Anime News: Druaga no Tou anime / MMORPG project site launched, features Ugetsu Hakua designs, Gatou Shouji script

Loosely based on the 1984 Namco arcade classic The Tower of Druaga, The Druaga Project is a multimedia project launched today by Bandai / Namco that consists of a TV anime (The Aegis of Uruk) slated to air in the spring of 2008, and an online game (The Recovery of Babylim) with service scheduled to begin in January. The one piece of design art currently up at the anime page caught my attention, and a look at the staff credits revealed that character designs are being handled by none other than Ugetsu Hakua of Bakuretsu Tenshi fame. Anime direction is from Chigira Kouichi with a script from Gatou Shouji (!!). Production is from Gonzo, but given this talent lineup it seems the cards are stacked for this to be one of their good shows. We’ll be keeping our eyes on the project as further information comes to light. (no more)

[ERO] Game News: Tsuyokiss to recieve a sequel, currently in production

The game that defined the tsundere archetype returns! Officially on sale tomorrow, Core Books brings us a cover image (via Moon Phase) of the November ’07 edition of PUSH magazine, emblazoned prominently upon which is the production announcement of the “SECOND COMING” of Tsuyokiss: Tsuyokiss Ni-gakki (Tsuyokiss Second Term). The original CandySoft release of Tsuyokiss in 2005 was a pivotal moment in the definition of what has since become an iconic character archetype (though it wasn’t invented by the game); what the sequel will do for the tsundere persona is sure to be a topic of interest for moe aesthetes around the world. We’ll keep tabs on this as production moves forward. (no more)
