Shinjuku Soumei Visual Novel Delayed to May 24

    Free demo launching in late April.

    G-MODE and Plus81 announced visual novel Shinjuku Soumei has been delayed to May 24 for PC. This is the game’s second delay from its original February 2024 release window. 

    G-MODE revealed Shinjuku Soumei this past August after a tease about a new joint project. Just three months later in November, a February 2024 release window was decided without a specific date. G-MODE seemingly determined that more quality improvements were necessary in February, pushing the release for the first time to April 2024.
