Spike Chunsoft announced that they will be releasing YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World visual novel. The game is a remake of Hiroyuki Kanno’s game of the same name and was originally remade by 5pb and MAGES, the studio behind the critically-acclaimed Steins;Gate visual novel. The game is slated for release on September 4 for PC via Steam as well as PlayStation 4. A playable demo is slated for this summer but an exact release date for the demo has not been made.

Wikipedia describes the visual novel as follows:

The player travels between parallel worlds using a Reflector device, which employs a limited number of stones to mark a certain position as a returning location, so that if the player decides to retrace steps, they can go to an alternate universe to the time they’ve used a Reflector stone. The game also implemented an original system called ADMS, or Automatic Diverge Mapping System, which displays a screen that the player can check at any time to see the direction in which they are heading along the branching plot lines. Similar systems have later been employed in the 2010 role-playing video games, Radiant Historia and the PSP version of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together.
