Inspired by games like 'Syndicate' and 'Grand Theft Auto'.
Mode 7 and SMAC Games have announced that their isometric open-world game 'Tokyo 42' will be heading to PS4, PC, and Xbox One sometime in 2017. The game is heavily inspired by titles such as 'Syndicate' and the very first 'Grand Theft Auto'. Mode 7 describes the game as follows:
Tokyo 42 is an action title inspired by classics like Syndicate and GTA1. It’s viewed from an isometric perspective but the camera can be rotated to reveal every facet of its intricately designed open-world. Bullet physics, jumping with air control, sneaky stealth and crowd simulation all play a role in this ultra-colourful kinetic frenzy.
You’re a budding freelance assassin in a world where sinister forces are at play, taking on missions to pay your way and becoming embroiled in all sorts of cyber-shenanigans. There are also cats.
A multiplayer arena mode blends adds a Where’s Wally-slash-Waldo-for-other-territories dimension: change your skin and blend in with the crowd, then explode into view with a flurry of overly ambitious rockets.
You can also catch a trailer for the game right here:
The music and art direction here are absolutely terrific. and while I'd not heard of this until now, I'm really excited to give it a shot sometime in 2017.
