Hypetrain Digital has revealed that cyberpunk JRPG Jack Move will be coming to PC on September 8th and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on September 20th. Along with revealing the game’s release date an all-new anime-style cinematic trailer has been released introducing the gritty hi-bit pixel art title’s characters.
Final Fantasy meets Ghost in the Shell as players take on cybernetic battles and uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of a father.
Presented in gorgeous hi-bit pixel art, take on the role of Noa Solares, a vigilante hacker who’s thrust into a quest to rescue her estranged father from the evil mega-corporation Monomind (it’s always the evil corporations, isn’t it?). Explore the many distinct areas of Monocity One that pay homage to sci-fi worlds like Ghost in the Shell and Blade Runner, from dingy alleyways to marketplaces where enemies lurk around every corner. Noa won’t be alone though, as her best friend Ryder and her uncle Guin Blakely, an ex-corporate spy, will help her on her way.
Help Noa take down enemies in tactical turn-based battles using killer hacking software. Players can customize the software in their trusty Cyber Deck to switch roles mid-battle, balancing offense, defense, and more. Choosing which software to use is vital to combat and key to defeating the many enemy types. From street punks and gangsters, to mysterious secret agents and corporate overlords, each enemy has their own set of abilities in combat that can impact each encounter.
Upgrade abilities over time by leveling up with experience points earned in battles and through exploring Monocity One. Boost individual stats, give Noa extra abilities, and increase the amount of software that can be equipped at a time. Enhancing Noa with new and upgraded abilities is vital to overcoming each obstacle thrown at her and becoming the ultimate hacker.
