NIS America has announced the English release of Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Record, due out later this Spring exclusively on the PlayStation Vita (and PlayStation TV).

Developed by the same studio behind Demon Gaze, Operation Abyss; New Tokyo Record will offer more of that signature grinder RPG feel that Experience is starting to become known for. There will be both a physical and digital release for Operation Abyss depending on your personal preferences. Expect to get your hands on this new RPG in North America on April 14th, with a European release to follow on April 17th.

About the game:
From the studio that made Demon Gaze comes Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, a sci-fi dungeon crawler RPG set in a near future Tokyo. With the city under the constant threat of Variants—genetically engineered monsters—and the emergence of portals leading to a mysterious dimension called the Abyss, the government has established the Code Physics Agency to investigate these mysterious phenomena. The Xth Squad—a unique group of teens modified by the CPA’s Code technology—must evade traps, face down powerful monsters, and investigate the mystery behind the Abyss.
Key Features:
Robust Customization System
Recruit and train a unique group of six Xth members to venture into the Abyss. Customize each member from one of ten distinct Blood Codes. Each Xth member’s appearance, class, personality, morality, and stats may be molded to the player’s preference.
An Accessible, Yet Deep Dungeon Crawler
The labyrinthine dungeons of New Tokyo offer 40+ hours of dungeon crawling action with traps, secret doors, challenging enemies, and gorgeous art throughout.
A Unique Sci-Fi Story
Dive into the unique dungeon crawler setting of Operation Abyss and lose yourself in the gorgeous world, featuring real-life locations rendered by Tetsu Kurosawa and Oxijiyen.
