Nippon Ichi Software, developer of the horror series Yomawari, recently, revealed new information for the upcoming sequel, Yomawari 3, and it covers quite a few important aspects of the game.

The developers (via Gematsu) shared details in regards to certain key elements of the upcoming entry. For starters, the four main characters from the game are introduced, namely, the protagonist, who is in search of the memories that are needed to break the curse put upon her. The protagonist is customizable, and each player can change their hairstyle and accessories to make them look distinct.

Apart from the protagonist, three more characters are introduced, inclduing a girl in the protagonist’s memories, the protagonist’s cat, called Mugi, and the rumored human-faced bird called “Kotori”.

Gameplay features are also shared. If the protagonist picks up something which they used, it allows them to look back at the memories associated with the said tool. For example, picking up a pencil found in the protagonist’s home will share a forgotten memory associated with the pencil from the past.

Items that are lost can also be discovered using a flashlightt, and each item found can help with exploring the town at night. Each item picked up while using the flashlight varies in its usage, such a pebble tat can help in distracting the ghosts wandering the town, or a coin that can be offered to the local jizo statue, allowing the protagonist to use it as a checkpoint.

Nippon Ichi Software has also revealed a limited edition for Yomawari 3, exclusively available on the Japanese site. Priced at 20,000 Japanese Yen, the limited edition contains a three-sided box and sleeve with foil stamping, a soundtrack CD, an art book covering concept art for the game, and 10 pin badges featuring new illustrations.

Yomawari 3 is slated to launch on April 21 in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. No news for a western release has been revealed as of yet.
