A river runs through it as Maitetsu-Pure Station heads to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch

Today, Circle Entertainment announced that it will release the visual novel Maitetsu-Pure Station to the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo in the near future. The game allows players to control protagonist Migita Sotetsu as he tries to stop an industrial factory from being in his hometown.

Japanese game developer Lose and publisher Circle Entertainment are bringing Maitetsu-Pure Station onto PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game will have full Japanese voice-over with Chinese, English, and Japanese subtitles.

In Maitetsu, the player is the protagonist, Migita Sotetsu. After hearing that an industrial factory is to possibly be built along a landmark river in his hometown of Ohitoyo, Migita Sotetsu returns home to change the minds of those in charge of the factory proposal. Although half of the town’s citizens support the building of such a mill, the other half fear the potential for pollution and contamination of their beloved river.

Recognizing Ohitoyo’s budgetary decline over the last few decades, Sotetsu believes that the town requires a system that allows it to be fiscally independent instead of reliant upon a factory to stimulate its economy, and sets out to identify an alternative method in achieving this goal.

It’s during this time that Sotetsu comes across an android-like being–a “Raillord” named Hachiroku–while looking through his late adoptive father’s belongings. Although inanimate, Hachiroku and Sotetsu forge a deep, unlikely connection, and from this bond, work together in hopes of restoring Ohitoyo to its former glory.
