An unexpected reveal, but a welcome one: Road 96 is getting a prequel, but it is nothing like that narrative-heavy and choice-driven road adventure. The game is titled Road 96: Mile 0, and it is a narrative adventure game with a musical focus.

Set before the events of Road 96, in Road 96: Mile 0, you’ll play as both Zoe (returning from Road 96) and the new character Kaito, who are teenagers on the run for different reasons. 

The announcement trailer showcases the narrative elements of the game, which have a similar heavy subject manner to the original game. Yet, there’s a musical and fantasy element here not seen in Road 96. It is hard to explain, but if you watch the trailer below, you’ll see it’s got a different vibe from Road 96.

Road 96: Mile 0 will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 4th.
