Vampire: The Masquerade: Shadows of New York coming to PC and consoles later this year

What music they make

Children of the night will be pleased to learn that Draw Distance has announced a new visual novel coming from the popular RPG brand Vampire: The Masquerade. Shadows of New York is a new pseudo-expansion to 2019’s Coteries of New York and will come slinking onto PC and consoles later in 2020.

Shadows of New York will follow the dark tale of a young woman from Lasombra, described as “an outcast in your own vampiric sect. A political prisoner of no particular value. An immigrant who never found her roots in a city of immigrants.” But when murder befalls the leader of New York’s Anarch chapter, our  is mysteriously chosen as the bloodsucker to investigate. Why her? And who is behind this latest act of violence in a city where every step, every corner turn, every encounter is fraught with peril?


Draw Distance has said that Shadows of New York is a stand-alone story, and will not require players to have experienced Coteries of New York (although Shadows will feature references and tie-ins to many elements of the Vampire: The Masquerade universe). The developer also notes that multiple playthroughs will be required to see all that that this grim realisation of The Big Apple has to offer.

Vampire: The Masquerade: Shadows of New York will launch on PS4, PC. Xbox One and Nintendo Switch later in 2020.

Kyoto Animation Arsonist Formally Arrested After Nearly a Year of Complications

Shinji Aoba, the Kyoto Animation arsonist responsible for the deaths of 36 animation professionals, is finally being arrested. The attack took place in July 2019 and, due to a variety of factors, Japanese law enforcement has been unable to formally arrest Aoba. Nearly a year later, those issues are ostensibly smoothed out and an arrest has been made. The issues getting in the way were a combination of Japanese law, medical recovery on Aoba’s part, and the COVID-19 pandemic. This news was reported over at Yahoo! Japan and translated by multiple news outlets [thanks, SoraNews24!].
