Visual novel Grisaia Phantom Trigger 06 is scheduled to arrive on Switch this September. Ahead of its arrival, publisher Prototype have unveiled the opening cutscene for the game. Check it out with the video below.
Grisaia Phantom Trigger 6 is the latest in a series of visual novels from Prototype. Here’s an overview of this newest entry:
“Grisaia: Phantom Trigger” is a visual novel. More specifically, it is a kinetic novel, without any branching routes. Returning character artist Akio Watanabe and writer Ryuta Fujisaki bring you the latest installment in the acclaimed Grisaia series, “Grisaia: Phantom Trigger”.
Aoi Haruto is a handler at Mihama Academy. To him, today is just another normal day, but the others can’t help but notice that his behaviour seems a bit unusual. Seeing Haruto like this spreads a feeling of unease among the students of class A.
It’s the day when Haruto, along with Sengoku Ichiru, Ukawa Chihiro, and the other members of the first generation of Phantom Triggers go to visit the grave of one of their old friends, located deep in the mountains.
There sleeps Haruto’s master – Aoi.
The group makes this journey every year, and their car is filled with playful banter at first. But as they approach their destination, they’re overcome by silence and regret, as the memories of the life of Aoi – a young woman so vicious, and yet so pure – return once more.
“If ya don’t feel upset ’bout yer loss, yer better off quittin’. If ya don’t enjoy the experience you’ve gained today, then yer not suited for the job.”
“Can’t ya say that ’bout almost anythin’, though? It all depends on the person an’ their values.”
“He’s just too nice – he’s not suited to be a killer…”
“Hey! Haruto, stay with me! Ya really gonna die on me here?”
“Can I have my smokes back now, Master…?”
Life is passed from one generation to the next.
“All matter eventually breaks down, and all life eventually dies. Entropy – that’s all there is to it.”
What events led to Aoi’s final moments in this world…?
Grisaia Phantom Trigger 06 is slated to launch on Switch worldwide on September 22. English, Chinese, and Japanese language options will be supported.
