The World Next Door is a “narrative-driven, action-adventure game that follows Jun, a rebellious teen girl trapped in a parallel world inhabited by magical creatures.”

Developed by Rose City Games and published by Viz Media, The World Next Door is “inspired by the emotional storytelling and thrilling action of both anime and indie games,” and those who play it can expect to “meet and develop friendships with an eclectic cast of characters while uncovering the mysteries hidden within this world.”

Viz has released the first official gameplay trailer for The World Next Door, which gives potential players an interesting inside-look as to what they can expect from the upcoming indie title.

The World Next Door is currently in development for PC (and will potentially be ported to other platforms.) No release date is available at this time.
