Silent Hope Opening Anime Cinematic Unveiled

Opening Anime for New Action RPG, Silent Hope Featuring Song from Rock Band KAMI WA SAIKORO WO FURANAI unveiled

Digital pre-orders now available on the Nintendo eShop in Europe and Australia

London, U.K. – 6 July 2023 – Marvelous Europe today shared the opening movie for Silent Hope, a new action RPG title scheduled to launch on the Nintendo Switch™ system in North America and Europe and on PC via Steam worldwide on Oct. 3. The anime is backed with a title track by viral music sensation KAMI WA SAIKORO WO FURANAI and showcases the seven heroes enjoying a bit of downtime at Base Camp before venturing into the Abyss to take on the enemies that lurk within its depths. The rock band featuring Shuusaku Yanagita on vocals, Kiichi Yoshida on guitar, Gaku Kiriki on bass, and Ryousuke Kurokawa on drums complements Silent Hope’s wordless world with an energetic original song, setting players up for the perilous journey that lies ahead.

Shuusaku Yanagita, lead singer of KAMI WA SAIKORO WO FURANAI had this to say about creating the theme song for Silent Hope: “I’ve loved RPGs ever since I was a child. While party games are about competing with others, RPGs are about taking things at your own pace, whether leveling up your party, enjoying the scenery, or diving deeper into the stories of the main cast and even the supporting characters as well."

“When I was chosen to write the theme song for Silent Hope, a brand-new action RPG, my eyes lit up just like I was a kid again. The story and themes of this game, set in a world that has lost the ability to communicate through language, feel like an antithesis to today’s social media society. Words are a double-edged sword--a single, simple word can hurt someone deeply, but on the other hand, a single word can also save someone’s life. We hope that the message of Silent Hope and of our song will reach not only audiences in Japan, but around the world!”

In a world without words, what hope is there for humanity? Silent Hope takes place in a once-peaceful land, silenced by the former King who stole people’s speech before escaping into the endless chasm known as The Abyss. Following these events, the Princess, mourning her father’s actions, wept endlessly until her sorrow entombed her in a magical teardrop. Now, years after these events faded from memory, seven heroes find themselves imbued with new powers and drawn towards the Princess; to restore their world, they must brave the depths of The Abyss to find the long-lost King and free the Princess from her crystalline prison.

Silent Hope harkens back to the glory days of isometric dungeon-crawlers while adopting modern features. Players will take the role of seven unlikely heroes, each with their own unique weapon, fighting style, and non-combat job. After spending their days battling through enemies and collecting materials in The Abyss, the heroes return to Base Camp to craft items, improve gear, and rest up for their next adventure. Each journey into The Abyss will be a fresh experience, with randomized layouts ensuring every excursion has the element of chance, with even greater dangers lurking the further the heroes dare to venture.

The physical standard edition can be pre-ordered via the Marvelous Europe website and digital pre-orders are now available on the Nintendo eShop across Europe and Australia.

Silent Hope will be published by Marvelous Europe for Nintendo Switch in Europe and Australia on October 3rd, 2023. XSEED Games will be publishing the Nintendo Switch version in North America and the PC via Steam version worldwide. This title has been rated PEGI 12.
