Super Famicom visual novel makes English debut on iOS


Visual novel Banshee's Last Cry was released as a choose-your-own-adventure novel on the Super Famicom back in 1994, but this week's iOS port is the first chance to experience the game in English. You can try out Banshee's Last Cry for free, but you'll need to pay $3.99 if you want to flip through every digital page.

The who-done-it murder mystery takes place in a ski hotel lodge. No, you cannot just leave and let the authorities handle it - the app store description notes that guests are "snowed in" to the resort, so you can either channel Scooby Doo or let a killer go unchecked. Have we mentioned that local legends involve a banshee that can rip through flesh just by screaming? Sounds like a good time!

Banshee's Last Cry has multiple endings and unlockable side stories, so diligence is likely rewarded. While the novel is currently only available on iOS, Assistant Localization Editor "@Aksys_June" tweeted that an Android version should appear soon.
