On Friday night, developer Spike Chunsoft dropped a new trailer for YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World. Lasting almost two minutes, it provides a sneak peek at some of the game’s locations, insight into the story, and tense action. If you are looking to prevent any and all spoilers, you might want to avoid it. Then again, it’s two minutes of a game that is estimated to be around 40 hours long, so maybe it’s not so bad to watch a bit.
The developer also had a stream (see below) last night in which they talked more about the game and showed the pre-order bonuses. They talk about other platforms, not just the PS4, but an informed consumer is a happy consumer. It’s about 25 minutes long, and I appreciate the chance to see those extra items. I don’t like surprises in my special editions, and pictures aren’t always the best at really showing what the included items are. (Bethesda, take notice when you drop your next ultra mega expensive edition.)
YU-NO is a remake of a visual novel released in the late 90s. It came to the PC, but it’s finally coming to the PS4. As I mentioned, this is not a short game. You’ll be (MILD SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) visiting different timelines to solve a mystery and puzzles and interacting with different characters with their own motives that won’t become clear until further into the story. I tried to keep it vague.
We are working on our review of the game, so I can’t say any more yet. Please check back soon for our review. Until then, check out the trailer and stream for more info.
YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World will release on October 1.

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.
