ORIGINAL STORY 28/04/2015: Quirky murder mystery D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is coming to PC, creator Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro has said.

The designer confirmed the news in a tweet after the news broke in Japanese magazine Famitsu.

D4 launched exclusively on Xbox One in September 2014 as a Kinect-focused game, although it can also be played with the Xbox One controller. The initial release contains three episodes that make up season one of the series.

Developer Access Games is currently working on porting the game to PC and re-jigging the controls for mouse and keyboard, Swery added.
