Charade Maniacs Mei Dazai Walkthrough

Official Website: Japanese | English

Where to Buy: Nintendo Switch

Route Notes & Tips

  • Charade Maniacs has 9 routes (and a Truth End) to achieve. Each of the LIs are divided into one of three groups: Information Team, Cooking Team, and Cleaning Team.
    • Each group has 1 locked character route. I just cleared all the unlocked characters in each group to unlock the restricted LI routes.
  • Because of the nature of the story I highly recommend going in blind and playing with your gut. It’s more fun that way, but if you want a play through order and to know the locked routes beforehand, click the corresponding colored bar below to reveal
