Sony, Shogakukan, Aniplex Collaborate on 'Kids no Hoshi Project'

Project aims to expand PlayStation, Coro Coro Comics character brands

Sony revealed during its PlayStation press conference on Tuesday that it is launching a new "Kids no Hoshi Project" (Kids' Star Project) to expand PlayStation character brands, as well as brands from Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comic magazine. Aside from Coro Coro Comic, the project will also collaborate with Aniplex. ForwardWorks, the company that Sony established in April to make apps for mobile devices and smartphones based on PlayStation games and characters, is working on the project.

Sony will announce more details on the project at a later date.

Sony CEO Kaz Hirai told the Financial Times newspaper earlier this month that it is "aggressively getting into" mobile gaming, citing the success of Niantic Labs' Pokémon Go game.
