The Summer Time Rendering Another Horizon game’s official YouTube channel started broadcasting the game’s introductory video on Saturday. This game is based on the Summer Time Rendering series.
Six pathways will be available in the game, each of which will follow one of the game’s six major protagonists.
An original music CD and a strategy book with unique artwork will be included in the game’s limited edition box set, which will also be sold separately.
The “time leap adventure game” Summer Time Rendering Another Horizon will be available on January 26 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
The Tokyo MX and BS11 stations broadcast the world premiere of the Summer Time Rendering suspense anime on April 14.
The new anime will only be available for streaming on Disney+ in Japan and other Disney-owned platforms through The Walt Disney Company. Following airing, it will also be streamed on TVer in Japan. The manga’s entirety is covered throughout the 25 episodes of the anime.
Shueisha, the book’s publisher, offers the following summary of the narrative:
Shinpei visits his birthplace of Wakayama City on Hitogashima after learning of Ushio’s passing to reconcile with his boyhood friend’s family. The burial is conducted without incident, but on the island, something sinister is quietly building. What surprises are in wait for him on this remote island during the summer?
The animation was directed by Space Brothers and Children of the Sea’s Ayumu Watanabe.
The series composition and storyline were under the direction of Hiroshi Seko (Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan, Mob Psycho 100).
Character design was done by Miki Matsumoto (Major 2, Angels of Death).
The artwork was under the direction of Kusanagi (Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU and SOTSU, 22/7).
The soundtrack for MONACA was composed by Keiichi Okabe, Ryuuichi Takada, and Keigo Hoashi of the NieR series.
The 13th and final volume of the manga was released in April 2021 after Tanaka debuted it on Shonen Jump+ in October 2017. In January 2019, Shueisha released the English translation of the manga as part of their MANGA Plus program. The manga for printing was licensed by Udon Entertainment.
