Nagoya TV, Lotus Collaborate on 'Ninja Vampire' Concept With Yoshitaka Amano Designs
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Nagoya TV and Lotus, Inc. announced on Tuesday that they are collaborating to develop an original property titled "Ninja Vampire" that is intended for overseas markets. Renowned artist Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy series, Vampire Hunter D, The Heroic Legend of Arslan novels) is drawing the visuals and the concept art.
The story will begin with the journey of a vassal of Date Masamune, who traveled to Italy and Spain. The expedition 400 years ago gave birth to a new species called "ninja vampire," who are then resurrected in the modern age. Unaffected by the Cross, holy water, or garlic, the ninja vampires fight a war with the old vampires and humanity using their AI and the latest technology.
Lotus, Inc. will showcase the concept at this year's MIPCOM television industry trade show, which will take place in Cannes, France on October 17-20. The companies plan to market the property as a potential animated television series, live-action project, and other media.
