Nitroplus-Developed Visual Novel ‘Tokyo Necro’ Now Available West via JAST & Steam; English Story Trailer

Publisher JAST has announced that the Nitroplus-developed visual novel Tokyo Necro is now available on PC via the JAST Store and Steam. In addition, purchasers can benefit from a 10% launch discount. GOG is stated to receive the title soon.

To commemorate the occasion, the publisher has shared an English story trailer detailing the premise players will find themselves embroiled.

Tokyo Necro is a futuristic visual novel in a setting where the living dead exist thanks to Necromancers. The story follows two protagonists, Kibanohara Ethica (voice: Aji Sanma) and Nagaoka So’un (voice: Muro Genki). Both use martial arts to defeat the undead creatures that terrorize Tokyo’s populace as a private group called the Karasuzumi Living Dead Stalker Office.

Their strength is widely recognized, and they have made quite a career in defeating the necromancers terrorizing Tokyo. One day, So’un and Ethica find a mysterious young girl called Hogyo Iria (voice: Yuzuhara Miu) during a hunt. Though she looks like just an ordinary girl with eccentric fashion taste based on 20th-century otaku culture, it’s clear that she needs protection from the necromancers.

Tokyo Necro‘s original concept comes from Fukami Makoto, who did the Tsunemori, Kogami, and Makishima episodes of Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness. He shared the scriptwriting with Shimomura Vio, whose works include You and Me and Her: A Love Story, Sumaga and Axanael. The main illustrator is Oosaki Shin’ya (Hanachirasu), with Makoto Ishiwata handling mechanical designs and mob characters by minoa and Yamada Uiro.
