Cross media project was announced in 2016

Game developer Level-5 began streaming a new video for its Megaton-kyū Musashi cross media project on Tuesday. The video first debuted at the Jump Festa 2018 event over the weekend.

The project includes a television anime, game, collaboration with Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, toys by Bandai, and an internet anime spinoff titled "After School." Level-5 announced the project in 2016, initially with a planned start time of summer 2017.

The story takes place after 90 percent of humanity wiped out due to an invasion. Survivors live in a shelter where their lives are monitored, and memories of the invasion erased. Three teenagers from the shelter are chosen to pilot three machines that combine to form the Musashi robot, made out of a material named Megatronium alloy. The series will balance robot action with school life.

Each different medium—game, anime, or other—will tell the story from the point of view of a different set of characters.

The cast thus far includes:

Masakazu Morita as Yamato Ichidaiji

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Ryōgo Hijikata

Miyu Irino as Teru Asami

Kaito Ishikawa as Reiji Amemiya and Ayana Taketatsu as Yūka Nishino

Maaya Sakamoto as Sayaka Minami and Miyuki Sawashiro as Queen

The game will be an RPG with multiplayer features.
