Say hello to the cast of the next Science Adventure game; they're in for a dark, dark ride.
Chaos; Child is the next official game in the highly popular Science Adventure series. The previous games are Chaos; Head Noah, Steins; Gate and Robotics; Notes. As part of the Science Adventure series, Chaos; Child will share the same world as the previous games — specifically, Chaos; Head Noah.
The story takes place in the year 2015, six years after a devastating earthquake killed over 3000 people in Shibuya, and follows the members of a high school journalism club.
Here are the character profiles for the main cast:
Character 1: Takuru Miyashiro
Description: The main protagonist of the game, a third year high school senior, and head of the journalism club. He lost his parents in the earthquake 6 years ago and currently lives in a camping car parked in the Miyashita park evacuation area.
Character 2: Mysterious girl
Description: A young girl enveloped in mystery.
Character 3: Mio Kunosato
Description: She's a third year student at Takuru's high school, but has never attended. A tall girl who always wears a lab coat.
Character 4: Uki Yamazoe
Description: She's 14 years old, though she looks younger, and is calm and quiet for her age. She's no good with cell phones, PCs, and other devices.
Character 5: Serika Onoe

Character 8: Hana Kazuki

Here's an English subbed version of the trailer:
Producer Tatsuya Matsubara has stated that Chaos; Child will retain the psychotic suspense of Chaos; Head Noah, but will add stronger horror elements. As if these games didn't get dark enough.
Chaos; Child currently has no scheduled release date or release platform yet. No word on an English version either, but we got an official English version of Steins; Gate, so don't give up hope.
