The 25th Ward: The Silver Case is a remaster of Suda51’s (creator of Killer 7 and No More Heroes) The 25th Ward, a stylish and surreal visual novel adventure that was previously only released in Japan.
The 25th Ward: The Silver Case is a sequel to The Silver Case (which also received a remaster in 2016) and tells three different intertwining story arcs set within a crime-riddled district known as the 25th Ward. The different stories are titled Correctness, Match Maker and Placebo and are split up into five episodes. Correctness follows two detectives as they investigate a series of bizarre murders, Match Maker tells of a ‘Regional Adjustment Division’ officer who delves into the underworld of the 25th Ward, while Placebo follows Tokio Morishima (from the original game) as he investigates mysterious events in the 25th Ward guided by a mysterious ‘Search Goddess’.
The original The Silver Case remaster was very well received upon release and The 25th Ward: The Silver Case looks set to up the ante with even more oddity as it weaves its multi-protagonist narrative. It’s a great looking game and being a Suda51 joint, expect plenty of style, surreal sights and bizarre plot twists too.
