You may think that Japanese psycho-horror is a bit of a niche, but Angels of Death on Xbox and PlayStation is here to prove otherwise.
After becoming a hit on PC, and making moves across the comic, novel and anime scenes, it’s now time for Xbox and PlayStation gamers to get in on the action as Angels of Death launches on console.
Available to purchase and download today on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5 (as well as still being available on PC through Steam), Angels of Death comes to console to bring together Episodes 1-4 of the game of the same name that was created by Hoshikuzu KRNKRN (Makoto Sanada), which was originally released via Niconico Game Magazine (now Game Magazine), formerly operated by Dwango.
Priced up at £12.49 on the Xbox Store, Angels of Death drops onto console after an overwhelming number of fan requests, giving players the chance to join the duo of Ray and Zack as they attempt to escape from the building they are in.
This is no ordinary tale though – Ray is a young and weak yet highly intelligent girl suffering from amnesia, whilst Zack is a crazed killer who makes up for what he lacks in brainpower with brawn. Their tales come together with beautifully rendered dot art motions and effects, as the deeply emotional and introspective story, and the brilliantly original and unique world woven by indie game creator Makoto Sanada all come together to form a truly mesmerizing game experience.
- A four-part story featuring a perfect balance of entertainment and literature
- Storytelling greatly enhanced by beautiful 2D graphics and effects
- Psycho-horror featuring a crazed serial killer
- Wide variety of missions, containing everything from shooting to escape game elements
No matter whether you have played Angels of Death previously or not, now that it is on console with both Xbox and PlayStation sides covered, there is no excuse to not get involved again. And hey, even if you’ve never dipped into a Japanese horror previously, there’s always the first time…
