Fantasy Mystery Game “Future Mirror” Coming to Steam PC in November
Publisher LocaGames recently announced that the genre-blending Future Mirror will be localized into English and released on Steam PC this November.
Released in Japanese earlier this year, Future Mirror (Japanese title Mirai Kagami) was developed by indie developer Satsuki no Yume (皐月の夢). The game features elements of adventure, fantasy, and mystery, and boasts engaging characters, a gripping storyline, and “comical and fast-paced dialogue.”
The new Steam version will also include an additional epilogue sequence that will be available in both Japanese and English.
Here’s the official breakdown of Future Mirror from LocaGames:
Itsuki and Akane, two high school sophomores pondering their future, decide to try performing a spell that is supposed to allow them to see their futures ten years from now.
Itsuki is skeptical and doesn’t believe it’s possible, but egged on by Akane, she performs the spell anyway.
That night as Itsuki falls asleep, she suddenly finds herself in a world ten years in the future, in an unfamiliar place, handcuffed to a stranger, and surrounded by flames.
Itsuki wakes up from her dream and after meeting up at school the next day, is told a shocking truth by Akane:
“Ten years from now, I will be dead…”
Is it really just a dream?
Why is Akane dead?
Determined to find answers, Itsuki travels back and forth to the future in her dreams searching for a happy ending for herself and Akane.
The game combines traditional visual novel storytelling and player-controlled exploration. Depending on the player’s actions, the story branches into four different endings. Escape the disastrous future you’ve learned about in your dreams and pursue a happy future.
The Western version of Future Mirror is currently scheduled to release on Steam PC this November.
