NEKCOM Entertainment has announced Showa American Story, an action RPG set to release worldwide for the PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam, which will be published by 2P Games and Hong Kong GSE.
Set in an alternate history timeline where Japan controls the United States, now under a zombie apocalypse, players will control Chigusa Chōko, a 19-year old Japanese girl pursuing her movie dream in the United States before she and her sister were attacked and killed just as they arrived at the airport. After her mysterious revival, she will now seek out the truth and get revenge for what happened.
Showa American Story is filled with 80’s b-movie tropes – from hordes of bloodthirsty undead to yakuza and bōsōzoku gangs who fight for their own interests. The game will feature fast-paced action sequences using a breadth of weapons and skills to spill the blood of her enemies in what can only be described as over-the-top action, even sprinkled with some Gurren Lagann for good measure.
