Anime inspired point and click, Tokyo Dark, gets release date
An interesting looking adventure game coming from Square Enix Collective and the Tokyo-based Cherrymochi has been announced for release early September of this year.
Tokyo Dark will be hitting PC on the 7th of September, and is an anime-inspired side-scrolling point and click adventure.
Put in the shoes of Detective Ayami Ito, players will explore the streets of Tokyo in search of her missing partner. You’ll collect clues, follow leads and make decisions that can impact character relationships.
The developers tout Shenmue, Heavy Rain and even the likes of Clocktower and The Blackwell Legacy as wells of inspiration for this title, suggesting (in their words) not only dialogue choices that steer the story in different directions, but also multiple puzzle solution options.
Sounds pretty interesting then, and the trailer encourages that. The anime inspiration definitely comes through, and it looks gorgeous. A dark and twisted tale awaits. Hopefully it’ll turn out to be an intriguing adventure.
