The sequel to retro-style PlayStation 4 and PS Vita adventure game 2064: Read Only Memories will investigate PS5 and PS4 this year, developer Midboss has announced. While already planned for release on Sony’s last-gen console, the studio has added the company’s next-gen system to the mix, as Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER plots a return to Neo-San Francisco.
“Take on the role of ES88, a telepath with the ability to delve into memories employed by MINERVA, a powerful organization specializing in neurotechnology and extrasensory projection phenomena,” the blurb reads. “Tasked with tracking down the Golden Butterfly, a naturally gifted psychic on the loose and wreaking havoc through the subconscious minds of Neo-San Francisco, by using the Neurodiver to search the memories in which it hides.”
There’s an older teaser trailer embedded above which should give you a taste of what to expect. The developer’s promising an “updated dynamic and colourful art style” in addition to original “retro-inspired FM music by Scarlett Moon artist Coda”. It’s probably not going to appeal to all tastes this one, but there is a demo on Steam and the Epic Games Store if you want to give it a spin.
