NIS America have announced that Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness will be coming to the PS4, PS Vita and PC later this year.

The news, which was most likely under embargo until the end of today’s NIS America event in America, confirms that the visual-novel styled game based upon the psycho-punk sci-fi thriller anime series Psycho-Pass will be coming west.

Synopsis: The player can choose between two new detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigation Department’s Division 1; Nadeshiko Kugatachi, a calm and serious Inspector whose memories were wiped, and Takuma Tsurugi, a hot-headed Enforcer who is searching for his missing childhood friend.

You must decide the best course of action for each given situation, but regardless of the hierarchy that separates Inspector from Enforcer, players must be mindful that every decision has its own repercussions. With an intricate decision-making system, Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness offers a twisted plot and compelling cases, providing a number of different endings. Ultimately, depending on the choices made, Hues may deteriorate beyond recovery, cases may be left unsolved, and the game may end quicker than expected.

Psycho Pass: Mandatory Happiness was previously released onto the Xbox One in Japan over a year ago and an Asian English Language version was also announced; since then the game has only ever received a Japanese release with the game then later being ported to the PS4 and PS Vita due to the Xbox One’s under performing sales figures.

As you would expect the game will be in Japanese with English Subtitles while the story itself will follow the events of two new recruits who work alongside iconic characters from the first season of the popular TV anime series.

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness is currently scheduled for a FALL 2016 release; but we suspect NIS America will reveal more details in the coming months – in any event you can watch the announcement trailer, which is infact made-up of the games opening sequence, below.
