You’ll set out on a quest to clear your brother’s name, meeting new friends (and enemies?) along the way.

    The game also features customization options for your characters, as well as lasting consequences for your actions and 28 different endings. You can even build relationships with up to five potential partners, because love is always in the cards when you celebrate at a spring festival.

    The game features realistically rendered faces for the characters as well as an AI-powered traffic system that will put your street navigation to the test.
