While not much in terms of specifics have been revealed regarding this game yet, GameOn – a Japanese online gaming company recently opened a teaser website for a browser-based game of Dennou Coil. The game titled Dennou Coil Hokago Tantei Kyoku or (Dennou Coil Afterschool Detective Agency) will let players control a character in Daikoku City and compete in missions based around the online world overlaying the real world. Outside of Japan, the anime series this will be based off has only been released in Australia, so for those not familiar with the title – here is a brief blurb on the series which will put the game into perspective:
Eleven years after the introduction of internet-connected, augmented reality eyeglasses and visors, Yūko Okonogi moves with her family to Daikoku City, the technological center of the emerging half-virtual world. Yūko joins her grandmother’s “investigation agency” comprised of children equipped with virtual tools and powerful metatags. She quickly crosses paths with Yūko Amasawa, an expert hacker of the virtual environment, as Amasawa relentlessly seeks to “unlock” the mystery of a computer virus that emerges from an inaccessible corrupted space.
