Wright Flyer Studios has announced Shin Shoumetsu Toshi Project, the tentatively titled first 3D, Unreal Engine 4-powered entry in its flagship “drama action RPG” series. Platform(s) and release window were not announced.
Here is a message from Wright Flyer Studios on the project, via its official website:
The direction we’re aiming for is simple.
“We want to deliver the highest ‘drama experience.'”
The experience of feeling the trembling hearts of the people who live there, while traveling together and becoming part of the story.
That, frankly, is our goal.
We want everything to be a “drama experience”—not only cutscenes, but movement and battle as well.
A new surprise to the people of the world.
What is the drama we want to convey now?
This project is our own and started from when we reconsidered that.
To deliver this drama experience, we are using the Unreal Engine 4 game engine.
As Wright Flyer Studios’ flagship title, we are continuing our journey with newly gathered friends.
In addition to Shin Shoumetsu Toshi Project, a new smartphone entry in the series called Shoumetsu Toshi: Drama RPG MIX was announced. While detailed information was not shared, it will be a completely standalone title from the currently available Shoumetsu Toshi 2.
Outside of the game-related news, a 12-episode TV anime was announced. Its scenario is being handled by Wright Flyer Studios, while production is by Madhouse and music by Pony Canyon. Visit the official website here.
The original Shoumetsu Toshi first launched for smartphones on May 26, 2014 in Japan. Shoumetsu Toshi 2 launched as an update to the original game on November 17, 2016.
