TOKYO – Nov. 18, 2019 – ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos, the sci-fi, anime-style VR adventure game with a dark narrative shrouded in secrecy from Japanese VR studio MyDearest Inc., will come to select VR platforms in Q4 2020.
Previously announced as PROJECT MEGALiTH, developer MyDearest Inc. nails the final name down as ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos. As the next entry in the universe of TOKYO CHRONOS, the VR murder mystery critically acclaimed and beloved by the public in Japan, ALTDEUS expands upon the original’s success with another twisting tale that branches out into multiple, unexpected paths.
Director Haruki Kashiwakura returns to weave yet another intricate tale of intrigue after his work on TOKYO CHRONOS became the only Japanese VR title recognized as part of Oculus Essentials. Character designer LAM (Persona 5, Fate/Grand Order) completes the experience by bringing his signature stunning pops of color and bold design choices to the twisted anime world of ALTDEUS.
“TOKYO CHRONOS marks my first leap into VR and with the release of ALTDEUS, I want to showcase a new side of my work,” said LAM. “It is my most ambitious project to date, and I think my work with MyDearest will continue to breath vibrant new life into the VR scene.”
