A terrifying tale of blood, betrayal, and sacrifice will soon be unraveling for English-speaking Nintendo fans this year.
PQube has revealed that they will be localizing the Japanese visual novel Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P as Raging Loop in 2019 – for US and Europe. According to the publisher, an English physical retail release of the game will also be available.
The game originally debuted on the Japanese eShop in 2017, and was ranked the 6th best Switch title of that year. Its story follows a village haunted by a recurring curse known as ‘The Feast’.

|Lost in the mountains|
The tribute to Japanese folklore begins when the graduate student Haruaki Fusaishi ends up in the middle of nowhere during a trip to the mountains. With his motorbike broken and unfixable for now, he heads out looking for help and finds a girl near a river who invites him to Yasumizu, a small settlement.
|The eerie settlement|
Haruaki decides to stay for the night and he soon meets the rest of the villagers. An old saying about dead people walking along the river makes him feel unwelcome in this isolated place.
|Red mist creeps up|
It is evening when all of a sudden, Haruaki is asked to leave the village immediately. A red mist starts surrounding the village before he can. Haruaki is told to lock himself up and to not come out under any circumstances.
The next morning, two corpses are found: the feast has begun.
Once upon a time, the mountain by the village was the home of five beast guardians. Some of the villagers have received their blessing and inherited their power.
… will kill one person every day.
… sees if someone is a wolf or a human.
… can protect one person from getting killed by the wolves.
|The Two Monkeys|
… know each other’s identity.
… can tell whether a corpse belonged to a wolf or a human.
What unfolds afterwards is a perverse mind game which has become real. No one can leave Yasumizu until the feast is over, forcing the townsfolk to vote for one person to be hanged every day until the wolves are identified in an attempt to save the village from its fate.
