Indie developers Elf Games and Luna2 Studio have announced Children of Silentown, a hand-drawn adventure game coming to Nintendo Switch from publisher Daedalic Entertainment. It will be released digitally via the Nintendo eShop on January 11th, 2023. Check out the official reveal trailer above and more details below.

Accompany Lucy and her friends in this grim, beautifully hand-drawn adventure game by the creators of Little Briar Rose, in collaboration with studio Luna2.

Lucy is afraid of the forest, just like any other child: every night, the echoing roars rob her of her sleep. Not even her dreams are a safe place where she could play.

People disappearing is nothing uncommon in the village, but this time, Lucy is old enough to investigate on her own. Or so she thinks.

Children of Silentown is a point & click adventure game telling a mysterious and endearing story. Explore the town and its dangerous surroundings, meet its quirky inhabitants, solve puzzles and master minigames.

Accompany Lucy on her adventure to get to the bottom of what is haunting the strange Silentown… if you dare.

Key Features

  • Explore Silentown in search of hints, but beware: do not enter the forest.
  • A unique, unsettling 2D art style fitting for a mysterious, dark tale.
  • Music plays a crucial role, and learning how to sing will help Lucy in times of need.
  • Combine items to obtain widely unexpected results!
  • Many quirky characters (and animals!) to interact with. Be nice to them before they disappear.
  • Play minigames with the other children of the village!
  • A very mean cat, programmed to mess with Lucy at any given chance.
  • Curious, original puzzles: use a leash and a pair of shears to break into your mother’s best friend’s house, all in order to steal… a flower?!

VTubers, virtual YouTubers that use a puppeted 3D anime-style model as their likeness, have become a cultural phenomenon over the last few years. Today, developer CyberStep has announced that they’re developing a visual-novel based around the former AXEL-V member and VTuber, Kurune Kokuri, who is known for producing content of the ASMR variety. The game, with the English placeholder title “Welcome Kokuri-san,” will be released for Switch next winter.

Although it’s been confirmed that Welcome Kokuri-san will be playable in Japanese, English, and Traditional Chinese languages, it’s unknown if the visual-novel will be published outside of Japan.

Check out more details on Welcome Kokuri-san below.

About

Welcome Kokuri-san is a visual novel starring the VTuber Kurune Kokuri. The story is fully voiced, and will include scenes with realistic ASMR voices, so you can enjoy the scenario “as if you were there.”

Story

“Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, please come see us.”

When you fearlessly chant the “Kokkuri-san” spell at school in the middle of the night, what appeared was a surprisingly cute little fox named Kurune Kokuri.

And so begins the investigation of the Seven Wonders of School by you and Kurune Kokuri…

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for “Autonomous sensory meridian response” and refers to pleasant sounds that stimulate a person’s hearing senses. Since ASMR is commonly recorded with special equipment, it can make you feel as if the voices are next to you, allowing you to become more immersed in the story.

Who is Kurune Kokuri?

Kurune Kokuri is a VTuber who was inadvertently summoned through the Japanese Ouija Board “Kokkuri-san.” Surrounded by her favorite games and delicious food, she is happily enjoying her modern life.

She is active on YouTube, live streaming games and songs with a focus on slow and soothing ASMR!

Developer Vanillaware and publisher Altlus have announced that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, their 2019-released 2D sidescrolling adventure, has sold 800,000 total copies worldwide across all platforms. It’s unknown exactly how many of those copies belong to the Nintendo Switch port that launched in April 2022, but 500,000 have been confirmed to be for PS4. Using that info, we can reduce to 300,000 million copies that were sold between the Switch and PlayStation versions, and Switch likely took a large chunk of that. Over 40,000 Switch copies have previously been confirmed to be sold in Japan.
