It's interesting how much the city is described even when the story appears to take place in only a small area of the city - I wonder what's going to happen in the story that makes the rest of the city important.

A little bit of an update regarding what will be present at the next Comiket:

"On those days, a new trailer will be screening. (Currently, we're quickly working to finish it!) Playing during the trailer will be the completed opening theme! Also, there will be CGs that are being shown to the public for the first time, along with the confirmation of a part of the cast. There will also be a group of keywords that are important to the scenario."

The first day of Comiket is over. No news about the contents of the trailer yet, but amusingly enough, people were already cosplaying as Root Double characters there.

Small piece of news, we have the name of the OP: "Double Bible".

Double Bible... I guess that could be a reference to the whole "BC-AD" thing this game seems to have going for it.

Well, the second day is over, but still no news about the PV. Judging from some Twitter conversations about it, I wonder if they've been sworn to secrecy until the final day. Oh well.

If you're curious what the booth looks like though, here it is (it's a small photo though, probably because it was taken by Nakazawa's cell).

The trailer's up! There's two versions: one with male narration at the end, and one with female narration at the end:

http://www.yetigame.jp/w/spe02.html

While you can hear several voices in the trailer (I think one of them is Watase's while the main voice is Louise's), none of the seiyuu have been named. Furthermore, the trailer contains a part of the OP Double Bible, which is sung by Aira Yuuki.

EDIT: Youtube versions of the videos:

Brief update: Nakazawa mentions on his Twitter that he went to the studio today to watch over the voice recording session. If they're already doing voice recording, then I guess that means the script's pretty much done already.

Sorry it took me so long to post this, but I also identified the Bible quote in the trailer:

Quote:
You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape.

-Psalms 88:8

Another Nakazawa twitter update.

In one of his recent posts, he mentioned that the text size of Root Double is about 3.5 MB right now. I/O's MB size was 3.12 and Ever17's MB size was 2.87, so it seems like this one will be longer than both of them. Either way, I have doubts now that this game is simply going to be 2 routes long, especially considering that I/O was 10 routes long (though 3 of those routes were about 8 hours while the other 7 were about 2-3 hours).

Although I am concerned seeing as Tsukishima Souki is the one actually writing the script and not Nakazawa. Not that I don't trust his work... Imaginary Range was a pretty unique game, and I bet his story for Root Double will be good too, but I was hoping for some true Nakazawa goodness.

Well, maybe he's not writing the whole script. After all, in I/O, while Nakazawa left the writing of Routes A-D to other writers, he still wrote Route E (which was pretty much the "True Route"), but it wasn't listed until after the credits for Route E. So maybe he'll do the same here, just in secret.

And from what I got out of the segments I translated from the main site, Tsukishima's writing style seems to be good so far.

Minor update from Nakazawa's twitter: the main site should be updated again in a few days. Also, recording is still currently going on for the game.

Main site update:

- The "Game System" page has finally been opened
- A page on "Psychic Magical Girl: Beyond☆Commi". (Not sure how this is going to apply in game. Maybe she's supposed to be like Lem from I/O)
- Two new CGs and scenes, titled "A Hair's Breadth" and "Rampaging Doubt and Spite"
- Pages on "Beyond Communication" and "The Seven Wonders of Rokumei City"

I'll translate those once I have time later.

First of the new CG scenes.

Episode 7: A Hair's Breadth

Quote:
◆September 16th, 11:00 Episode/Route A――――

After that, they try visiting all the rooms,
but they cannot find the rescuees or the AD.

"We've also checked the passageways. We searched every nook and cranny."
Watase and Kazami continues towards the passageway leading to the factory.
But the passageway has caved in, so they can't advance forwards.

But the factory is just up ahead.
The group has already finished completely searching around the inner circuit.

"This is weird... the rescuees are nowhere to be found."
"It certainly is strange. But they might be in the factory."
"We'll could go back and help with the rescue on the other side."
"That's true. Perhaps they're――"
Just when Watase says that, there's an unexpected sound at their feet.

(What's that!?)
Taken aback, they look down――
The floor at Kazami's feet is cracking.

(The floor's going to...!)
At the instant he thinks that――Watase's time is delayed.
He can see everything in slow motion.

"!"
Realizing the accident that's coming, Kazami instantly reacts.
――Right after that, the floor at Kazami's feet collapses.

"Kazami!"
Watase instantly reaches out his hand, and grabs Kazami's arm.
At that moment, a sharp pain runs through his cracked ribs.

(Guhh!!)
But he endures it, and grasps Kazami's arm tightly.
The dust from the collapsed floor blows up, but clears up before long――
Kazami's faces looks across at Watase's.

"Whew... that was close, wasn't it, Tachibana?"
"C-Captain...!"
"It's a good thing you reacted instantly. Actually, this is quite a big deal for the body of this Watase Kasasagi."
When he says that, Kazami suddenly laughs.

"Even if you have amnesia, Captain, you really are our commanding officer..."
"So it seems... but we can save the admiration for later."
"I'm going to pull you out, so give me your other hand."
"Okay..."
Watase seizes both of Kazami's hands, and like that, brings her up in one pull.

"Th-Thank you very much, Captain..."
"You're not hurt, are you?"
"N-No..."
"I see. I'm glad to hear that. However..."
He looks over at the collapsed floor in the passage.

"Area 6 has been severely damaged by that large fire."
"You're right... do you think the others are all right?"
"We should hurry and go back so we can confirm that."
Watase says this, and they go running off again.

Episode 10: Rampaging Doubt and Spite

Quote:
◆September 16th, 2:00 P.M. Episode/ Route A――――

And when he approaches the passageway connecting to Area 1――
He hears a strange sound coming from ahead of him.

"... What's that sound?"
He holds his breath, and peeks ahead of him from the curve of the passageway.

(Moribe!?)
Jun is standing 10 meters (33 feet) ahead of him, holding an engine cutter.
For some reason, there's blooding flows from her head while she mutters something to herself.

(TN: An engine cutter is basically like a specialized type of chainsaw, frequently used by rescue teams. It can cut through many thick substances, like concrete, brick, and metal.)

"Where... the hell is that person...?
That's right... it really was that...
Then... it can't be helped anymore...
If I don't do it, I can't protect everyone... I have to kill that person...
It's painful, but I've got to do my best...!"
Jun mutters to empty space, as if she's reciting a magic spell.

When he hears that, Watase shudders.
(By "that person"... does she mean me!?)
No matter how he thinks about it, it's strange, but after just having Ukita try to kill him, Watase can't think that way anymore.
Watase turns around, and whispers into Kazami's ear.

"This is bad... Moribe's brought out an engine cutter."
"Kuh... it can't be helped. I'll try temporarily drawing her attention."
"... Are you okay with that? Even though Moribe's like your little sister...?"
"If she's gone this far, then it's likely any type of persuasion I try will be useless, so...!"
Kazami says this with a bitter voice, and Watase nods.
But just as she's about to walk out――
Watase makes a sound with his shoes.

"Who's there!?"
The sound of the engine cutter rapidly draws near.
"Wh-Why did you...!"
"Tachibana, let's run!"
Watase and Kazami desperately start running down the passageway.

Like that, they try to escape into the facility.
They take refuge in Area 3, down the continuing passageway, and when they close the gate, Kazami speaks with a frightened voice.
"C-Captain... where should we run away to?"
"... Now that Moribe's brought out that engine cutter, it'll be meaningless to barricade ourselves in any of the rooms. She'll just destroy the doors."
"But there must be some safe place we can take refuge in..."

Spoiler for Beyond Communication:


Whew, this took quite the while to translate.
