“Root Letter” Visual Novel Coming to Steam Sometime This Year

Visual novel Root Letter previously made its way to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in the west, and now it’s almost time for PC players to dig into the adventure. Kadokawa Games announced plans to bring Root Letter to Steam, with a release currently listed as “coming soon” sometime this year.

When a letter is delivered 15 years late – you discover an old pen-friend was involved in a murder, before she disappeared. 


Traveling to her hometown, you must investigate the murder, using her past letters as clues to uncover the disturbing truth. Using Visual Novel and investigative gameplay elements, Root Letter elevates the Visual Novel genre to a whole new level.
