posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kadokawa's Famitsu.com website is previewing this week's issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine with news that the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 anime is getting a smartphone game. The game is titled Uchū Senkan Yamato 2199 ~Saigo no Kibō 365~ (Space Battleship Yamato 2199 ~Last Hope 365~).
The game will retain the same world view and characters as the anime, but will allow players to strengthen and improve the Yamato as they fend of the Gamilas fleet.
This week's Weekly Famitsu magazine issue will reveal more details on Thursday.
The Space Battleship Yamato 2199 anime re-imagines the Yoshinobu Nishizaki and Leiji Matsumoto's Space Battleship Yamato 1974 anime, dubbed and partially re-written in the United States as Star Blazers. The re-imagining was shown theatrically in Japan in 2012 and 2013, and as a television series in 2013. The series received a compilation film and the Uchū Senkan Yamato 2199: Hoshi-Meguru Hakobune film that tells a new story. The re-imagining is inspiring a sequel seven-part film series titled Uchū Senkan Yamato 2202: Ai no Senshi-tachi (Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love or Star Blazers 2202: Warriors of Love). The first film opened in Japan on February 25, and the second film will open on June 24.
