Originally released in 2004 on PlayStation 2 as Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki in Japan, Kowloon Highschool Chronicle features remastered graphics, classic first-person dungeon exploration, and a unique conversation system.

With this interactive gameplay, players make choices that will help them solve puzzles, avoid traps, and fight enemies while joining fellow classmates to solve deep mysteries.
Kowloon Highschool Chronicle Features
- Revamped Graphics - Bringing the game firmly into the modern era, Kowloon Highschool Chronicle’s art and graphics have been redone in high definition and now match the beautiful character designs, challenging gameplay, and compelling story.
- Innovative Conversation System – Players will express themselves in the story through feelings and actions by giving an angry glare, loving touch, or a bizarre lick. How characters in the world view you depends on how straight (or insane) players present themselves.
- Deep, Challenging Gameplay – Players choose from a myriad of different friends, classmates, and allies and brave the darkest of dungeons in search of adventure and untold wealth. Players will need to build their team with care as the enemies and dungeons will present a true challenge and the wrong teammates may lead them to certain doom.
Kowloon Highschool Chronicle will be available March 26 at $19.99 on the PlayStation Store. The remastered game is also available for the Nintendo Switch, where it will see a price shift to $19.99 starting March 26. For more game information, please visit the Arc System Works website.
