The world of the freelance assassin has never looked quite so colourful. At least, that's what we can imagine. Showing off the multiple gameplay routes of Tokyo 42, Mode 7 Games have pieced together a new video to highlight the many different approaches.
Launching at some point this year, Tokyo 42 is an isometric action title that has captured the imaginations of budding players with its fairly unique artstyle. Pulling inspiration from games like Syndicate and the original Grand Theft Auto, its levels can be handled in many different ways.
Showing off the many routes below, we see our lead character opening with a strong, aggressive push up onto the rooftops of the zone's buildings. With guards posted all around, it's imperative to have a basic understanding of the camera when it comes to rotating around the isometric world. Without it, guards may become unaccounted for and quickly end your melee-stealth rampage.
If you're looking for some early strategy gameplay, Warhammer 40,000k: Sactus Reach is due out very soon.
Deciding to go another route, we're shown how stealth can be completely ignored if you'd rather turn the beautiful Japanese cityscape into a bullet-hell shooter. Disallowing the use of full force to clear checkpoint for an easy escape, it's entirely possible to rush the enemy and strategically hide for your chance to re-enter a stealth opportunity through a different vantage point.
Once all the levels have been cleared, there's a multiplayer battle arena-style gameplay mode that makes good use of the game's skin-change feature.
