Level-5 Announces New Cross Media Project Megaton-kyū Musashi

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Anime, game, Shonen Jump collaboration, toys planned

Game developer Level-5 announced a new cross media project titled Megaton-kyū Musashi during its "Level-5 Vision 2016 -New Heroes-" presentation on Wednesday. The project includes a television anime, game, collaboration with Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, toys by Bandai, and an internet anime spinoff titled "After School." The company also streamed an animated preview:

The story takes place after 90 percent of humanity wiped out due to an invasion. Survivors live in a shelter where their lives are monitored, and memories of the invasion erased. Three teenagers from the shelter are chosen to pilot three machines that combine to form the Musashi robot, made out of a material named Megatronium alloy. The series will balance robot action with school life.

Each different medium—game, anime, or other—will tell the story from the point of view of a different set of characters.

The cast thus far includes:

Masakazu Morita as Yamato Ichidaiji

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Ryōgo Hijikata

Miyu Irino as Teru Asami

Kaito Ishikawa as Reiji Amemiya and Ayana Taketatsu as Yūka Nishino

Maaya Sakamoto as Sayaka Minami and Miyuki Sawashiro as Queen

The game will be an RPG with multiplayer features.

The project is slated to begin in summer 2017, though Level-5 did no specify if this is the anime, game, or some other aspect of the project.
