The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel Release Date

The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel is precisely what it says in the title, and it'll be out this week on the Switch and Xbox.

Are you a fan of visual novels? How about horror? Well, don’t snub the tin foil hat wearers, as Eastasiasoft are reading your thoughts and releasing The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel this week, and it features both those things you like. No, the other stuff.

When seven people find themselves cursed, they soon realise that their circumstances may not have been created by their environment but from within their own hearts and minds. Still, that doesn’t ignore that this takes inspiration from Asian horror films and is situated in the plagued Ermengarde Mansion. Gulp.

The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel include:

  • Discover a sprawling narrative of more than 700,000 words!
  • Make key decisions that directly impact the story’s course.
  • Play as 7 different characters, each with unique motives and personality.
  • Explore more than 80 backdrops, 100 CGs and 50 epilogue variations!
  • Customize your experience with optional quick-time events and English voiceovers.
  • Enjoy animated sprites and scenes that breathe life into your surroundings.
  • Utilize a journal feature that jots down clues and tracks events in chronological order.

As a narrative-driven tale, your choices matter, and you will have the option to mend the relationships on the brink of collapse, or you could say stuff ’em and look after yourself. While there’s a focus on horror, character development is at the heart of The Letter: A Horror Visual Novel.

Here’s the trailer:
