The game is based on a Japanese manga series. Unlike the other Shadowrun video games, which play in Seattle and surrounding areas, this game plays in Japan. There are no orcs and trolls because Japan exiles them. Like the original game, it uses six-sided dice rolls for a turn-based combat—conflict resolution system.
