Tokyo Necro English Release Next Week; JAST Store, Steam and GOG Links Are Up

Publisher JAST has announced the release date for Tokyo Necro, the next Nitroplus visual novel coming west. It’ll be available in English on PC via JAST Store, Steam, and GOG on March 13, 2023. Pre-orders are already open on the JAST Store, while other stores only have it up for wishlisting.

Tokyo Necro is a futuristic visual novel in a setting where living dead exist thanks to Necromancers. The story follows two protagonists, Kibanohara Ethica (voice: Aji Sanma) and Nagaoka So’un (voice: Muro Genki). Both of them use martial arts to defeat the undead creatures that terrorize Tokyo’s populace as a private group called 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 a common girl with weird 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. Main illustrator is Oosaki Shin’ya (Hanachirasu) with Makoto Ishiwata handling mechanical designs, and mob characters by minoa and Yamada Uiro.
