Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories is making its way to the west next year, it has been confirmed. The game will be launching on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC.
With devastation and destruction everywhere you look, Disaster Report 4 has you trying to escape from the destroyed city around you. You'll be looking out for safe paths to take as you navigate falling buildings while simultaneously talking to other people around you who are understandably shaken up by the events taking place. The game originally launched in Japan on PS4 last year.
We have a brief description and a feature list to tell you a little more:
A calm summer day turns into catastrophe when a massive earthquake strikes your city, throwing buildings and lives into chaos. In order to survive, you must navigate familiar locations under unfamiliar circumstances. The fellow survivors you meet and crucial decisions you make will affect the course of your experience and ultimately determine how your journey through this crisis will end.
- Stop! Think! Then Act! - Evaluate each perilous situation and make decisions that will impact your own safety as well as that of others.
- Torn From the Headlines - Interact with realistic scenarios within a Japanese city devastated by an earthquake, including scenarios designed in collaboration with the Kobe City Fire Bureau.
- Danger Around Every Corner - Navigate a multitude of crises—from collapsing buildings to raging fires—in a city aplomb with peril.
The game is scheduled to launch in the west in 2020; it will keep its Japanese dialogue but will feature English text.
A limited edition has also been revealed (see below). NIS America notes that this edition will also be available on Switch.
