It’s that time of year where the streets of Tokyo are flooded with the best of games and otakus. So its basically every day in Tokyo. With the resurgence of classic PlayStation games and the popularity of the Switch this year’s Tokyo Game Show was pumping with action. Filled to the brim with indie, mobile and blockbuster titles alike, it was hard to know what to visit first. So here’s our list of some of the best things at Tokyo Game Show 2018!
Catherine Full Body by Studio Zero, Atlus
Catherine: Full Body is much more than just a remaster of 2011’s sleeper-hit puzzle adventure Catherine. Following the tale of Vincent Brooks a 32-year-old man facing a midlife crisis. In his attempt to escape from a more serious commitment with his girlfriend Katherine, Vincent goes for a drink and ends up sleeping with the blond and beautiful Catherine. An affair ensues and Vincent has to juggle both women while deciding which of the two is his true love. Over 20 new anime scenes have been added and the story has been changed to make room for the addition of a brand new heroine character named ‘Rin‘ who more than likely may be the third woman in this tricycle.
