The latest installment from MAGES. is set to hit the shelves on September 8, 2023, for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, and on Steam® in North America and Europe. This thrilling new adventure comes from the creator of STEINS;GATE, Chiyomaru Shikura, and features the collaboration of returning staff from the Science Adventure Series.
ANONYMOUS;CODE will be the first game in the Science Adventure Series to offer both English and Japanese voice options, catering to a broader audience. Spike Chunsoft, Inc. has assembled an impressive group of voice talent, including Max Mittelman, Anairis Quiñones (AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative English VA for Tama), and Yung-I Chang (AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative English VA for Lien).
The story of ANONYMOUS;CODE takes place in 2037, in Nakano, Tokyo. The world is still reeling from the “Sad Morning” disaster that occurred on February 6, 2036. The game follows the journey of Pollon Takaoka and his best friend Cross Yumikawa, two pro hackers trying to survive in a world that has been profoundly changed by the catastrophe.
One day, Pollon announces his intention to “elope,” despite being single. However, his life takes an unexpected turn when he meets Momo, a mysterious girl, in a place where no one should be. Their encounter attracts the attention of mysterious assailants, who pursue Momo relentlessly.
As they flee from their pursuers, Pollon acquires the “Save & Load” app, which allows him to save data and start over, much like a video game. Unbeknownst to him, this marks the beginning of a thrilling adventure.
Pollon becomes embroiled in a series of complex plots involving the enigmatic hacker “Cicada 3301,” who organizes seemingly impossible “Quests.” He also encounters the “Gaia Institute,” which reactivates a supposedly frozen earth simulation, and the shadowy operatives of the Vatican’s “513 Holy Office.”
As Pollon seeks the truth amidst these intertwined conspiracies, he must use his hacking, saving, and loading abilities to navigate the myriad branches of reality and find the ending that will save the world.
ANONYMOUS;CODE promises to be a gripping addition to the Science Adventure Series, with its intriguing plot, stunning visuals, and engaging gameplay. The game’s release on September 8, 2023, is sure to be eagerly anticipated by fans of the series and newcomers alike, as they prepare to dive into the world of Pollon Takaoka and rewrite the future.
