Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs has landed on Steam, which marks the first time that Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is available for PC owners. Having previously played the Vita version, we looked at what’s new.
The short answer there is “not too much”. The PC version of Daybreak: Special Gigs is identical in content to the Playstation 4 version, which is of course no big surprise. The fact that the controls are gamepad-focused also isn’t, but perhaps the on-screen prompts for an Xbox controller are. Better mouse/keyboard support would have been nice for PC-users, but perhaps that will be included in a future update.
Playing Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs at high resolutions is great, but not without problems. The quality and style of the visuals is still one of the most interesting examples within the visual novel genre, but the graphics don’t all scale well at higher resolutions – images can be off-center, so we resorted to playing at a lower resolution instead to work around this problem. Again, something we hope will be fixed in a future update.
As a result, the game feels like it could have used a bit more time in the oven before its PC release. That’s a shame, because despite its shortcomings (read our Vita review for more) the game still has a very unique setting that’s worthy of a better implementation.
