Events such as Anime Expo may not carry the same weight across the entire gaming community as PAX, E3, or Gamescom, but they can still definitely deliver some welcome announcements nonetheless. And at VIZ Media’s panel today at AX 2018, they debuted the first trailer for The World Next Door, announced earlier this year as VIZ’s foray into publishing original games. As usual, you can check out the trailer below, which suggests something promising.
A hybrid of puzzle and action-adventure games centered around a teen girl trapped in a parallel world full of the supernatural from developers Rose City Games, the clip alternates between showing off the top-down gameplay and the dialogue scenes between the unique characters, before teasing a rather imposing boss fight that you’ll be getting into. No release date was announced for the game yet, but we’ll keep you informed on when The World Next Door is ready to be released for the PC.
