Death Comes True is an FMV murder mystery from Kazutaka Kodaka, the creator of Danganronpa. It sees you playing as an amnesiac young man, called Makoto Karaki, who wakes up in a mysterious hotel to find that he's being hunted for a series of murders he doesn't remember committing.

To make things even stranger for the poor guy, he now inexplicably has the ability to "time leap" and return to the past. The trade-off is that he can only trigger his new skill when he dies. Time leaping allows you to redo certain encounters to see alternate outcomes.

Character profiles for specific members of the cast have been released periodically over on the game's official site. As first spotted by Gematsu, the latest is for a young woman called Nene Kurushima, who is described as "an eccentric girl that happens to be staying in the hotel. She’s a murder enthusiast and a self-proclaimed fan of the serial killer, Makoto Karaki".

Kodaka is credited as director and writer on Death Comes True, and there's no denying he's shown skill at executing similar tales in the past. Killer7, The Evil Within, and Danganronpa series composer Masafumi Takada is working on the game's soundtrack.

You'll find more info, including several other character profiles, on the game's site. Death Comes True is set to hit iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
