Hayarigami is a Horror Adventure game for PS2, and was released by NIS in 2004 in Japan. (It was followed by the sequel, Hayarigami ~Revenge~ in 2005). This game was selected as a Silver-medal Game of the Year in 2004 by Famitsu, one of the biggest videogame magazines in Japan. In Hayarigami, you play as a detective trying to solve mysterious cases that bear striking resemblances to Japanese urban legends; these include such tales as "Satoru", "The Headless Rider", and "Ghost in a Taxi".

As we mentioned, Mr. Niikawa, producer of the Disgaea® series, has created a Hayarigami online movie, which is a collection of several short stories. Highly motivated by his eagerness to walk down the red carpet, Mr. Niikawa has been putting a lot of effort to release this movie in the U.S. Hayarigami was produced by "Shiro Gumi", which has won several Japanese Academy Awards. NISA has been working with Mr. Niikawa to realize his dream of bringing his movie to the U.S. With that in mind, here is the exclusive first-look for the Hayarigami online movie! It features English subtitles, so don't worry about missing a heart-pounding moment! Turn out the lights, find a friend, and prepare to be terrified!

Spread the word about Hayarigami, and let's help Mr. Niikawa find his red carpet!!

All the products will be available from November 28th at our NIS America Online Store.

Thank you very much!
Best regards,
NISA Staff
