Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Mar 222023

Last July, one of the exciting announcements from Spike Chunsoft’s Anime Expo 2022 showcase was that Anonymous;Code would be released in the west in 2023.

Now the release date has been announced. Anonymous;Code will be out on September 8.

Not only that, but it’s actually getting an English dub. I was pretty surprised, since none of the others have gotten a dub (and it’s a rarity for visual novels in general), but it seems like they’re going all out for this release.

(If you prefer to pay with the Japanese voice acting, that will also be an option.)

Anonymous;Code is the most recent entry in the Science Adventure series, which also includes Chaos;Head and Chaos;Child, Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0, and Robotics;Notes and Robotics;Notes DaSH.

It seems like it’s generally recommended to have played all of them before Anonymous;Code (though maybe not DaSH, since I’ve seen it classified as a spin-off), so I have my work cut out for me.

Occultic;Nine also fits in there somewhere, but it’s an incomplete light novel series with an anime adaptation of debatable quality and an unlocalized visual novel adaptation that was supposed to get an expanded port with additional story content, but that was cancelled. If you specifically remember Occultic;Nine not being part of the Science Adventure series, it’s not a Mandela effect, but rather a retcon. It’s part of the series now, and apparently relevant to Anonymous;Code just like the others. Maybe I’ll give the anime another try.

Getting back to the matter at hand, you might be a bit wary of Anonymous;Code because of the poor state Chaos;Head Noah was in when it launched in English last year. However, the translator for this one seems to have a good track record, so we shouldn’t run into those same problems.

Are you looking forward to Anonymous;Code?

  1. Yeah, thanks for the note on the translator. And while it may be good to have played the others before… that’s a tough one for the English-reading audience, given the state of prior games 😂 Hopefully any references are light enough to not matter much, or would be explained in-game.
