Today, Nova-box announced a remake of its first debut Echoes. The title is heading to Switch in late May – a specific date is not yet confirmed.

Echoes is a murder mystery visual novel. The remake “brings significant upgrades including a total rewrite of the game’s script, extensive improvements to the visual assets, brand-new sound effects, and a remastered and expanded soundtrack.”

Here’s some additional information:

Echoes is set in the sleepy town of Greenhearth in the rural American Northwest. The sudden death of his best friend Arthur brings NYPD detective Ricky Fox to Oregon’s countryside to begin his own, unsanctioned, investigation.

As Fox, players will search for clues and evidence, interrogate the off-kilter townsfolk, and follow a thrilling tale full of twists and turns in their quest to uncover the dark secrets lurking beneath the unassuming surface. Do beware, however, if you dare dig too deep to find the truth, you never know what horrors you may awaken.

Gorgeous black-and-white hand-painted illustrations evolve and shift with each new chapter, from a soft grey scale to a technicolor-drenched finale, Echoes is a visual treat. Parallel to the changing style, a narrative that delights in surprising you, at once a film noir pastiche, and then seamlessly melting into an 80’s horror flick.

Get a look at a trailer for Echoes below.
