Meridiem Games invite you to enter the terrifying world of Yuoni as the boxed special edition is now available for PlayStation 5 across European specialist retailers. Yuoni – Sunset Edition follows the tragic story of Ai, a young Japanese girl who is haunted by otherworldly entities in a living ghost story where the sun never sets.

Yuoni was developed by Tricore Inc and published by Chorus Worldwide Games. Meridiem Games will be responsible for the manufacture and distribution of the boxed special edition across European territories. Yuoni – Sunset Edition will include a specially designed box and a set of postcards illustrating some of the terrifying artwork from the game.

Grade school is scary

Ai is a grade-schooler in 1990s Japan who is about to realize just how isolated she is. Forced to play children’s games in a world of never-ending dusk, Ai is hunted by otherworldly entities. Not only that her life hangs in the balance. When these horrors begin to bleed into the real world, Ai must accept that she has only three choices: hide, run, or die.

Yuoni Features:

  • Evolving gameplay – Test your courage in a dangerous game of hide and seek before initiating a terrifyingly twisted version of tag with abominations not of this world. Use the items you’ve gathered to flee your sunset hell. Remember the paths you’ve taken or risk being trapped there forever.
  • Japanese locations ablaze with a haunting, beautiful sunset – Experience an unnerving mix of beauty, fear, and nostalgia in a mysterious world where a Japanese house, school, and hospital are all inexplicably connected. Players can explore corridors dyed twilight crimson. Then witness the ethereal glow of amber through the paper walls of a traditional Japanese house. And escape creeping black shadows in hospital rooms where the power is somehow always out.
  • Hide or die – 10-year-old Ai has no defensive measures to defeat the enemies you face; instead, you must take advantage of each spirit’s weaknesses to survive. Hold your breath to sneak past blind foes. Dash past deaf ones as quick as your little legs can carry you. Then if you can’t get away in time, prepare to suffer a dire fate at the hands of unimaginable forces.
  • If only there were another way… – Upon clearing the game, another ending will become available to you. What story will this new path unveil? Slipping back into the terrifying world of Yuoni will see you face considerably more challenging foes for an even greater reward.
