posted on by Jennifer Sherman
CyberConnect2 revealed three new vengeance-themed games as part of its "Next Plan" project strategy that the company announced on Thursday. The "Trilogy of Vengeance" project's games, which are part of the company's "C5" (CyberConnect Creative Challenge Competition) project, are Fuga (Senjō no Fugue), Tokyo Ogre Gate (Tokyo Hyakkimon), and Cecile. All of the games features vengeance as one of their themes.
Fuga is a 20th-anniversary title for the Little Tail Bronx series. Besides vengeance, the game's themes are war and kemono. The action strategy role-playing game centers on 11 children who are the only survivors from an attack on their village. They set out in the giant tank Taranis, a mysterious weapon from an ancient civilization. The children aim to rescue their families from the Berman Empire, an evil fascist regime with advanced weapons technology.
Tokyo Ogre Gate features "high-speed parkour-style slashing action." Besides vengeance, the game's themes are schoolgirl and steampunk. The game's story centers on the heroine Towako Mutsu and her nemesis Genshu Kubizuka. Towako loses her friends and receives a deadly wound in the Kubizuka incident. She survives after receiving a heart created with mysterious technology known as Ogre Engine. Towako vows revenge against Kubizuka, a man who betrayed Japan and the world. He summons Ogre Gates that link this world to hell. Kubizuka hopes to attain Hakumen Konmo, a dark power surpassing that of nuclear weaponry.
Cecile features "2.5D side-scrolling ultra-fun witch action." Besides vengeance, the game's themes are gothic lolitas and witches. The story centers on four sisters whose mother calls them to an old castle on the night of a full moon. The sisters' mother steals what is most precious to the girls and turn them into witches. Cecile, the youngest sister, vows revenge against her mother after losing her singing voice and becoming mute. Her sister Carla loses her voluptuous body and is cursed to live as a child who never ages. Rezalia once loved to dance, but she loses her legs. Aristel becomes a sinner after losing her husband who was king. Cecille transforms her umbrella into various shapes in her quest for vengeance.
The games are not yet in development, and CyberConnect2 is holding mass recruitment for artists, engineers, and programmers to work on the projects. CyberConnect2 plans to develop and publish more original properties over the next ten years.
In addition, CyberConnect2 announced that it is providing "extensive assistance" to TriF Studio for Sae Okamoto's Mecha-Ude short anime project. The project revealed the main cast members and a promotional video last month.
CyberConnect2 also revealed that it is currently planning projects for its "A5" original anime project. The project's title stands for "Astonishing, Ambitious, Advanced, Amazing, Animation."
