Putting the "Joy" back in joystick


Pre-orders on JAST USA have opened for Tokyo NECRO, Nitro Origin’s visual novel about survivors of a modern ice age and the undead roaming the ruins of Tokyo.

Tokyo NECRO is a visual novel set in the near future, after an ice age swept through the world, vastly reducing the human population. Few places in the world have managed to keep thriving. The survivors in Tokyo rely on thermal heating pipes to keep their environment habitable; however, it’s not just the icy wasteland challenging them each day, but also the rise of the living dead.

Living Dead Stalkers are contract killers working to keep the city safe from the undead, hunting down those who’d disrupt their sleep. So’un and Ethica are two contract killers working together for the Karasuzumi office. So’un is a level-headed and capable fighter but doesn’t know how to express his emotions. Meanwhile, Ethica is every bit as fiery and dangerous as she looks while wielding her chainsaw. During one of their missions together, they find a young woman named Iria, taken prisoner by one of the necromancers. She seems fascinated with anime and keeps using outdated slang in her speech. Her importance to the necromancer becomes a mystery that the duo can’t ignore.

Tokyo NECRO is a story from Nitro Origin, also known for Saya no Uta and Full Metal Daemon Muramasa. Their new visual novel attempts to improve the action sequences within their visual novels by featuring fully-animated 3D cutscenes.

Story

In the future, the world has been engulfed in the bitter cold of an ice age. And yet, Tokyo is surviving with its use of geothermal heat pipes to keep the city habitable. Within this frozen city, So’un and Ethica make their living working for the Karasuzumi Living Dead Stalker Office; contract killers who spend their working days executing necromancers and their undead minions. On one such mission, they discover a mysterious girl who had been kidnapped by a necromancer for reasons unknown.

Characters

Nagaoka So’un

He’s an expert Living Dead Stalker, one who takes his job very seriously. He isn’t the best at expressing his emotions, but always keeps a level head.

Kibanohara Ethica

She’s got a fiery personality, perfectly paired with a high capacity shotgun and a chainsaw spec’d to be as loud and flashy as possible. Before you get any ideas about a workplace romance between our two heroes, you should know that Ethica is exclusively into ladies.

Hogyo Iria

The girl discovered by So'un and Ethica while hunting down a necromancer. She seems particularly gifted at getting people to open up to her, but has a strange fascination with 20th century otaku culture. Her language is peppered with dated slang.

Gijo Mitsumi

A living dead stalker working for a rival agency. She uses a katana that vibrates at supersonic speeds which, combined with her peerless swordsmanship, make her extraordinarily adept at killing the dead.

Aso Kiriri

An officer in the Military Police, and also Ethica’s childhood friend.

Consu

Manager of a shop in the Hyper Ghetto, specializing in selling antiquated junk hardware. She serves as an important source of intelligence for the Living Dead Stalkers, and also possesses machinery needed to experiment on the undead.

Tokyo NECRO is now available for pre-order on JAST USA for the promotional price of $35.99, where it will later cost $39.99. The visual novel is scheduled to release early this year.
