A few months ago, I was lucky enough to be able to take part in the closed beta for Tears of Themis– the upcoming mobile game from miHoYo, the developers of global phenomenon Genshin Impact. I wrote about my experience with the game and how it differs from run of the mill detective mobile games- of which there are many- but back then there was no release date for the game. Thankfully, there isn’t long to wait for the game to hit mobile platforms. miHoYo have finally announced the long awaited released date for Tears of Themis: July 29th 2021.

There is so much to enjoy with the game- if it is anything like the beta version that I played- thanks to the genuinely intriguing storyline, likeable characters and interesting gameplay combined with a gorgeous art style and some great voice acting from in all four languages that the game is dubbed in (Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Korean). If you’re a fan of narrative driven games, this one might peak your interest.
Be sure to check out the press release for Tears of Themis below and have a go at the game yourself for mobile and android when it is released on July 29th.
