“We have been working on this game for the past one year and currently we plan to launch it in the Japanese market by this autumn,” says Rechel Route, director, producer and music composer, Shunichi Kita. “Rechel Route has one protagonist, Rechel, who needs to conquer at least 60 per cent of the area while dodging her enemies. These enemies include other fairies and monsters and with each level the enemies and difficulty increases. The player can also increase the speed of Rechel as per their needs.”

Yasunori Sugiyama is the character designer on Rechel Route and the first five levels of Rechel Route will be available for free and then one will have to pay and play. As of now, the game won’t include any in-app purchases. The game has been designed using Cocos2d-x engine and Steam will later be used as a platform to release the game.

Currently, designed only for iPhone in Japanese, Shunichi Kita plans to release the English version of it by May 2017 and depending on the success of the game, it will be launched worldwide and also for Android devices.
