Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is a game that is being developed with Shuuhou Imai (director of Tokyo Majin) and Tomio Kanazawa (co-creator of Deadly Premonition) at the helm. The game is being published by Arc System Works and developed by Toybox, the guys currently working on Hometown Story.
Unlike the adorable Hometown Story though, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters looks pretty scary, and will progress in the form of episodes instead of an open world experience. The game will be equal parts living daily life and both preparing to trap ghosts and actually hunting ghosts.

In case the animated portraits/dialogue looked like a visual novel, the game actually is considered half visual novel, half battle sequences. Character designs are being handled by former Nitroplus illustrator Chinatsu Kurahana. The game has more talent with Nobuo Uematsu and The Key Project, who will be doing the opening theme and music for the game.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is coming sometime next year to Playstation 3 and Vita.
