Sony has just announced that the PSone classic, The Silver Case, will be heading to the PlayStation 4 next year. This announcement comes courtesy of an official post on the PlayStation Blog, where it was revealed that developer Grasshopper Manufacture would be bringing a remake of their game to the console.
Originally released back in October of 1999 for the PSone, The Silver Case is a game by legendary developer Suda51. The game was also only released in Japan, so this will be the first English version of the game on modern hardware.
The plot of the game follows a series of mysterious and bizarre murders that are taking place in the 24 Districts. You play as a member of the Special Forces Unit known as “Republic” with the mission to investigate these mysterious murders that plague the city.
The narrative of The Silver Case is told through two sophisticated scenarios. The first is “Transmitter,” written by Suda Goichi and follows the detectives of the 24 Wards on the trail of the killer. The second is “Placebo,” written by Masahi Ooka and Sako Kato, and gives the player a totally different perspective as they take on the role of a freelance writer investigating the murders.
The Silver Case remake will be heading to the PlayStation 4 sometime in early 2017.
