Kowloon Highschool Chronicle Finally Heading West
Publisher Arc System Works has announced that adventure RPG Kowloon Highschool Chronicle is heading to North America and Europe on Nintendo Switch on February 4, 2021. The game is a remaster of the PlayStation 2 title Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki, which was released only in Japan in 2004. The remaster is developed by Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters developer Toybox Inc. and launched in Japan last year. Kowloon Highschool Chronicle will be available digitally, priced at $29.99.
Kowloon Highschool Chronicle sees players controlling a transfer student at Kamiyoshi Academy in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Though acting as a normal student, he is a treasure hunter on a mission to uncover a ruin beneath the school. Players build relationships with the new friends who accompany him while trying to avoid traps, monsters called “Kehito”, and the student council. The game features first-person dungeon exploration as well as a distinctive conversation system. English screenshots and gameplay can be viewed below.
