A Bizarre Serial Murder Mystery. There's A Serial Killer Close By. A Prohibited Psychothriller. The Multi-Sight System Reveals Surprising Truth!

In this game there are two heroes, Kojiroh and Marina, who are each called to solve their own cases. This game allows you to switch characters at any time to solve the mysteries these heroes encounter. This "Multi-Sight Adventure" allows you to view what's happening behind-the-scenes from the other character's perspective, bump into each other, and sometimes even help each other out. Together, they come closer and closer to the shocking truth through their combined actions and skills of deduction.

Marina's Episode: Marina is a national intelligence agent with a 99% success rate. Her new assignment is to protect the daughter of a Japanese embassy official stationed abroad. As you encounter numerous attackers, you become aware of a dangerous government dispute that is the root of all these attacks.

Kojiroh's Episode: A seemingly down-on-his-luck private investigator finally gets a break, as he is hired to locate some mysterious piece of art. Even though he feels a little weird about this case, the pay is huge! Yet he may be drawn into an unexpected nightmare involving a string of bizarre murders.

Koyasu Takehito


Wild and subtle, self-titled "Super Top-Notch Detective."

A private detective. Once belonged to the Katsuragi Detective Office, where he solved many difficult cases and made a name for himself as a great detective. But a certain incident during the events of the game "EVE Zero" compelled him to leave the office behind and try making his own detective office at the dock area in a run-down warehouse, which he still owns.

He's no good at desk work, and is more adept at using his own head to investigate. His skills didn't completely decline over the time while work was rare to come by. He's rather loose when it comes to women.
