Take Control Of An Episode Of The Popular Anime

about X hours ago from

Set in the year 2112, Psycho-Pass presents a unique vision of a dystopian future where everything about a person’s mental state can be revealed via public scanning technology. This makes it easy to find and track the troublemakers before things get out of hand. A subject’s criminal latency is determined by their hue, or the darkness of the color represented in their scan’s results. The plot of the anime first aired in 2014, and follows a group of criminal investigators using this tech to keep the world safe.

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness is a new visual novel based off the anime coming next month that tasks players with identifying potential criminals and making decisions to bring them down. The game is set between the show’s two seasons and offers the choice of following two brand new characters in the Psycho-Pass universe. Players can assume the role of Nadeshiko, a woman suffering from amnesia, or Takuma, a man searching for his lost lover.  Recently, I got hands-on time with the title to see how it’s shaping up.
