Tokyo Beat Down is a tale of greed, corruption, and good old-fashion violence.
Experience the sweet nostalgia of classic coin-op beat 'em ups, where you must rely on your fists, firearms, and anything else that happens to be lying around to beat the sin out of Tokyo's criminals. What do you do when thugs and hoodlums put peace and freedom in jeopardy? You beat them down!!
Who has it within them to rise up against the ever growing threat of violence, crime, and terrorism on the streets of Tokyo? Enter the Beast Cops, tireless servants of justice. These men and women struggle night and day for the heart of the city. They'll match any villain punch for punch, kick for kick, bullet for bullet. They're Beast Cops because they will do whatever it takes, pay any price, inflict as much damage as necessary, in order to restore peace and security to the streets of Tokyo.
Captain Takeshi Bando
Tak has been at Yaesu Station for many years, and he's a trusted friend. He's the only man who can keep the other beast cops in line... although sometimes, even his tactics can be a bit excessive.
He's recently gained some weight, and he's a bit sensitive about it. So careful what you say around him!
Fighting style: All-out offense. He hits hard and gets hit hard.
Inspector Jean Saburo
He's an elitist, and his standards are uncompromising. He was sent from main
headquarters, downtown, to ensure the investigations run smoothly.
Others think he definitely does not have what it takes to be a beast cop. That's alright, though; Lewis and Rika'll scare him off soon enough.
