Surprise! The Tokyo 42 release date is just around the corner.
Tokyo 42 – Smac Games’ self-proclaimed lovechild of Syndicate and the original Grand Theft Auto – will be released on May 31, 2017. The game will come to PC and Xbox One first, with a PlayStation 4 release following in mid-July.
Taking place in a highly stylised, three-dimensional diorama of Tokyo, the game mixes fast paced shooting, stealth elements, and some rather cool crowd manipulation. Tokyo 42’s miniaturised game world – which can be rotated – is a truly stunning piece of design, and despite the small scale of the action, the game promises to be expansive in scope and gameplay possibilities.
To mark the announcement, a new trailer has been released that distills the game into a mere 4.2 seconds, along with a cheeky reminder to add it to your Steam wish list.
In addition to the single player open-world story, Smac Games has confirmed that the game will also include a multiplayer death-match mode.
We’ve been following Tokyo 42 for a while, and finally got to see it in action at last month’s EGX Rezzed expo. It’s safe to say that we came away impressed, and have high hopes for the final product. If you’re interested in learning more about the game’s development, we recommend checking out this series of Behind the Scenes videos from Smac’s Sean Wright and Maciek Strychalski.
Tokyo 42 is published by Mode 7, and will be released on Xbox One and PC on May 31, 2017.
