Weekly Famitsu's website has begun streaming a new 105-second promotional movie for Arcadia Saga, an online role-playing game from Gonzo Rosso. The movie is also available from the game's official website. (In the linked page, select the "Gallery" option from the bottom menu, and then select the "Movie" option.) Even though the Gonzo anime studio is no longer affiliated with the Gonzo Rosso game company, it produced the animation in the promotional movie. Ryo Mizuno, the creator of Record of Lodoss War, is supervising the game, and Final Fantasy XII composer Hitoshi Sakimoto is responsible for the music.
GDH, the former parent companies of both Gonzo and Gonzo Rosso, had decided to divested itself of Gonzo Rosso in March. Atlus, the game subsidiary of Index Holdings, announced in October that it would acquire 54.6% of Gonzo Rosso for 460 milllion yen (about US$5.1 million).
