Meet the Cast - Tokyo Beat Down - Part 1

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 28, 2009 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today profiled two of the main characters of Tokyo Beat Down™ for Nintendo DS™. It's your typical tale of greed, corruption, terrorism, and good old-fashion violence. Just like any good drama, these Beast Cops make the story with their hilarious tongue-in-cheek humor
while they rely on their fists, firearms, and anything else that happens to be lying around to beat the sin out of evil-doers. You can get to know two of their members below...

"You're so naive... Fists can solve any problem!"

Senior Patrol Officer
Lewis Cannon

He's fearless. He's reckless. He's practically feckless!

Lewis is one of Yaesu Station's finest officers (even if the higher-ups are too embarrassed to admit to it).

Be warned: His bad sense of humor and unorthodox methods can be hard to tolerate at times, but he'll do whatever it takes to bring criminals to justice!

"At least they aren't going easy on me 'cause I'm a girl!"

Patrol Officer
Rika Hyodo

She's as vulgar as she is violent, and her flair for fashion is surpassed only by her flair for tracking down criminals.

The other beast cops like to tease her, but she has no problem keeping them in line.
She may be a woman, but she's more man than you'll ever be!
