Takara Tomy launched the website last month with an image featuring the Lion-type Zoid Shield Liger and a male soldier. The website also features the text, "a new ZOIDS project has started!". Video game news website Famitsu reported on Friday that the site will reveal new news "in a few days."
Tomy launched the Zoids science-fiction mecha franchise as a model kit line in 1983. Michiro Ueyama drew a 14-volume manga series for the franchise in 1999-2001 that Viz Media released in English under the title Zoids: Chaotic Century in 2002-2003. The manga inspired the ZOIDS: Chaotic Century TV anime series that aired in 1999-2000 and Viz Media released on home video. Three more anime series followed: Zoids/ZERO in 2001, Zoids: Fuzors in 2003-2004, and Zoids Genesis in 2005-2006. Cartoon Network aired Zoids: Chaotic Century, Zoids/ZERO, and part of Zoids: Fuzors.
The franchise has also inspired a line of video game series for consoles, handheld consoles, PC, arcades, and mobile phones.
