Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day - oprainfall

Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day is an upcoming PlayStation 3 title from Namco Bandai with an interesting history: it’s actually attached to a project called Short Peace, a collection of four animated short films. Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day is going to be the fifth story in the project and the only one in a video game format. Goichi Suda and Yohei Kataoka are both involved in its development.

Some screenshots and a plot summary for the game were released not that long ago. Now we have a short preview of the gameplay to enjoy.

Players will control a girl named Ranko Tsukigime, the daughter of a man who runs a large, shady conglomerate that deals in the rental parking business. But Ranko isn’t one to just sit back and watch business being done: on top of being a high school student, she’s also an assassin. One night she’s interrupted in the middle of a hit by a rival organization, and players have to help her escape their grasp.

The 2D gameplay promises the use of “effects” to fight. So far, the game looks like it will bring a lot of fast-paced action to the table, if not quite a bit of colorful animated chaos.

Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day has no official release date, but the Short Peace compilation of films will premiere in Japan July 20th.
