. As the story unfolds, players will learn his true identity.

According to his official character introduction, Karaki awakes in a hotel with his memories gone. He doesn’t remember who he is or why he’s in the hotel. He learns from a tv news broadcast that he’s being accused of being a serial killer.

The news release also states this is Japan’s first “interactive content” that combines video games and movies. It appears it will have major differences from a visual novel or other interactive games players have experienced in the past.

For those who are inexperienced with FMV games, they use real actors and actresses. The performers film small video clips. Depending on the player’s choices, different clips will play. Death Come True will feature different routes and multiple endings. There will be plenty of replay value for those who enjoy the game.

The next cast member will be revealed on Friday, December 13. It is not known which character will be announced next. According to the plot, it’s likely all of the characters will be tied to the hotel in some manner.

Death Come True’s official release date was not revealed, but it was confirmed that game is coming out in 2020.
