◆A Message from Moe Iori
Q: Please tell us how you felt when you first heard that you would be the official ambassador for Yurukill: The Calumniation Games.
Honestly, the news came as quite the surprise. For starters, “escape adventure and bullet hell shoot ‘em up” is a genre I’ve never heard of, so that was intriguing. Plus, it’s based on an original story by Homura Kawamoto, best known for Kakegurui, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how that combination shapes up as the story unfolds. I can’t wait to delve into some of the puzzles and get to the bottom of the false accusations. Shoot ‘em ups aren’t exactly my forte, but I do love the genre, so I can’t wait to play!
Q: Please tell us how you would like to approach your role as official ambassador for Yurukill: The Calumniation Games.
Seeing as I’ve played quite a few bullet hell shoot ‘em up games, I’d love to do a Let’s Play on YouTube. It’d be great to cosplay as the characters from the game, too.
Q: Do you have a message for your fans?
It looks like the game has online rankings and a score attack mode, so I’d love to compete with everyone!
Let’s wait until the release date to see what’s in store for us!
