Arc System Works Shares More About The Missing

Swery’s White Owls and Arc System Works have been steadily building interest for The Missing, first showing a few screenshots and then releasing a trailer that still didn’t spill many beans. Now, Arc System Works has updated its website with a more spelled out synopsis of The Missing, helping us explain exactly what’s going on here.


Arc System Works has partnered with Swery, the internationally recognized game creator, to bring you the action adventure game The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam.

The sprawling nature of the island set inside an Americana aesthetic are depicted with an absurd perversion that can only be achieved through Swerism.

We hope you enjoy this story about agony and resurrection within a unique world.


The sudden disappearance of a dear friend spurs J.J. Macfield to go look for her friend on the curious Island of Memories.

You can’t die on this nightmare island, even if you’re seriously injured. No matter how many times J.J.’s brought back from the grips of death, she continues to drag her mangled body deeper into the woods.

She risks the suffering of having her arms and legs torn off, her neck broken, immolation… all in order to find her friend.

Complete the game to discover the answers to this mysterious island.

There are many puzzles that stand in your way during your journey. Hit the iron ball to reverse gravity or use pieces of J.J.’s disjointed body in order to progress. Keep an eye out on your surroundings and think about how to use that to your advantage.
