Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Announced For A North American/European Release


When you do something great, it’s stupid for you to stop doing those things to start doing something else. The great Renaissance artist Michelangelo didn’t stop painting and instead begin making music. No…he became a Ninja Turtle but that was much later in his life. What I’m saying is that you should stick to what you’ve mastered and the team over at Experience Inc. are living up to their name and using that experience to, once again, bring us another great dungeon-crawling RPG and it goes by the name “Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy”.

You may have heard of these guys and gals if you’re familiar with the recent PlayStation Vita title “Demon Gaze”. Well Experience Inc. made that and now they’ve developed “OA: New Tokyo Legacy” with, thanks to NIS America, will be hitting North American and European shelves in the Spring of 2015 exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. NIS are trying to dominate the gaming market of 2015 and I cannot complain at all, but when it comes to explaining just why it is you should buy their games, they’re a lot better at it than me:

Robust Customization System:
Recruit and train a unique group of six Xth members to venture into the Abyss. Customize
each member from one of ten distinct Blood Codes. Each Xth member’s appearance,
class, personality,morality, and stats may be molded to the player’s preference.

An Accessible, Yet Deep Dungeon Crawler:
The labyrinthine dungeons of New Tokyo offer 40+ hours of dungeon crawling action with
traps, secret doors, challenging enemies, and gorgeous art throughout.

A Unique Cyberpunk Story:
Dive into the unique dungeon crawler setting of Operation Abyss and lose yourself in the
gorgeous world, featuring real-life locations rendered by Tetsu Kurosawa and Oxijiyen. A
gripping story blends heavy sci-fi elements with a setting to give the game a unique
cyberpunk feel.

From the studio that made Demon Gaze comes Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, a sci-fi dungeon crawler RPG set in a near future Tokyo. With the city under the constant threat of Variants—genetically engineered monsters—and the emergence of portals leading to a mysterious dimension called the Abyss, the government has established the Code Physics Agency to investigate these mysterious phenomena. The Xth Squad—a unique group of teens modified by the CPA’s Code technology—must evade traps, face down powerful monsters, and investigate the mystery behind the Abyss. – NIS America
