About This Game

● NORN9 Main Story


Guided by music, the boy reached an alternate universe.
He found the surroundings so strange when he came back to himself.
The old streets of classical flavor are
just the same as the illustrations of the Meiji or Taisho era in a textbook.
Traveling through time,
the boy encountered 3 girls and 9 young men.
It's the dawn of a new journey.

"Friendship is never unbreakable. Love is never eternal.
 However, no man is an island."

What do they travel for?
Where is their destination?
More importantly, what's wrong with this world?
Dispelling the mists,
the spaceship pointed towards the end of the story.
The wheel of fortune is turning round now...

● NORN9 Background


I know this place. But something is wrong...
Japan is not that secluded country anymore.
Thanks to democracy and cultural freedom,
the enthusiastic citizens make this country more vibrant than ever before.
At the best of times,
there's no one to go astray.
No hunger, no poverty, and no war.
All men are equal in the republic.
Does such a utopia really exist in the past?
Mixed with both nostalgia and unfamiliarity,
an unknown history is ready to show you its first page.

● NORN9 System
