Yukikaze has announced the new RPG Penny Blood , which is handled by Mr. Matsusho Machida, who created the Shadow Hearts series.
This work is a dark RPG that depicts a crazy story of Gothic Horror and nightmares, set in a crazy world of the 1920s. In an era called the 20s of the Madness, the player will become the protagonist's private detective Matthew and challenge the mystery elucidation wrapped in darkness while investigating a bizarre incident.
The story begins when Matthew, hired by the Investigation Bureau, was assigned an investigation of a mysterious case that occurred at a psychiatric hospital in New York. What Matthew saw on site is a group of mysteries that rampage there. Matthew, who fell into a pinch, turns himself into a monster and decides to repel the opponent.
This work depicts the story of One man who became a monster to defeat the monster. In order to grasp the truth of the mystery case, Matthew will expand his investigation by repeatedly encountering reliable colleagues on a long trip, not only in the United States but also in Asia and Europe. 。
The field map of this work expresses a street full of people and cursed graveyards in 3D. In the created stage that realistically depicts the world of the 1920s, we will investigate various incidents, fight monsters, and search for items that are essential for quests.
The battle combines the strategic nature of the conventional turn-based JRPG and the action that requires a quick reaction with the unique combat system Psychogiril. Although the rules are simple and easy to learn, it is necessary to train enemies efficiently, which requires training, which creates tension in battle.
The confrontation with a terrible monster affects Matthew's Sanity Points. As the number of sunturn points decreases, the characters are swallowed by madness. However, instead of losing reason, the fighting power increases, so it seems important to think about various strategies, such as dare to leave yourself crazy and enhance the fighting power.

The songs and sounds are handled by Yoshitaka Hirota and Akari Kaita, and the development is gathered in the development.
