Tokyo Necro, the thrilling dystopian sci-fi visual novel by Nitroplus, will be released in English by JAST in early 2023, and is now available for pre-order.
Nitroplus is a superstar in the world of visual novels, and the polish and quality they bring to their titles is rarely more evident than with Tokyo Necro. With weapon and mechanical design by Ishiwata Makoto of Full Metal Daemon Muramasa, and scenario co-writing by Shimokura Vio of YOU and ME and HER: A Love Story, Tokyo Necro boasts the best of the best from the Nitroplus talent pool.
Tokyo Necro takes place in the year 2199: the Earth has found itself plunged into a new ice age, with a number of still-functioning major cities serving as pockets of civilization.
Against this bleak backdrop we meet Nagaoka So'un and Kibanohara Ethica, who work to combat criminal activity by Necromancers. Using biotech that has yet to be fully understood, Necromancy allows practitioners to reanimate corpses as their thralls and use them for whatever nefarious purposes they may envision.
Our story begins when So'un discovers an amnesiac girl in a car trunk after what was seemingly a routine, if not harrowing, encounter with a hostile Necromancer. The girl is being pursued by a mysterious group of Necromancers known only as The Laboratory. Things escalate from there, with both So'un and Ethica discovering that their pasts and heritage must be confronted should they wish to move forward.
