Decapolice Turn-Based RPG Trailer Showcases the Mystery-Solving and Battle Gameplay


At the Level-5 Tsuzumi live broadcast this morning, the developer showcased the gameplay introduction trailer for the upcoming turn-based detective RPG Decapolice. Decapolice is set to release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in 2023.

Decapolice takes place in Decasim, a virtual world created from a perfect copy of reality. More than just a simulation, it’s a complete copy of a real city, a forbidden place where memories of every past crime lie dormant. In order to help unravel the riddles of the real world, you must find the clues that lie inside this cyber city…

Decapolice Gameplay

In order to solve the case, the simulation of Decasim will completely recreate the incident’s circumstances. By consulting with people, you will be able to obtain their testimonies, as well as collect the evidence scattered across the board.

All of this will be added to what is known as the Evidence Table. Once you’ve collected enough, you must stick the evidence into the Case Board according to what you’ve learned.

After you’ve collected enough information, you can start to make connections between each person and help you track down the truth. Are the two suspects related by blood? Or are they just mere acquaintances? The more you figure out, the higher the percentage gauge increases, so investigate the scene thoroughly to find out the “whodunnit”!

If you think you have correctly pieced everything together, the Resolution Phase will kick in! This is where all of the suspects gather, and you must successfully point out who did it. Of course, that isn’t enough, as a criminal will not go down without a fight!

In battles of Decapolice, you are not allowed to use force unless authorized by the police. An exception to this rule is made however when the criminal’s desires materialize what is known as a Crime Beasts, where you must defeat them before they cause havoc in the city! In addition, there will be situations where you must successfully rescue civilians that have been held hostage with your negotiation powers. Sometimes peace CAN be an option, you see!
