Demon Gaze follow up, Operation Abyss New Tokyo Legacy, to be localized in Spring 2015

Though the Vita received many “doomed” articles over the past few years, the system has quickly become the new home and haven for JRPGs. This is a fact that is continuing onto 2015 with games like Criminal Girls and NISA’s most recent acquisition Operation Abyss New Tokyo Legacy.  Released last year in Japan as Tokyo New World Record: Operation Abyss. Operation Abyss is developed by the same team that released Demon Gaze this past Spring. The game is a sci-fi dungeon crawler that takes place in Tokyo in the near future. The city is under constant attack from genetically enhanced monsters known as Variants and mysterious portals leading to an other dimension called the Abyss. In response the government has created a group called the Code Physics Agency to investigate the portals and fight off waves of monsters. NISA has highlighted the following features in a press release they sent out this past week:


  • Robust Customization System- Recruit and train a unique group of six Xth members to venture into the Abyss. Customizeeach 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

An English trailer hasn’t been released yet, but here is the Japanese opening for the game:


Operation Abyss New Tokyo Legacy is set for a Spring 2015 release.
