Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Screenshots Emerge from the Abyss

It seems like a new NISA dungeon-crawler releases roughly every four days. Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy is the studio’s forthcoming RPG that fancies itself as a dungeon-delving roleplaying game in a unique sci-fi setting. While most Etrian Odyssey-like titles are set against some kind of fantasy background, few take the science fiction route. In fact, JRPGs at large seemingly steer clear of sci-fi — or at least hard sci-fi — altogether, with only a handful of series ever venturing ‘off-planet.’

But still, New Tokyo Legacy looks to buck tradition and map the stars with its release. Up until recently, though, we haven’t actually seen a whole lot of the game itself. Thankfully that has changed thanks to a fresh batch of English screenshots revealed┬ájust today. Take a gander below and let us know what you think. We’re particularly optimistic about this one simply because, while its gameplay trappings look fairly conventional, the aesthetic is┬áslick and polished, all the way down to the super clean interface.

We’ll find out where things stand definitively when the game launches on the PS Vita April 14.
