UPDATE: Mode 7 has confirmed that the game will be multiplatform, including Xbox One, with a simultaneous release. The headline has been amended accordingly.
ORIGINAL STORY: Isometric action title Tokyo 42 will arrive on PS4 as well as PC, Mode 7 has announced.
It has a release date of early 2017. It’s not yet known if that means it will launch alongside the PC version, although that currently shares the same release window.
Maciek Strychalski’s vibrant, ultra-colourful art style coupled with his brother Sean Wright’s technical prowess packs a serious punch; the game’s gorgeous presentation is a neat visual expression of its elegant shooter gameplay,” Mode 7’s joint MD Paul Kilduff-Taylor said.
The devs describe Tokyo 42 as ‘Syndicate-meets-Monument Valley-meets-Worms’ – it’s pretty unusual, so we can turn a blind eye to those excessive hyphens. The game has a significant open world single player mode with a story and lots of side-quests, plus a competitive arena-based multiplayer component.
It’s an action game to its colourful core: every bullet and grenade has full physics, enabling you to dodge and weave while you take on rival gang members, the police or sinister corporate drones. The attention to detail in this game is extraordinary: little secrets abound in every corner of the map.”
