Root Letter: Last Answer Gets a Release Date

Root Letter Last Answer (1)

Nearly three years after being released in the west, a new version of the brilliant visual novel Root Letter is going to be made available.

Root Letter: Last Answer adds the option to play the game with live-action scenes, presenting a new way to experience the story. And you can switch to and from the original artwork whenever you want by going back to the game’s title screen. But that’s not all that’s new. Gameplay improvements have also been made, and new epilogues have been added that conclude Aya Fumino’s story.

Those in Europe will be able to experience Root Letter: Last Answer from 30th August, and four days later it will be available in North America, too. That’s 3rd September. It will be available on PS4 and Switch, and those who preorder or buy it at launch will obtain a special Day-One edition that includes a wonderful 100 page art book.


We reviewed Root Letter back in 2016, and stated that “just like a good book it keeps you on tenterhooks from beginning to end.” If you’ve never played it, we recommend that you check this new version out. Though we imagine it’ll be entertaining for those who are huge fans of the original release as well.
