Sotsu, FrontierWorks, Ikure, and Plus81 announced in conjunction a brand-new multimedia project, Hiyoku no Tori (literal translation: Birds of Prey), an original project which includes both a visual novel game and a drama CD.
The project is an occult mystery-style project, which centers on a group of detectives, who investigate and solve bizarre cases in Kyoto. The novel game and the drama CD are planned to be released simultaneously, and while each can be enjoyed as a complete story, playing and watching both will fully convey the appeal of the characters and the worldview, according to the developers.
▍Hiyoku no Tori Worldview
Our story begins at the Kamoin Detective Agency, a.k.a. Camotan, which has an office in Kyoto. Requests to the office range from searching for missing pets to investigating affairs.
However, there is one feature that sets it apart from other detective agencies: The occult.
For some reason, occult-like consultations about ghosts, spirits, and psychic powers come in incessantly. In the ancient capital of Kyoto, where the evil spirits of the mountains and mountains abound, Kamotan’s detectives are always on the lookout for mysterious cases.
