Aksys Games surprised me with the announcement of Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters, a visual novel with strategy RPG elements for PS3 and Vita. I had not been expecting the game would be localized, and it’s one that I’m interested in checking out as this fusion of genres isn’t one that North America sees that often. It looks like the game will be $39.99 for both platforms and won’t be out until February 24th of next year, which gives you a bit of time for the holiday rush to die down. I’m always a supporter of visual novels of any kind, so I will be checking this one out for myself on PS3 next year. Additional details are below.

A Riveting Narrative
As a new transfer to Kurenai Academy, a seemingly harmless tour leads you to a mysteriously closed-off section of the school. In the ominously shadowed hallways you encounter a girl in white who seems to be warning you of something. Moments later, something you never expected you’d see appears before you. A vicious ghost is now threatening your very life. Fortunately for you, a woman in a smart suit intervenes, saving you and your companion. After this life-altering event, you soon find yourself joining her at Gate Keepers, Inc., an occult magazine publishing company that secretly investigates ghostly phenomena. In Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters, utilize strategy and your own team of ghost hunters to banish evil spirits in a slew of supernatural incidents!
