Rocket Company has released both the 30 second TV commercial and debut trailer for Medarot 8. Not only does the trailer feature new traditional animation and an overview of the gameplay systems, it also reveals the voice actors for the title. Natsuki Hanae will play the protagonist Salt, while Nao Higashiyama will play the role of Salt’s superior, Anise.
Effectively acting as a reboot, the 3DS game stars Salt, a young boy that lost his father to Medarot crime and aims to become a detective. His superior at the Laurel Detective Agency is Anise, who is renowned for her intellect and data management skills. This plays into the game’s overall mystery/detective motif as it’s brought to life by 428: In a Blockaded Shibuya and Ace Attorney‘s Yukinori Kitajima.
Rocket Company will publish Medarot 8: Kabuto Ver./Kuwagata Ver. on August 28th for 6,264yen. First run purchases will come with a bonus soundtrack CD.
