In Showa American Story, the United States has become an unofficial colony of Japan. However, a catastrophic incident sees monsters and zombies popping up all over the region. Playing as Choko, a teenage action movie stuntwoman, who has been mysteriously revived from the dead, players will travel across the US in search of her sister, and answers for what's happened to the world around her. Take on hordes of monstrous foes and take a trip back to the '80s in this wild post-apocalyptic adventure. Developed by indie game developer NEKCOM Games, Showa American Story will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?
I thought this was an American Horror spin off going by the title, looks interesting.

Nice, need more AA games. Hopefully this will get a release. Lots of promising game trailers from Chinese devolopers lately.

You know it's a japanese game because:

-redhead AND not ugly protagonist with a nice ass

-black character made by someone who never really saw a black dude in real person

-big kung fu letters all over the trailer


It looks very good and probably vaporware AF.

I've talked with friends about the oddity that is faux Japanese games coming out of China. Games that feature Japanese aesthetics, language/voice acting.
But this gotta be the best looking one yet and they have the quirkiness turned to 11.

Yeah, female breasts don't move like that when you're just walking down a hall. So looks like there might be some sort of "alien" and "otherworldly" bent to the main character.

So, it's a future where there was no Plaza accord? LOL...

Kinda dig the whole B movie feel.... and general post-war Showa aesthetic. Considering the time period has to be 1991, I'm starting to wonder if there's any specific reason for that year.

Cores, shaders and BIOS oh my!
The set up is bonkers/interesting then they go and make it a zombie apocalypse? What a waste. Combat doesn't look as fun as the better entries in the Onechanbara series. We'll see how it's like in the end I guess.

It looks like a bunch of random shit mashed up together and brought to life with the most awful execution imaginable.

China really has a hard time coming up with original, cohesive concepts of their own that don't look like mobile games, huh.

There are millions of whiny 5-year olds on Earth, and I AM THEIR KING.
It reminds me of that Resident Evil movie in the desert.

It's glorious and weird and I love it. Is that the only MC or is it create-a-character? They didn't show the face so I assumed it meant you could make whatever you wanted.

This is exactly the kind of AA type game I've been wanting more of.

And I read some of Chinese social media, they are excited about this game because of finally a game that shaming America lol
