Hamatora: Look at Smoking World Has A Town To Explore, Turn-Based Battles

By Sato . March 21, 2014 . 4:30pm

Unchained Blades and Exstetra makers, FuRyu, recently picked up the license for Hamatora: Look at Smoking World, an upcoming RPG that Tokyo Majin Gakuen series director Shuuhou Imai is working on for Nintendo 3DS. Here’s a closer look at the game.

 

Hamatora features a group of characters called Minimum Holders, who have special powers they’ll be putting to use in combat. The above images gives us a look at Nice and Yuika, two key characters in the game.

 

As previously mentioned, while the game takes place in the same world as the anime and manga series, it is its own story and you won’t need to be familiar with the anime to enjoy the story. There’s even a possibility one will see characters from the Tokyo Majin Gakuen series appear in the game.

 

The battle system will be turn-based, where the characters will be using their special “Minimum” skills. You’ll be pressing different input commands to pull off the attacks.

 

Hamatora takes place in a port town of Kobe, Japan, where you’ll be seeing certain shopping districts and more, modeled after real-life places in the area. There will also be places such as Chinatown-like areas, where you’ll be running around to solve various cases.

Those who preorder the game will get the Honey IC Sticker Card, that was designed using Honey’s tablet from the anime as a motif.

 

Hamatora: Look at Smoking World will be released on July 17, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.

    D’aww… thought it said “Hamtaro” at first.

  • Andar

    For a 3DS game, this kinda…doesn’t look all that good, graphically speaking. Are these screenshots poor quality somehow? Even the 2D render of Nice’s face looks off.

    Using the 3DS as a ‘Mighty Script’ tie-in is neat, but it would be more impressive with the Wii U tablet, given how similar it actually is.

      Low budget anime tie-in project.

      • Kaetsu

        I’m still excited for the game. I mean it probably won’t come here but for some reason I have the feeling that Hamatora will become pretty popular and it will eventually make it west-ward.

      look here buddy. Japanese developers dont spend much or focus on graphics. They focus more on animation, story, characters and gameplay.

      Don’t expect amazing graphics.

    • Kenny Loh

      The graphics look like the first Akiba’s trip game to me, it pretty dated (look like a psp game) but still not that bad because it in 3ds console not Vita, if this game run in Vita it would look like SAO Hollow Fragments so maybe you should blame 3ds graphics not the whole game graphics, since most 3ds users don’t care of graphics.

      Nice in-game sprite looks the same to the anime design to me.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Wow that was quick. However, you missed the protagonist, Souken (top right)

    OH YESSSSS!!!!!!

  • KuroNathan

    I think I’m too tired right now, I read that as smoking weed at first.

  • Cheesy04

    Didn’t like the anime so pretty sure I’d be skipping this one. It actually got me excited at first because it was a project intended for 3 different media(manga, anime, video game) but the anime disappointed me :<

  • British_Otaku

    I hope we get a good trailer or demo soon… I wouldn’t mind another show to watch or manga to read if the game has promising mechanics or something.

  • DyLaN

    While I do agree that the models doesn’t look good, I still think that the plot/characters should be decent enough to keep me interested in playing it IF this gets localized. (I doubt it though ;_;)

    • revenent hell

      I agree in totality with this.
      I have an inner hope for it to be localized and yet I do realize it probably wont be.
