Never has a new recreation appeared extra PlayStation 2 than Showa American Story! Announced as a post-apocalyptic RPG from NEKCOM Games, this can conjure fond recollections of these unusual titles you used to seek out in GameStop’s cut price bins again in the day. It’s bought character motion fight, third-person zombie taking pictures, and gratuitous jiggle physics – it’s virtually prefer it’s 2002 once more!
The story setup is equally amusing: “Japan has bought out most of the United States with its strong economic power. A surge of immigration has firmly planted Japanese culture within the American continent. Two cultures are rapidly amalgamated, although conflicts are inevitable, citizens gradually adapt to a life never imagined as time goes by.”
Then zombies occur, for some purpose! “A mysterious catastrophic incident changes the world drastically. The social order is long gone. An unknown amount of time passes, a teenage girl mysteriously revives from the dead, only to find a brand new wild post-apocalyptic world with zombies, monsters, and human survivors of different backgrounds and beliefs.”
In addition to the motion, you’ll be partaking in “unexpected nostalgic minigames” as you try to “live a better life and become stronger, even if it is the end of the world”. This has bought 3/10 written throughout it, but it surely’s bought that No More Heroes-esque nonsense attraction to it that might make it a cult basic. Consider our consideration piqued!
