New Code Geass Project's Launch Revealed (Update 4)

posted on by Egan Loo
Bandai's mobile phone site promises more details in 2010; comic, music, visual works planned

Bandai's mobile phone website m-pub.channel.or.jp is hosting a graphic that reads as follows:

New Code Geass
Project Launch Green-Lit!

Wait for more info in 2010!!

The image adds that this project represents a "rebirth" and that Geass will take a new step starting today. The message is signed with the name, "ZERO."

In the January 2009 issue of Gakken's Animedia magazine, the Sunrise anime studio indicated the possibility of more plans for its Code Geass science-fiction franchise. Sunrise created and animated the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion television anime series and its R2 sequel. Sunrise did not indicate the format that any hypothetical future plans might take. The Adult Swim television programming block ran Bandai Entertainment's adaptation of the R2 sequel in North America.

Update: More background information added.

Update 2: The website has reverted back to its earlier contents, and the image revealing the new Code Geass project is no longer posted on the main page, even though it is still available by directly accessing its address.

Update 3: The same message that appeared on the mobile website also appears on the franchise's computer website after the main page downloads a Flash interstitial. It was also repeated during Saturday's "Kiseki no Tanjōbi" event. Thanks eaglestorm and Crystal.

Update 4: The franchise's computer website has posted a page devoted to the new project. The page has a message from Code Geass producer Yoshitaka Kawaguchi. According to Kawaguchi, the new project will feature the simultanteous releases of comic series, music, new products under development, and visual works. More details will be revealed in the January issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine, which ships this week.
