Considering Japan’s infatuation with robotics and mecha-waifus, Detroit: Become Human actually seems like a strangely good fit for the overseas market. And Sony seems to have recognised that, investing considerable sums of cash into the Quantic Dream developed narrative adventure. In addition to an enormous Famitsu feature, the publisher has also commissioned this short movie, set in Tokyo but within the rules of the release’s universe.

While there are no subtitles, it seems that an android owner who works in a library sets about erasing his robot’s memory. This results in the CyberLife creation beginning to feel fear and other human-like emotions. It’s pretty well done, and up to the standard of other PlayStation Japan clips, which are almost always of a very high quality these days. Hopefully we can get some subtitles on this video soon.
