Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness Dated For September
On Thursday, NIS America announced that Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness would be localised for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita this September.
Based on the Psycho-Pass anime, Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness is a visual novel set in the near future, where thoughts and emotions are examined by the Sibyl System. The system then quantifies people’s emotions and compares them to the Psycho-Pass, which determines how stressed a person is, measured through the Hue, and the Crime Coefficient, which determines how likely a person is to break the law. If a person of concern is found through the Sibyl System, detectives from the Public Safety Bureau are sent to investigate. These detectives are split into Enforcers, who are sent out after criminals and crimes, and Inspectors, who manage Enforcers.
Psyco-Pass: Mandatory Happiness follows two detectives of Criminal Investigation Department’s Division 1; Nadeshiko Kugatachi, an Inspector with wiped memories, and Takuma Tsurugi, an Enforcer who is searching for his missing childhood friend.
Gameplay revolves around making decisions, which may positively or negatively impact upon the plot. There are multiple endings, which can cause the game to end quicker.
Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness was released in Japan, in 2015 for the Xbox One, and then in 2016 for the PlayStation 4.
Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness will be released on the 16th of September for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita. A Windows PC version will also be made available via Steam at a later date.
