Granzella published a 2020 retrospective article about the company’s 14 biggest news stories of the year, one of which is the April PC release of Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories in Japan, as well as discounted versions for PlayStation 4 and Switch. The end of this article is a teaser for an unannounced Disaster Report 5.
There might be some of you saying, “All you have to say are advertisements?” so I will share a bit about our next title.
According to the information I acquired from sources I cannot disclose, planning and partial prototyping for Disaster Report 5 seem to have already begun.
As for whether or not “Stiver Island” (Capital Island) is involved in the story this time… I’ll leave it at that for now as I’d rather not lose my job.
Please look forward to more news in the future!
Although this is not Granzella’s first provocation for Disaster Report 5, it is the most official.
In Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, the DLC “Epilogue Part 2”, a customer standing reading at a convenience store says: “it looks like Disaster Report 5 occurs between the first and second games…”.
Also, there is a part where you can ask another character to change the game title in exchange for an item in the main story. Among the options, we have Disaster Report 5 or Disaster Report 4 with different subtitles. Choosing the first one changes the game title to “Disaster Report 5?” in the main menu and on the loading screens (photo below).
Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories was first released for PlayStation 4 in November 2018 in Japan, followed by Switch in September 2019 and PC via Steam in April 2020 and the global launch of PlayStation 4 Switch versions.
