It turns out that Shuuhou Imai’s new 3DS game is one that we’ve heard about before, though we had yet to see any sort of images or details until now.

The game in question is Hamatora: Look at Smoking World. You’ll find a commercial from the game above, and a few screenshots/details below.

– Imai working on the game with FuRyu
– Hamatora won’t take place in a parallel world from Hamatora: The Animation or the manga version
– Takes place in the same world, but has a different story
– The game will be enjoyable to those who’ve yet to see the anime or read the manga
– Imai was inspired by the shared universe concept often seen in American comics, where works of different titles (ex: DC and Marvel Universe can take place in the same world)
– Tokyo Majin Gakuen characters could still appear
– For now, the only thing we know that’s shared is the world between Hamatora’s anime and manga
– Game takes place in a port town of Kobe, Japan
– The transfer student protagonist suddenly has his special powers awakened
– He participates in fights with other high school students
– The characters will all be original to the game
– Imai spoke with people from the Kobe film office and visited other parts of Kobe, which will be included in the game
– Will see certain shopping districts modeled after real-life areas
– Can view them in stereoscopic 3D
– Battle system won’t be anything like Tokyo Twilight Ghosthunters
– Will be closer to the Tokyo Majin Gakuen series, which uses a strategy RPG battle system
– Out on July 17 in Japan
