Project Tokyo Dolls released last June 22nd, 2017. A full-voiced, 3D, Tap Action Mobile Game developed and published by Square Enix in Japan. The game is packed with well-known female seiyuu, an in-depth story and a fun tap action battle system.
DOLLS, is an idol group in Tokyo, Japan. However, unknown to most people, there are monsters that lie between dimensions called “Pygmalion” that haunt the world. These idols, turn into DOLLS, and battle these pygmalion to save the world. DOLLS are girls who sacrificed their memories and expressions of before they become DOLLS to wield the key to their hearts and be able to wear the ‘gear’ to battle pygmalion.
The story starts with DOLLS fan ‘Sakura’ who went to a live performance. Suddenly, the fragments of a butterfly appears before her and the concert was attacked by pygmalions! Attacking Sakura, she was dying as she uttered her final words. “I don’t want to die.”
Exclaiming that she has yet to do anything about her life, a mysterious voice gives her a second chance in life as she becomes DOLL alongside other DOLLS to fight the pygmalion. Weird enough, she is the only DOLL who lost only her memories and not her expressions.
As the game begins, before all of these happened, Sakura bumps into the player (a male by default). You, the player is also going to the DOLLS concert, but you were also attacked by the pygmalion but was saved. In the end you can see the pygmalion and was taken in to act as the ‘Commanding Officer,’ of the DOLLS, the ‘Master’ of the Dolls House (Dormitory) and the ‘Manager’ of the idols.
We will be providing a short tutorial on how to play the game, click that Read More to continue on! Please be warned that the content below contains a lot of images so it may load slowly for some!
