Say hello to Akito
Aksys Games released the fan-favorite otome title Norn9: Var Commons on Switch recently, and now they’re sharing character trailers for the game. You can check out the trailer for Akito Shukuri above. Akito has no sense of humor and hates to be teased. Don’t get on his bad side – or you will witness his wicked temper. Could he be covering for someone or something?
In Norn9: Var Commons, child prodigy Sorata Suzuhara wanders away from his class on a field trip and blacks out. When he comes to, he finds himself in an unfamiliar place, and encounters a girl who informs him that he’s in Taisho-era Japan! She leads him to a ship to help him get home, but it is not a wooden sailing ship, but a round aircraft that flies using technology beyond Sorata’s imagination. Even stranger, he discovers twelve others, three young women and nine young men, all supposedly espers with special powers, on some kind of journey at the behest of a multinational entity known only as The World.
What is the purpose of their journey? What is their destination, and what is The World? Before Sorata can even begin to grasp his situation, the ship is attacked, and the mystery only deepens. Delve into the story of the ship and its occupants through the point of view of each of the girls, and unravel the mysteries trapped within.
Coming to the west for the first time, the fan disk Norn9: Last Era continues the team’s adventures in three exciting parts. Last Era will be available in both Standard and Limited editions later this summer.
