According to our source, 5bp., a Japanese game developer, announced that the Xbox One exclusive Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness (Psycho-Pass: Sentaku Naki Kōfuku) will be released in both English and Chinese in Hong Kong this fall.
5pb. has not announced whether the game will be available in English in other countries and territories. The Xbox One console has no regional restrictions imposed by Microsoft.
Nitroplus created an original story for the game with Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) providing the original plan and scenario supervision. The game is set within the timeframe of the first six episodes of the first television anime season. However, it shifts the setting from downtown to an isolated island.
One new male and female character each serve as the two protagonists who face off against a new enemy. Characters from the Unit 1 police team of the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division return for the game. The anime’s Kyoji Asano (Attack on Titan, Tokyo Marble Chocolate) also returned to design characters based on Reborn! creator Akira Amano‘s original designs.
The game captures players’ true movements by utilizing the Kinect peripheral and SmartGlass feature. However, players can still play the game without Kinect and SmartGlass. The title allows players to send data from their smartphones to characters in the game.
