2016’s popular cyberpunk visual novel Tokyo Necro will see an officially licensed international release early this year for PC! Localization firm JAST USA is producing it, and pre-orders are now open on Steam, GOG, and JAST USA’s storefront. JAST USA also created an English version of Tokyo Necro‘s opening sequence — check it out below!

Here’s an overview of Tokyo Necro, courtesy of JAST USA:

Tokyo has become a snow-covered wasteland where the dead walk among the living. But in this frozen hellscape people have survived, protected by the guns and cybernetics enhancements of the Living Dead Stalkers.

Developed by Nitro Origin, creators of Song of Saya and Full Metal Daemon Muramasa, Tokyo NECRO dives into the cyberpunk genre and sets a new standard for action visual novels – with fully animated 3D fight scenes and an interactive display where you can see every action your character takes through their own eyes!


In the future, the world has been engulfed in the bitter cold of an ice age. And yet, Tokyo is surviving with its use of geothermal heat pipes to keep the city habitable. Within this frozen city, So’un and Ethica make their living working for the Karasuzumi Living Dead Stalker Office; contract killers who spend their working days executing necromancers and their undead minions. On one such mission, they discover a mysterious girl who had been kidnapped by a necromancer for reasons unknown.

Tokyo Necro was developed by Nitro Plus, the co-developer of the cult classic Steins;Gate. Japanese fans and critics raved about Tokyo Necro when it released in 2016, so visual novel fans would be wise to keep their eyes on this one as it makes its way West!
