The latest entry in 5pb.’s Science Adventure series of visual novels is set to release on November 9 in Japan, and a new trailer has shown off how Occultic;Nine will play on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It’s an adaptation of the light novel and anime series of the same name, and the story follows the lives of nine individuals that are all connected to an occult blog ran by a NEET named Yūta Gamon. Currently, no localization plans have been announced. When Steins;Gate creator Chiyomaru Shikura was asked about it on Twitter, his response was “Why not? I’d be happy to. I’ll consider it.”

For more on the latest entry of the Science Adventure series to come stateside, check out our review and Chaos;Child walkthrough & trophy guide. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about the recently released visual novel:
Chaos;Child is an incredibly dark commentary on the failings of modern day society. Both the benefits and drawbacks of the technology that keeps us all connected is touched upon, and it’s not afraid of using its characters to make a point. While the twists and turns wind up going down a sci-fi heavy route in its back half, Chaos;Child never forgets that the main issues are societal. This is a visual novel that’ll leave you thinking long after the ending has occurred.
Occultic;Nine will release November 9, 2017 in Japan for PlayStation 4, Vita, and Xbox One. A North American release hasn’t been announced yet, but considering other entries in the series have been successful overseas, it wouldn’t be shocking if it did wind up getting localized.
