Bandai Namco Games streamed the first trailer for its new Short Peace game, Tsukigime Ranko no Ichiban Nagai Hi (Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day), on Monday. The game is a 2D scrolling action game that will serve as the "fifth part" of Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace compilation anime film project.

Gōichi Suda or "Suda 51" (No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, Liberation Maiden, Killer is Dead) and Yōhei Kataoka (Tokyo Jungle) are overseeing the development of the game. Suda 51 is handling the game's scenario, and Kataoka is directing the game and handling the game design and artwork. Daisuke Uchiyama is serving as chief producer, and Makoto Asanuma is serving as executive producer.

The game's story centers on a woman named Ranko Tsukigime, the only daughter of the head of the "Tsukigime Enterprise" underground conglomerate that controls the rented parking lot business. Ranko is a normal, brazen high school girl during the day, and at night she works as an assassin. One day Ranko stakes out her target as normal, but a "demon" from an opposing organization sneaks up on her. Players control Ranko as she escapes from the opposing organization, and as she kills her enemies with "effects."

The game features character designs by Yuusuke Kozaki, Akihiko Yoshida, Tadayuki Nomaru, Daisuke Sajiki, and Rie Suzuki. Akira Yamaoka is the sound director, while Tetsuya Yoshinaga and Hiroyuki Nakatsuka are serving as the main designer and programmer, respectively.
