CITY SHROUDED IN SHADOW
PlayStation 4™ (PS4™) - Japanese version - Exp. to ship 19 Oct 2017 - PRE-ORDER.


City Shrouded in Shadow (Japanese: 巨影都市 Kyoei Toshi) plays out in a city under great threat from a range of giant shadows.  In this sci-fi survival action adventure, the shadows come in all sorts of forms, on a different scale from humans, causing terror!  So it is left to the protagonist without any special powers to try and survive in this desparate situtaion. 
 
Kyoei Toshi (PlayStation 4™, JPN)US$ 72.99 24h

The game follows the player, an ordinary man or woman—not a hero—as they attempt to survive in a multitude of disasters involving “giant shadows” that suddenly appear. These giant shadows include Ultraman, Nise Ultraman, Alien Zarab, Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Evangelion Unit-01, The Fourth Angel, Gamera, Soldier Legion, and Patlabor’s AV-98 “Ingram,” CRL-98 “Pyro-Buster,” Type 5Q/2C “Grau Bear,” and more.

Visually the game is spot on, with the traditional neon lights that illuminate the city night landscape to the convenient stores, building lights that bring an ominous glow to the night, which adds to the hustle and bustle of the city.  From the tranquil city and its familiar, everyday streets, it is suddenly overwhelmed and engulfed by the “giant shadows”!
