Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Announced for North America

NIS America has announced that the dungeon crawler RPG, Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy will be making its way to North America and Europe in March 2015 exclusively on PS Vita. This title will be available as a physical and digital release. Website and trailer will be coming soon, so please keep an eye out for it!

From the studio that made Demon Gaze comes Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, a sci-fi dungeon crawler RPG set in a near future Tokyo. With the city under the constant threat of Variants—genetically engineered monsters—and the emergence of portals leading to a mysterious dimension called the Abyss, the government has established the Code Physics Agency to investigate these mysterious phenomena. The Xth Squad—a unique group of teens modified by the CPA’s Code technology—must evade traps, face down powerful monsters, and investigate the mystery behind the Abyss.

The news comes hot off the heels of Disgaea 5 being announced for North America and The Awakened Fate Ultimatum receiving western release dates.
