At their 2017 Press Event this weekend, NIS America announced that Tokyo Tattoo Girls will make its way to the PC (via Steam) and PS Vita in both North America and Europe. In addition to confirming the game’s western release, the publisher also provided us with a little information about its story, plus a trailer and some screenshots.
After a calamity befalls Tokyo, some of the city’s survivors find themselves with powerful abilities bestowed on them by colorful tattoos. The city is cordoned off from the world, its inhabitants isolated. To create peace, the city has been divided into 23 wards, each controlled by a powerful group known as “Kumi.” Together, these Kumi form the “Union.” It’s rumored that escape from the devastated city is possible, but only for the person who manages to defeat all 23 Kumi…
Tattoos are, as indicated by the title, a key feature in Tokyo Tattoo Girls. So much so that Japanese tattoo artist Koji Tanaka was tasked with designing unique, but traditionally-inspired, art for the game. In the game, players will choose a companion, and power them up with special abilities by giving them new tattoos. And in order to beat the game and escape the city, players must conquer all 23 of Tokyo’s wards by defeating the Union located there. With 23 wards, making up 23 levels, that should provide players with an ample amount of gameplay.
Tokyo Tattoo Girls will be released for the PC and PS Vita sometime in 2017. You can find the first four screenshots after the break.
