NIS America have announced that they’re bringing Sushi Typhoon’s Tokyo Tattoo Girls to the West this Summer.

Tokyo Tattoo Girls is set in the wake of a mysterious incident in Tokyo; some of the city’s survivors enhanced by strange tattoos. This event causes the city to be isolated and locked off from the rest of the world, and the ruins to be taken over by a unique group of individuals.

Fashioned into 23 wards – each controlled by a powerful group called the “Kumi” – these individuals form the “Union;” the only way out of this messed up version of Tokyo rumoured to be taking all of them out.

Are you game?

Here are the title’s key features;

  • Become the Tattoo Artist – Choose your companion character to help you escape from Tokyo, and develop her abilities by giving her powerful tattoos.
  • Conquer Tokyo’s 23 Wards – Battle against the Union to conquer all of Tokyo’s 23 wards in the hope of escaping the city.
  • Climb the Rankings – Enjoy unique designs inspired by traditional Japanese tattoo art created by tattoo artist Koji Tanaka.
  • Languages – Enjoy English in-game text.

Okay – so now that it’s been introduced in concept, you want a look don’t you? We’ve got an announcement trailer (featuring some art) and a few screenshots for you below.

    The concept sounds really cool, but I’m not convinced by the presentation. I’m looking forward to some more details, especially on gameplay.
