Publisher NIS America today released a new trailer for their upcoming bullet hell shoot-’em-up and escape adventure hybrid Yurukill: The Calumniation Games, slated to arrive on consoles this summer.

The latest footage introduces many of the game’s characters while highlighting its various mechanics, including exploration, puzzle-solving, its branching dialogue system, and vertically-scrolling shooter segments.

You can find the latest trailer for Yurukill: The Calumniation Games below:

Here’s a rundown of the game courtesy of publisher NIS America:

“Renowned author Homura Kawamoto delivers a twisted, multifaceted story in Yurukill. Accused of arson and the murders of 21 people, protagonist Sengoku Shunju is forced to fight for his freedom and prove his innocence. As one of six Prisoners, he must pair up with one of five victims, referred to as Executioners, within the confines of the strange and secluded amusement park known as Yurukill Land. Together each of the five teams—Mass Murderers, Death Dealing Duo, Crafty Killers, Sly Stalkers, and Peeping Toms—must face and overcome the entertainment venue’s so-called “attractions” in order to attain what they desire. Should the Prisoners succeed, their crimes shall be pardoned. But if the Executioners win, they will be granted revenge for their loved ones.”

If you’re eager to dive into this twisted mystery, you won’t have to wait too much longer. Yurukill: The Calumniation Games will release on the Switch, PS4, and PS5 on July 5 in North America.

So, what do you think of the look of the game? If you’re a fan of bullet hell shooters or escape adventures such as the Danganronpa and Zero Escape series, this looks like it’ll certainly be worth keeping an eye on when it launches this summer. As always, we love to hear what you think. Be sure to sound off in the comments below and let us know.
