NIS America and Suda51 have confirmed that The Silver Case and The 25th Ward will be released on Nintendo Switch as The Silver Case 2425 in July 2021.
Cult murder mystery visual novels The Silver Case and The 25th Ward will come to the Nintendo Switch later this year in a special two-game package titled The Silver Case 2425. The pack will be released in North America on July 6 and Europe and Oceania on July 9.
In our review of the 2016 PC edition of The Silver Case, we said: “This is not a game that will appeal to everyone, mostly because at times it feels like calling it a video game is a bit of a stretch. However, its story and presentation can negate this criticism and make it a memorable and unique experience.”
A limited-edition is also available directly from publisher NIS America. Among the included goodies are an art book and a copy of Masafumi Takada’s striking soundtrack.
