DEEMO Memorial Keys (Deemo: Sakura no Oto – Anata no Kanadeta Oto ga, Ima mo Hibiku), the anime film based on Rayark Games’ Deemo game, will debut in Japan on February 25.
The original 2013 rhythm game, Deemo, debuted as an iOS and Android smartphone game. Rayark Games later released the game on the PlayStation Vita in Japan in 2015 with the title Deemo: Last Recital. PM Studios and Rising Star Games released the game on PS Vita in North America and Europe, respectively, in May 2017. The game received a release on the Nintendo Switch worldwide in September 2017.

Rayark Games describes the original game:
A girl who fell from the skies and lost her past
Deemo who plays the piano all alone in the world of the treehouse
an accidental encounter between the two.
The music flows as the fingers hit the piano keys.
The start of a fairytale journey has begun…
‘Before turning to leave, don’t forget to say one last goodbye.’
Rayark Games is developing the rhythm game sequel Deemo II, and will officially launch the game for iOS and Android on January 13.
