Today NIS America announced the upcoming western release of another of Nippon Ichi Software’s most recent games, void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium.
The game will come to North America and Europe in Summer 2020 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, below you can check out a trailer.
We also get an official description, and handy bullet-points providing a quick look at what void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium is all about.
In a world contaminated with toxic fungi, a discarded maintenance robot ﬁnds a girl named Toriko on the brink of death among the discarded junk in a scrapyard. After nursing her back to health, it is revealed that she may very well be the last remaining human, and is highly vulnerable to the deadly conditions of the outside world.
To ensure her survival, the robot and his newfound friend, a decommissioned AI known as factoryAI, creates a refuge for her within a terrarium.
To reinforce the terrarium as well as Toriko’s poor health, the lone robot must venture into the wasteland to gather resources while battling the vagrant machines and mutated creatures that roam there. Along the way, the uncertain future of Toriko’s existence and with her, the entire human race, will slowly come to light…
- Hope in a Cold World – From the creator of A Rose in the Twilight and htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, this harrowing roguelike adventure combines cute visuals with a somber yet whimsical post-apocalyptic story.
- Custom-Made Caretaker – Install various equipment, skills, Knacks, and parts you find on your expeditions to improve your ability to explore the wasteland and fight enemies, while preventing threats to Toriko’s health by feeding her, curing over 15 possible diseases, and building her various gadgets to make her life more comfortable in the wasteland.
- The Mysteries of the Void – Choose your loadout wisely as you ﬁght through procedurally generated levels in turn-based combat. No two adventures are alike when braving the toxic wastes.
A Limited Edition, which you can see below, will also be available for both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium‘s peculiar title might sound familiar, as it comes from the same Masayuki Furuya who created Hotaru no Nikki back in 2014, or “htoL#NiQ” for those in the know.
