“The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel” Coming To Xbox, Switch this Week; PlayStation Versions Delayed to 2022
Eastasiasoft recently announced that The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel will release for Nintendo Switch, Xbone, and SeXbox on Wednesday, 15 December. The PS4 and PS5 versions are still listed as “in development” and slated to be released in Q1 2022. Why the delay? Maybe SOnY wants to censor it, who knows? (That’s completely speculation, by the way)
I feel that it’s important to note that The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel is not related to the rather unfortunate 2014 Wii U game titled The Letter in any way.
Here’s the official breakdown of The Letter from Eastasiasoft:
When seven people fall prey to a vicious curse, they discover that the true threat rests not within the shadows, but within their own hearts and minds. The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel is an interactive horror-themed drama inspired by classic Asian horror films. Told through an immersive branching narrative, the game casts players in the ever-shifting roles of seven characters as they find themselves entangled in a mystery that’s plagued Ermengarde Mansion for centuries.
The choices you make will shape and drive the story forward. Will you mend a relationship on the verge of collapse, or will you let it fall apart? Will you risk saving someone despite the consequences you could face or leave them to meet a gruesome end? Beyond the horror themes of The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel, there is heavy emphasis on character development and interaction. The fate of each of these individuals is in your hands.
The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel will be published to each console’s digital storefront for $19.99/€19.99, and there will be a 20% launch discount will be available for a limited time.
If you’re keen on a physical version of The Letter, you can currently preorder limited and retail editions for Nintendo Switch from Playasia (here), which are expected to ship in early 2022.
