Famitsu.com’s preview of this week’s issue of Gzbrain Inc.’s Weekly Famitsu magazine revealed on Tuesday that El Dia’s EVE Burst Error game is getting a sequel titled EVE Rebirth Terror, which will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in 2019. The magazine will ship on Thursday.
The game will be set one year after the events of the previous game. Kojiroh will return from the previous game as the protagonist in the sequel, and characters such as Marina will also return.
El Dia’s EVE Burst Error R visual novel remake of the original game shipped for the the PC and PlayStation Vita in 2016. The game is a “refined” version of C’s Ware and Hiroyuki Kanno‘s original EVE Burst Error PC-98 game, with new character designs by the game’s original character designer Nao Tajima. Tajima drew new event CGs and character portraits for the remake, based on the original portraits with remastered coloring.
EVE Burst Error features two heroes: Marina, a highly capable national intelligence agent, and Kojiroh, a down-on-his-luck detective. Players can switch between perspectives from the two detectives as they work on their respective cases. Players can also use this mechanic to gain different perspectives on the same case.
C’s Ware released the original game on the PC-98 platform in 1995. The developer then released subsequent versions with minor revisions on the Sega Saturn and the PlayStation 2, as well as two PC versions. MangaGamer released the PC version in English in 2012.
The game’s original creator Hiroyuki Kanno passed away in 2011, just months after the game’s original composer Ryu Umemoto also passed away.
