Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Hits Stores Today

Nippon Ichi’s post-apocalyptic dungeon crawler Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy hits stores today with both a digital and physical release for the Playstation Vita. In this first person sci-fi adventure, players take on the role of a member of the Xth Squad—a group of teenagers modified to fight against genetically engineered monsters known as Variants. In addition to the monsters flooding the world, these brave adventurers will also have to contend with portals opening all over the city that lead to a strange dimension known as the “Abyss.”

What’s a species to do in the face of all of these horrors? Well, of course we assemble the above-mentioned group of super powered teenagers, and lead raids to help halt the advance of the Variants, exploring the darkness of the Abyss along the way. We’ll be dodging traps, defeating powerful monsters, and going deeper into the Abyss in search of the truth and how to free humanity from its oppressive grip.

Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy takes after classic dungeon crawlers from yesteryear, such as the Wizardry or Shin Megami Tensei series, utilising the typical experience grind formula. Players will work through dungeons tile-by-tile, with a group of six heroes of differing classes. It is very much a throwback to the 1980’s and Wizardry 1-3, in particular. The game is actually two-in-one, as it is a repackaged version of both Generation Xth: Hazard and Generation Xth: Breaker. Players up for a more classic dungeon crawl, as opposed to more modernized titles like Etrian Odyssey need look no further. The Launch Edition can be ordered via Gamestop or via the NIS America store. APGNation’s review of the game will be up by the end of the week.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
