Excerpted from the ICV2 webpage:
AIA, a new game company founded by videogame industry veteran Yoshiaki Kanazawa, is preparing an Akira videogame for the Sony Playstation 2. The Akira game will be out in August, just a few weeks after the release of the remastered Akira video and DVD. Other Akira merchandise includes the McFarlane Toys second series of Anime toys, featuring Akira, shipping to retailers in September. And Dark Horse will have three volumes of the English version of the original manga series out by the time the Akira video hits the shelves on July 24th.

The Akira videogame is said to take full advantage of the three-dimensional potential of the Playstation 2 format. The Akira offering will be only the second game created by AIA, whose first offering is the popular Illbleed game for the Sega Dreamcast platform. Yoshiaki Kanazawa, the founder of AIA, founded, owned, and operated Jaleco Co. Ltd. one of Japan's leading game developers. Mr. Kanazawa recently sold Jaleco and its U.S. subsidiary, Jaleco USA, and reentered the game market with AIA, which opened its doors on April 1st of this year.
