From the studio that made Demon Gaze comes Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy ps vita , a sci-fi dungeon crawler RPG set in a near future Tokyo. With the city under the constant threat of Variants—genetically engineered monsters—and the emergence of portals leading to a mysterious dimension called the Abyss, the government has established the Code Physics Agency to investigate these mysterious phenomena. The Xth Squad—a unique group of teens modified by the CPA’s Code technology—must evade traps, face down powerful monsters, and investigate the mystery behind the Abyss.
There’s a lot to like about Norn9: Var Commons ps vita , from its complex storyline which weaves heavy sci-fi elements with relatable human drama, to its superhero flair thanks to the powers of each character, adding a lot more excitement to action sequences. Playing through a single game nine times might sound egregious, but it does pay off for those willing to stick with it through to the end. Because of the potential for an extended playthrough, however, issues such as a slow autotext feature grow all the more grating. The saving grace here is that it’s not particularly hard to get a good ending as it is with some visual novels. As such, you won’t need to waste excessive hours simply trying to perfect one route before moving onto the next. Norn9: Var Commons might not be the very best the otome genre has to offer, but it’s certainly up there.
