CyberConnect2 is one of the most reputable studios when it comes to video game adaptations of intellectual properties from Japanese comics and the anime. Hiroshi Matsuyama, President and CEO of the Japanese study, said on December 31 in the broadcast Piro-Live! New Yeark’s Eve Special 2022 that will announce a game in february to capture the attention of the players.
Matsuyama, according to the translation of the medium Gematsu, said the new title “I will definitely make people talk” and promised to “be something to shake the world.” Also, I anticipated that they plan to launch that game around the summer 2022. No further details were given: no publisher (their games are usually distributed by Bandai Namco and Aniplex, both with an extensive catalog of licenses from the manganime), ni gnero, ni plataformas.
It is not the only thing the Japanese studio is working on. The firm is preparing something to celebrate in June the 20th anniversary of the saga .hack, the transmedia project with videogames, animation series, comics, light novels and other products that are developed in the universe The World, a fictional MMORPG. They also announced that a series with real actors from Chaser Game for the fall of 2023.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is approaching 5 million
The CyberConnect2 CEO also shared updated global sales figures from the latest company launches. Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles has exceeded 1,32 million units sold. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, re-released this year on Nintendo Switch, has been over 4.5 million of copies. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 carries 8,7 million units.
Although most of CyberConnect2’s works are based on foreign intellectual properties, the firm also has its own works. It is the case of the series Little Tail Bronx, a role-playing game with turn-based combat that in 2021 released its fourth installment for computer and consoles: Fuga: Melodies of Steel.
