When Death Mark initially released in 2017 in Japan, I knew right away that there was something special about it. There have been a few horror visual novel games in the past, but this new IP by Aksys and Experience had a certain vibe and panache to it that was so out there compared to others in the medium that it stuck out and demanded attention. A year later the game would be localized to the rest of the world and confirm the feelings I had of there simply being nothing like it. The horror genre has this incredible way of keeping you at the edge of your seat when you find yourself captivated by the events of what’s going on, and here we are a year later – in what’s now coined as the Spirit Hunter series – as its follow-up, NG, excels, refines, and builds upon its predecessor to tell yet another somber story of the unknown and afterlife, presenting itself in a format with hidden object and adventure elements wrapped in a visual novel delight.

Aksys Games is getting ready for tomorrow’s western launch of Spirit Hunter: NG with a new video. Find the “The First Spirit (Urashima Woman)” trailer below.

Spirit Hunter: NG, the second entry in Experience’s horror series, is coming west on October 10. Have a look at some early footage as shown on an Aksys Games live stream below.

Aksys will be bringing Code: Realize – Guardian of Rebirth to Switch next February. Fans can also look forward to the second chapter of the saga, Code: Realize – Future Blessings, in Spring 2020, the company announced today.
