Iwaihime Cast and Release Date Announced


The release date of Ryukishi07’s new horror game has finally been set: November 27th. Its cast will include:

Makoto Furukawa as Ryō Susuhara
Chinatsu Akasaki as Toe Kurogami
Mariko Honda as Tsubakiko Harumiya
Yuka Ōtsubo as Kanae Minobe
Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Lilia Nunokawa
Ryouko Tanaka as Mayu Hinakata
Yuuki Tai as Natsuya Netsuda

Nobody super famous, but a good number of people with leading roles in excellent anime. It’s also neat-o that they got a real half-Japanese person to play their half-Japanese character (presumably due to fluent English skills).

Toranona has also announced they’ll be selling a limited edition physical package for the game, besides the digital-only edition on DMM’s site. The physical edition will come with a bonus booklet and tapestry. It’s pre-order page is here. Apparently you can order stuff from Toranoana through Tenso. I’ve never done it before, but I’m sorely tempted, since this game has some beautiful artwork.

  1. I’m excited, but a bit confused! Is this an 07th Expansion work? It seems to have more characteristics from like, a key game . And the art style is definitely not Ryukishi’s, but that wasn’t so bad in RGD.


    • It’s not an 07th Expansion work per se, but Ryukishi07’s been hired to do the writing for it. It’ll be a commercial release from the Japanese internet company DMM, not a doujin game.
