07th Expansion, the doujinshi circle responsible for both the “Higurashi and “Umineko” series of visual novels, announced yesterday via Twitter that they have begun development on a new visual novel. The game will be titled “TRianThorogy ~Alice in the Country of the Three-Sided Mirror~” and will feature an Alice In Wonderland-theme. On board to write the project are industry veterans Romeo Tanaka, author of the “Humanity has Declined” book series, and Yuto Tonokawa, a writer and composer who has previously contributed to Key’s “Little Busters” and “Rewrite” projects, while 07th Expansion founder and writer Ryukishi07 will once again act as the game’s chief scenario writer.
07th Expansion’s website was also updated with a promotional image for the game, which features a girl drawn by Ryukishi07 wearing a blue playing card theme dress. What role this character will play in the story of the game is unknown at the moment, as are any details surrounding its plot save for a teaser on the site that reads “”When three worlds become one, Alice will awaken.” TRianThorogy ~Alice in the Country of the Three-Sided Mirror~” will be the first major release from 07th Expansion since 2012’s “Rose Gun Days.”
