Horror Visual Novel Raging Loop To Release This October within Europe and North America

PQube Games have announced that horror themed visual novel, Raging Loop, otherwise known in Japan as Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P, will be released on the 18th October 2019 (within Europe) and 22nd October 2019 (within North America) for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Developed by KEMCO, who are often known for releasing various sprite/SNES styled JPRGS on the Nintendo Switch, and localised by PQube Games, Raging Loop tells the story of Haruaki Fusaishi after he finds himself isolated on a moutain and looking for help.

The tribute to Japanese folklore begins when the graduate student Haruaki Fusaishi ends up in the middle of nowhere during a trip to the mountains. With his motorbike broken and unfixable for now, he heads out looking for help and finds a girl near a river who invites him to Yasumizu, a small settlement.

Haruaki decides to stay for the night and he soon meets the rest of the villagers. An old saying about dead people walking along the river makes him feel unwelcome in this isolated place.

It is evening when all of a sudden, Haruaki is asked to leave the village immediately. A red mist starts surrounding the village before he can. Haruaki is told to lock himself up and to not come out under any circumstances.

The next morning, two corpses are found: the feast has begun.
Once upon a time, the mountain by the village was the home of five beast guardians. Some of the villagers have received their blessing and inherited their power.

What unfolds afterwards is a perverse mind game which has become real. No one can leave Yasumizu until the feast is over, forcing the townsfolk to vote for one person to be hanged every day until the wolves are identified in an attempt to save the village from its fate.

In addition to the release date announcement PQube Games have also confirmed a “Day One Edition” which will contain a copy of the game alongside an artbook filled with artwork from the game. Either way Raging Loop will be available both physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this October within Europe and North America.
