Nanopunk:Tokyo is a 10-day, high-roleplaying Assassin game based on Japanese pop culture and previous Nanopunk games run by the MIT Assassins' Guild. The game is set in Geo-Tokyo, a gigantic, hermetic underground city in Japan, 2089, where advanced nanotechnology combined with traditional martial arts have turned the streets into a dangerous urban jungle where gang members, hackers and shadowrunners rule by strength and honor. 10-foot-tall mechs move between the rugged cavern walls and the city streets, past Shinto and Buddhist temples, nightclubs, factories and towering buildings.
