A couple of weeks back, a countdown timer was teasing something for fans of the Japanese adventure game, Yume Nikki. Well, that timer expired, and as expected, Yume Nikki: Dream Diary has been revealed. Until the reveal, we didn’t know anything about the game, but it seems that Dream Diary is actually a reboot (and not a sequel) of the 2004 original.
Dream Diary will launch on Steam and Playism on February 23, 2018 for $19.99 USD. And instead of being based in 2.5D as in the original, this new version will be fully 3D, and according to the game’s official site, will have “influences from the original game and other recent indie juggernauts”. The reboot will feature returning characters, as well as characters that creator Kikiyama had cut from the original game. Also, it appears that apart from having a native language interface, the game will contain no dialogue (at least according to the game’s Steam page).
Hopefully, as the release date approaches, we get some more info on the game.
