posted on by Kim Morrissy
3D anime studio Sanzigen (Kill la Kill, Promare) are credited for animating the 3D cutscenes in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The cutscenes were directed and storyboarded by Takashi Sano (Sengoku Basara: End of Judgement, Transformers: Energon). Takuya Chanohara (Kill la Kill key animator) was the character designer and animation director. Ryosuke Ishida was the 3DCG supervisor and CG animation director. Hiroshi Adachi was the modeling director.
Sanzigen was founded in 2003, and incorporated in 2006 by former Gonzo employees (including current CEO Hiroaki Matsuura) as a studio specializing in CGI animation. In 2016 it established a new studio in Nagoya with the stated goal of making its "cel-look" 3D CG animation more well-known worldwide.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses launched for the Nintendo Switch on Friday. Nintendo first announced in January 2017 that it was working on a Fire Emblem game for Switch. The game is the first Fire Emblem console game since 2007's Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.
