Shoji Meguro Of Shin Megami Tensei/Persona Fame Announces New RPG: Guns Undarkness

Shoji Meguro, the famous music composer for the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona spin-off series who recently left Atlus to be a freelancer music-maker, just announced his new game.

It’s called Guns Undarkness, and it’s a turn-based RPG set in a sci-fi universe and has guns, along with some subterfuge and espionage elements. Announced during the Indie Live Expo Winter livestream, the game is being made & published under Kodansha Lab.

Game description’s below:

“Guns Undarkness” is a “Stealth RPG” that combines typical stealth game features such as remaining undetected and invading antagonist’s territory, with the traditional command type JRPG. The gameplay is roughly divided into two parts: a stealth part that hides on the field and a battle part that is developed by a turn-based command-type battle system. Encountering without being found by the enemy allows you to enter the battle in an advantageous manner. Aim for the depths of the antagonist’s territory while managing your resources well.

The main weapons of the protagonists are firearms such as hand guns and assault rifles. By defeating enemies and obtaining materials, you can customize the equipped gun more powerfully.

The story takes place in the year 2045, in a devastated world after a nuclear war, where you become a member of a PMC (Private Military Company) and carry out missions with your peers. Amid fierce battles, the protagonists realize the “true love” that will lead humanity to a higher level of existence.”

The game will be out for PC (Steam), though it currently has no release window as of yet. Check out the gameplay trailer below.
