PS4 Exclusive City Shrouded in Shadow Lets You Play a Lesbian Heroine; More Ultraman Revealed

In Granzella's City Shrouded in Shadow you can play a heroine in a relationship with another lady, and escape from a ton of Ultraman characters.

Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu came with a spread focusing on Bandai Namco and Granzella’s crazy survival game City Shrouded in Shadow.

Interestingly we get to see a selection screen from the beginning of the game, in which not only you get to select the gender of your protagonist, but also how he or she feels about the heroine that will accompany him or her. We have to squint a lot to read them, but the four options available are “she is my friend,” “she is very important to me,” “she is my lover,” and “I don’t know her very well.”

Since the screenshot showcases the options after a female heroine has been selected, looks like we’re able to play a woman in a homosexual relationship, if we so choose. As far as we know, there is no gender choice for the heroine that will accompany us, which means that the option to play a homosexual male is probably not available.

On top of that, we also get the reveal of more giant Ultraman characters that will wreak havoc in the city. To be more precise, they’re Ultraman Taro, Ultraman Zero and Ultraman Belial.

You can check out the images below, but do keep in mind that they come from magazine scans, so the quality is rather low.

If you want to see more, you can also watch a recent trailer, some more screenshots, and 35 minutes of gameplay.

Cty Shrouded in Shadow will release in Japan on October 19th, exclusively for PS4.
