Heroes are overrated! Everybody loves a sidekick, a supporting character to step up and redeem their skills against villains both big and small. Frodo would never have made it to Mordor without Sam!

The successful Kickstarter is heading to retail via Japanime Games, bringing the streets of Tokyo into peril! As players step up in their roles of sidekicks to save Tokyo City from evil supervillains causing havoc, in Tokyo Sidekick.

Taking inspiration from Japanese comic books, players will have access to a plethora of sidekicks who have their own abilities to flex. And of course, backstories (as it is inspired by comic books - I am presuming the backstory to be tragic!). 2-4 players must work together by taking down villains in the technical city. But as players progress through the game, they will be provided with changes to level up their characters and add new abilities.

This isn't just a title of hack and slash! Whilst chaos takes precedence over the city, the Sidekicks will need to keep an eye on the crime rate hitting the roof, and gain some control and footing before heading to the final stages of the big bad boss.

The title was awarded the Tokyo Game Market award, proving to be an incredibly popular cooperative experience in Japan. Players can head to their FLGS store and online va the Portal Games website to get their pre-orders in, ready for the release later in this quarter of the year.

Will you be able to take down the might supervillains with a mere sidekick before the city is in ruins?
