Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories is getting a western release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch next year.
NIS America has confirmed that the Granzella-developed survival adventure game, Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, will be released in the West in 2020. The game debuted in Japan on PlayStation 4 back in 2018, with a Nintendo Switch release planned for September.
Disaster Report 4 follows the journey of a user-created character who has to navigate the ruins of a city rocked by a massive earthquake. The game features a mix of environmental navigation and NPC interactions across a range of scenarios developed in collaboration with the Kobe City Fire Bureau.
The game was originally developed for the PlayStation 3 by Irem, but cancelled shortly after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Granzella acquired the IP three years later and reworked the game from the ground up, adding in support for PSVR.
There’s no word on an exact release window, but the game will be issued in a limited edition containing a soundtrack CD, identification tag, and novelty first aid box and back pack.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
