It’s the morning after April Fool’s day, and in the process of sorting out fact from yesterday’s fiction the first thing that stands out is that Key‘s announcement of their next title, Rewrite, remains unchanged. Given the combination of Tanaka Romeo (Yume Miru Kusuri, Cross Channel, Kana ~ Imouto [supposed], Kazoku Keikaku [supposed]) and Ryukishi07 (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) on scenario duty I thought it was an unlikely project, but it seems they will in fact be collaborating to bring the next Key game to life – which means an exciting new era for the game maker who has seen most of the original writing talent that produced Kanon and Air move away in past years. My fondness for Romeo makes me curious, but the character design makes me want to retch… what to do… we’ll probably drop in on this from time to time in the future, but there are much better resources for news on this sort of thing – there’s already a Wikipedia article, for crying out loud. The Key fandom, it is insane. (no more)
