Today Osaka-based developer Phoenix Game Productions presented its upcoming title Tokyo Underground Killer at Bitsummit in Kyoto with a new trailer.

The game is a first-person action game in development for PC in Unreal Engine 4 with a targeted release window of Q2 2024, but the developers are also considering console versions for PlayStation and Xbox. 

Visually, the game focuses on the combination of Neon and Blood, with a map set in Tokyo and inspired by the real city. In the trailer, you can spot some very iconic places albeit they're much more neon-y than the real ones. 

You can check out the trailer below.

The player can take advantage of weapons (sword and a sub-weapon, including guns) and blood magic to fight. The enemies called "Flatliners" are a mix of Japanese beauty and futuristic technology.

There is an apartment that can be customized and in which comic-style sequences progress the story, from there you can go to a city hub in Shinjuku. From the hub, you can take the subway and tackle missions that culminate in a boss battle.

Interestingly, the city hub includes minigames. Among them, there is a full-fledged Pachinko. 

The story is delivered via an interactive comic book designed by Hans Stenbach, who worked on NieR: Automata and the Resident Evil 4 Remake as an artist. The music is by Andrew Hulshult, who previously composed music for Dusk, Amid Evil, and Doom: The Ancient Gods. The director is Daniel Hedjazi, who is also the director of Phantom Fury by Slipgate Ironworks and previously worked at CyberConnect2, PlatinumGames, and Capcom.
