We're back to the present day in chapter six of The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story and it's time to start wrapping up the mystery that has eluded us so far — the identity of the Scarlet Camellia.

This chapter mixes things up once again and also abandons the normal format that preceded it. This time around, you'll be going through several Reasoning Phases in a row as you start to narrow down who your prime suspect might be, before wrapping this mystery up once and for all.

Warning – spoilers ahead!
