The third game in the ‘Science Adventures’ series is finally making its way outside of Japan later this year in the form of a double pack arriving on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Both Robotics;Notes & its sequel that was originally released in Japan only early last year, Robotics;Notes DaSH shall be packed together in a double pack ‘Robotic; Notes Double Pack,’ and release on October 16th for $59.99 RRP.
Both games will include their original Japanese audio with English subtitles and be the first time they’ve made their way to the West.
After the success of the second game in the ‘Science Adventures’ series, Steins;Gate did so well here, it’s a surprise its taken so long to get Robotics;Notes to travel west, but it’s finally time.
The visual novel games are developer by 5pb and published by Spike Chunsoft.
Check out the official descriptions for both games below.
In the near future, the PhoneDroid–a device which features augmented reality–has risen in popularity in Tanegashima.
On that island, Central Tanegashima High’s “Robot Research Club” is about to have their club disbanded.
Despite their predicament, Kaito Yashio, one of only two members in the Robot Club, couldn’t care less and would rather play a robot fighting game.
His counterpart, the reckless club leader Akiho Senomiya, ignores Kaito as she strives to keep the club from being disbanded by completing their giant robot.
One day, for some odd reason, Kaito finds an A.R. (augmented reality) annotation titled “Kimijima Report.”
It contains details about a plot involving the entire world written by a man named Ko Kimijima.
In 2020, the rapid growth and spread of the online information infrastructure is bringing the entire world closer together. The rise of robot technology has resulted in not just industrial, but consumer use of robots becoming a common sight.
The recent robot rebellion incident in February was thwarted by high school students from Tanegashima. Still, the global crisis was enough to reveal how fragile the highspeed information society truly is.
Six months have passed and Tanegashima is booming with commotion in preparation for its summer festival. The main character, Kaito Yashio, graduated high school and is currently studying to become an astronaut. On a return trip home, he encounters Itaru Hashida, a friend of Nae Tennouji who works at JAXA.
Kaito reunites with the alumni members of the Robot Club: his childhood friend Akiho Senomiya and Junna Daitoku, as well as Frau Koujiro and Subaru Hidaka, both of whom are still members of the Robot Club. They also reunite with Airi, who they met during the incident in February.
The Robot Club spends their summer days with Nae Tennouji and Itaru Hashida when, suddenly, strange incidents begin occurring all over the island, harbingers of a tragedy about to hit the entire world…
The trailer for the double pack is below.
