It’s been over two years since Level-5 announced their big cross-media, mecha-filled project Megaton Musashi. We’ve learned (via Ryokutya2089) the company is now finally going to share more for the project with us.
The developer will share new info on the project at this year’s Jump Festa, which runs from December 21st to the 23rd. Per our previous report, the project will include a TV anime, a multiplayer action RPG, and a toy-line.
Here’s a brief rundown on the new project:
Following Yo-kai Watch and The Snack World, Megaton Musashi was announced as the fifth cross-media project for Level-5. Its concept is ‘the combination of classic robot stories and school mysteries.’ While action battles among robots are featured, there will be a thrilling suspense-drama in the schools the protagonists attend. Unlike previous cross-media titles where the same or similar story is rolled out across different media platforms, Level-5 will try a new method of multiple points of view for each platform. By doing so, one big story will be told through different characters, so audiences can either enjoy each individual narrative on its own or the entire story through all platforms. Bandai has already been chosen as its master toy partner in Japan, and Level-5 is looking to create another strong entertainment ecosystem. Its rollout plan outside of Japan is yet to be determined.
