The next entry in the Disaster Report series is coming westward.
NIS America announced that Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories will arrive in North America and Europe in early 2020. The Steam page provides the following backstory:
Thrust into a tragedy that touches countless lives, you must now make the decisions that will determine who lives and who dies in the chaos stemming from a natural disaster. What will you do in the aftermath of calamity?
When a massive earthquake strikes the city you’re visiting, you find yourself at the epicenter of a chaotic and catastrophic crisis. It’s up to you to rise above the calamity, gather your thoughts and your fellow survivors, and outlast the disaster. Aftershocks, fires, collapsing buildings and debris, and unstable ground are but a few of the threats you’ll face in these nightmarish circumstances. What will you do when every passing second and every snap decision could spell the difference between life and death?
The game was originally planned to be a PlayStation 3 title, but development was halted as a result of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. However, due to fan demand, developer Granzella placed the project back into production.
Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories will release in the west in 2020 on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4. The PlayStation version will also support PlayStation VR.
