Developed by Regista and directed by Ever17 creator Nakazawa Takumi, Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition follows the events of a nuclear meltdown at a research facility from two different points of view.


Leaving an unknown amount of survivors inside and a reactor at the verge of exploding, the rescue team is sent in to figure out the situation and save the ones left inside. Unfortunately the leader of the rescue team is suffering from amnesia, which makes the situation even more complicated. The player will uncover the events that have led to this disaster. Combining the stories of the different characters and experiencing every twist and turn is the only way to uncover the truth of what happened that fateful day.

What separates Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition from contemporary games is its unique and highly involved Senses Sympathy System, in which the player must follow his senses and gut feeling and prioritize which character they want to focus on and follow, drastically changing the scenario and the outcome at every step. One wrong move can lead to their demise, and the many endings of the game are certainly not happy ever after…


The Switch port features fully HD graphics and crystal clear sound. This exclusive Collector’s Edition of the classic adventure game is a one of a kind with never before seen items and extras designed exclusively for ININ Games. Among the items are the new acrylic stand for fan favorite Yuri, an all new collector’s box design and a new artbook, as well as the fantastic soundtrack on a double CD-set with an all new jacket design.

The Collector’s Edition for Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition includes:

  • Collector’s Box with magnetic latch

  • Nintendo Switch Game with reversible Cover

  • Acrylic Stand of Yuri

  • Character Bio Art Cards

  • Art Book

  • Double CD Complete Soundtrack

  • Mini Shikishi

For the first time outside its original Japanese release, a limited set of body pillows, aka dakimakura, will be available exclusively in the Strictly Limited Games Partner Store.
