Mystery Visual Novel 9-nine-:Episode 3 Now Available on Denpasoft and Steam


Continue chasing after a mysterious killer in 9-nine-:Episode 3, the penultimate entry in PALETTE’s urban fantasy series.

9-nine-:Episode 3 is the second-to-last episode of PALETTE’s mystery series, set in the town of Shiromitsugawa. An earthquake has struck the town and damaged a sacred treasure in the Hakuda Tsukomo Shrine, which caused magical artifacts to appear throughout the town.

After discovering that one of the artifacts can petrify people, the series’ protagonist, Kakeru Niimi, teams up with his friends and classmates to catch the criminal. In this episode, the team will find themselves at odds with an organization of artifact users called the Rig Veda. One of the organization’s members is an upperclassman from high school, Haruka Kosaka, who becomes the main focus of 9-nine-:Episode 3.


Shiromitsugawa City: an academic city with no other particular features.

A large earthquake hits the city, damaging the sacred treasure in the Shrine of the White Viper's Relic, and causing strange items to appear from a parallel world. These "Artifacts" grant strange powers to their owners, with incidents of an owner abusing their powers and turning people into stone.

Having learned of the item that causes this petrification, the "Evil Eye Artifact", Kakeru Niimi teams up with his classmate, Miyako Kujo, and his sister, Sora Niimi, to investigate and put a stop to the culprit.

During the investigation, they find themselves at odds with "Rig Veda", an organization of Artifact users. Among their members, they spot their upperclassman in school, Haruka Kosaka.

9-nine-: Episode 3 is the latest chapter in this series of supernatural mystery visual novels with the focus now shifted towards a new heroine, Haruka Kosaka.
