The website reveals that unlike the anime, the game will have multiple endings and the story will be affected by the choices the player makes, just like many visual novels. The player can select any character in the morning and the afternoon and he can also deepen his bonds with the other characters through various events which will happen as the game progresses.
The all-ages visual novel game will focus on 19 characters which are spending their afterlife in a high school. It will have six volumes with the first volume, or “1st Beat” focusing on Iwasawa’s, Matsushita’s and Yui’s routes.
The new official website also reveals new CG images from the first volume and it features the lovable Yui, the musician Iwasawa and the Judoka Matsushita as well as Yuri, The Angel/ Kanade Tachibana, Ootonashi and T.K. The game will surely be a tear jerker with these newly revealed CG images.
Angel Beats!-1st beat- is scheduled for release in Japan in 2014 and will be available for Windows 7, 8, Vista and XP. There is still no word if the game will be translated into English however.
