posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
An official Twitter account opened on Friday to announce that the Code Geass franchise is getting a game project. A website for the project has also launched and features a logo and copyright credit for DMM Games.
Five large public screens across Akihabara in Tokyo such as the Akihabara UDX will screen a three-minute video about the project on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. JST (4:00 a.m. EDT).
Sunrise revealed last month that the Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (English subtitle: Re;surrection) sequel anime film project will be one film that will premiere in February. Director Goro Taniguchi confirmed that many of the key staff members are returning for the movie, and specifically emphasized that the story will be complete in one film, which will serve as a finale.
The first film in the series' compilation recap trilogy, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Kōdō (lit.: The Awakening Path, official English subtitle: Initiation), opened in Japan in October 2017. The second film, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Handō (lit.: The Rebellion Path, official English subtitle: Transgression), opened in Japan in February. The third film, Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Ōdō (lit.: The Imperial Path, official English subtitle: Glorification), opened in May.
Funimation has licensed the trilogy.
The original Code Geass television series premiered in 2006, followed by a sequel series in 2008. The series has inspired various manga and original video anime, including the Code Geass: Akito the Exiled spinoff, which premiered in 2012.
