It looks like us Westerners will be delving into the Experience-developed dungeon RPG this April.

The Western localization of Tokyo New World Record: Operation Abyss – titled Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy – is set to launch on April 14th in North America and April 17th in Europe, NIS America announced earlier today.

Available both digitally and physically, Operation Abyss is set in a version of Tokyo from not too far in the future; a place where monsters known as Variants keep the city under constant threat, and portals that lead to a mysterious dimension known as “the Abyss” have emerged. In reponse to this threat, the govenment establishes the Code Physics Agency – a unique group of teenagers modified by the Code Physics Agency’s Code technology.

You are put in the role of one of these teenagers, and it’s your duty to take on whatever this strange Abyss throws at you.

Sound interesting? Let’s take a closer look.

Still need more? They’ve also released the game’s key features, which are as follows;

  • 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.

…and lastly, they’ve released the Western box art – shown below;

Once again, Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy is due out April 14th in North America and April 17th in Europe.

    Thank God for Japanese developers! Otherwise my game card slot would get no use! It’s been sooooo long since I’ve played a good DC. Came really close to picking up Demon Gaze over the holidays but couldn’t resist the call of Tales and One Piece.

    Will have to keep both eyes on this one and eventually add DGaze to the physical collection as well. Weird how Vita card memory card prices have converted a primarily digital guy back to physical when it’s available. I’ve always been a cover art nerd anyway!
