Publisher Mode 7 explores the market level of isometric action/shooter Tokyo 42 (shown in the announcement trailer a few months ago) and others in a new alpha playthrough video.
The video is narrated by Mode 7 co-founder Paul Kilduff-Taylor as he explores multiplayer gameplay and a single-player prototype in various areas described as a "cute yet uneasy and deadly Tokyo." The game is said to draw inspiration from the Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear Solid series, as Tokyo 42 has players hiding within crowds and tracking targets utilizing stealth mechanics. The world's art style is clean and colorful, and can be rotated in 3D to see all four sides of the active area.
While in these vibrant areas you can pick up weapons from terminals and contacts so the player can tackle both storyline and side quest missions. You can also decide whether you want to approach challenges sneakily or violently. Another video of an interview with the dual-brother development team from new studio SMAC Games showing off new content will be released soon.
Tokyo 42 will be the first published title for Mode 7, as well as the first release for SMAC Games. It is expected to arrive in early 2017.
