We have a growing appreciation for visual novels around Pure PlayStation. Although they are not for everyone, they often have quirky characters and focus on an interesting story or mystery. When we hear about new releases in this underappreciated genre, we like to bring them to your attention.
Root Letter is a new visual novel releasing next month. After receiving a murder confession in a letter written by a pen pal 15 years ago (you thought your postal service was slow), you have to follow the clues in her old letters to determine what happened and why she disappeared.
Some stores will offer a pre-order bonus art book, but it will also be released as a limited edition containing the following:
- Root Letter Game including special Minoboshi Taro art sleeve.
- An exclusive artbook created specifically for the Western release of Root Letter.
- Limited Edition box exclusive to the Western release of Root Letter.
Check out the trailer, and let us know your favorite visual novel in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
