A Unique Murder Mystery Experience Is Coming to the Nintendo Switch!


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Kyoto-based video game studio, CharacterBank inc., has announced that MYSPERYENCE Story 1: The Curious Case of the Headless Magnate will be available on the Nintendo Switch (henceforth, Switch) eShop starting on June 23rd! 

Previously, MYSPERYENCE was made available through the Quest App Lab and the Steam Store as a VR experience. The Switch version of MYSPERYENCE will support online cross platform play with its VR counterpart, allowing for the first time for more players to dive in and uncover the mystery of who is responsible for the murder of the Magnate. 

MYSPERYENCE is optimized for play on the Switch. Players will need to investigate their surroundings, find clues and relive the events that transpired before the unfortunate event. 


MYSPERYENCE is a five-player online multiplayer experience. The word, MYSPERYENCE, is a portmanteau that combines the words MYSTERY and EXPERIENCE.

Players dive into the crime scene to “relive” one of the five suspects and gather crucial information, like what the suspects were doing at the crime scene and what conversations they were having.

If the players can uncover the murderer by working together, then they will solve the case.

Conversely, the player who takes the role of the murderer can win if they can deceive others and evade justice….

Please enjoy the world of MYSPERYENCE where truth and lies are mixed!

■MYSPERYENCE consists of three phases.


▼The Preparation Phase

This is where players are matched and the characters are decided upon. In addition, the rules and the controls are explained during this phase. Voice chat is possible between players, so please check your setup before joining the game. 

▼Dive Phase

This phase consists of reliving the suspects’ actions before the murder occured. Players will need to collect valuable evidence and observe the characters’ conversations, and actions before the Magnate was murdered. 

▼Discussion Phase

In this phase, players will need to discuss their findings with their peers to uncover the true events that transpired that fateful night. Players who chose the murder will need to deceive the others to evade justice. 

Players can discuss for up to 15 minutes, and if a conclusion is not reached then they can choose to relive the experiences once again (up to 3 times including the first Dive Phase).


Finally, voting is held on who everyone thinks the culprit is. Will they be brought to justice…?
