Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters for PS3, PSV and PC is an original combination of a visual novel adventure and turn-based strategy game. Players take on the role of a ghost hunting team member in Tokyo. The game is created by Japanese studio Toybox Games and Arc System Works, known in the West mainly for its two-dimensional BlazBlue and Guilty Gear series. The production was supervised by Shohoho Imai, creator of the anime series Tokyo Majin. The title song was composed by Nobuo Uematsu, a legendary composer of music for the Final Fantasy cycle. The character's projects were prepared by Chinatsu Kurahan, who talks about the appearance of characters in a popular manga and anime Uta no Prince-sama.

Story

The game takes place in Shinjuku, one of the largest and most important districts of the Japanese capital. Players take on the role of a high school student named Kurenai, who is attacked by a ghost shortly after the beginning of the school year. The boy is saved by a friend and a mysterious woman who owns a small publishing house called Gate Keepers. Apparently, it publishes books and magazines on supernatural phenomena and occultism, but it also secretly conducts other activities. On individual orders, employees of the publishing house perform exorcism and hunt for all kinds of ghosts and ghosts. At the persuasion of the boss, the main character is employed in her company and begins his adventure as a ghost conqueror.

The story is presented in the form known from visual novel games, and the portraits of the characters are animated, which gives them an additional attraction. It is worth mentioning that the title offers several different endings.

Mechanics

Gameplay in Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters on PS3, PSV and PC is divided into two main components. The first layer is a visual novel adventure where we get to know the story and establish relationships with the protagonists, and sometimes we have to make the right decision. The second component is a fight against ghosts, which takes place on a two-dimensional board divided into fields. Players determine the positions of characters and specialist ghost detection equipment. Both our exorcists and wraiths can only move during their turn, when you can use special skills and items belonging to characters and try to eliminate the opponent.

After completion of the task we are evaluated and rewarded by the client with an appropriate amount of money. New funds can be used to buy equipment or hire more helpers. Each employee has his or her own statistics and gains experience during the execution of missions.

Technical issues

The graphic design of the PS3, PSV and PC versions is functional. A lot of attention was paid to user interface designs and various statistics and tables, with which we spend most of our time playing. The soundtrack is made up of various types of instrumental rock songs.
