NIS America has announced that PlayStation Vita dungeon crawler RPG, Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, will release in North America on April 14, 2015 and in Europe on April 17, 2015. The title will be available in both physical and digital formats in both regions.
Operation Abyss is Experience Inc.'s most recent Wizardy influenced dungeon crawler, following last year's Demon Gaze. The player can form a party of up to six characters each from one of ten classes: Scholar, Wizard, Warrior, Cleric, Knight, Samurai, Archer, Assassin, Monk, and Summoner. Each character is also assigned one of two "Blood Code's" for their class, which will affect their stats.
NISA also sent out a new trailer to give a preview of what the game has to offer. We gathered up some screenshots and artwork as well, and everything is in the gallery below.
About the game:
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.
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 Sci-Fi 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 feel.
