Gnosia Launches Today for Nintendo Switch

Critically acclaimed in Japan, this visual novel RPG is hiding a dark and dangerous secret. Can you identify the monster before it’s too late?
TOKYO – March 04, 2021 – PLAYISM and Petit Depotto are thrilled to announce that Gnosia, their single-player, sci-fi social deduction game, is now available on Nintendo Switch. Launched originally in Japan in 2019, this critically lauded cult classic is now available in North America, Europe and Australia in the Nintendo eShop for $24.99USD.

Set on a drifting spaceship, Gnosia is a unique blend of genres, including elements of social deduction, adventure, RPG, visual novel, sci-fi and more. Similar to a story-driven version of recently popular Among Us, or other social deduction party games such as Werewolf or Mafia, each playthrough of Gnosia takes roughly 5 to 15 minutes, with each playthrough comprised of rounds or ‘loops’ of time.

Players can customize the number of Gnosia and other roles, and develop strategies by building skills that will help identify the monster, making each playthrough unique. In addition to identifying the Gnosia, players can also explore other story elements, such as what the Gnosia is and why time is repeating.

Key Features:
  • Repeatedly play through loops of up to 15 minutes long, triggering special events to unravel plot mysteries in its particularly galactic narrative
  • Engage with interesting and eclectic characters with unique personalities, experience randomly triggered events that are unique to each person and develop strong relationships
  • Players can customize their game to add up to 14 additional characters to make the game more intense
  • Beautiful and unique art style, featuring 2D illustrations of anime-type characters
As of today, Gnosia is available as a digital download from the Nintendo Switch eShop in  North America, Europe and Australia for $24.99USD.
