Toei Animation To Step Up PC And Switch Game Development
More game adaptations for popular anime are expected.
- Toei Animation will develop more titles for PC and Nintendo Switch.
- A new entry is to be announced this Summer or Fall.
- The studio is working on a project that will adapt one of its most popular anime.
Toei Animation is planning to make waves in PC and Switch game development for their notable anime titles. A new entry is set for an announcement this summer or fall. Yasuhiro Nagata and Ryotaro Ueno, members of Toei Animation Digital Product Promotion Office, were recently interviewed by Famitsu. A forum shared the details from the said interview; the translation of the document reads,
We want to try our hand at the Switch, PC, etc,” and we plan to release titles that are popular with our customers in the summer or fall.”
Initially, Toei Animation focused on the development of anime games for mobile devices and released a few entries. However, now they want to set foot in new waters and expand into developing more PC and Switch entries. Furthermore, they also wish to “actively exhibit at events such as TGS 2023.”
At first, I was thinking mainly about mobile, but I want to challenge what I can do such as Switch and Steam. Toei Animation has many works that have not been serviced, sold, or made into a game, so I would like to expand it even more.”
Toei Animation is not new to developing games on PC and Nintendo consoles. Previously, they have developed multiple Dragon Ball, One Piece, and Digimon entries for various mediums before planning to expand their horizons now.
Speculations are being made for the upcoming mysterious title, which is reportedly set for an announcement. Sailor Moon, Hokuto no Ken, World Trigger, and Slam Dunk are strong contenders to get a game adaptation based on their popularity in fandom.
