Hybrid disc release with the game and Short Peace anime film coming in January.
In addition, the anime's PlayStation 3 video game, titled Yukigimi Ranko no Ichiban Nagai Hi (Ranko Yukigimi's Longest Day), will ship in Japan on January 16 for 6,980 yen (about US$70). The 2D scrolling game tells the story of the fifth short in Short Peace, which was not included in the anime film. (The game's disc will contain the full anime film as well.) The story follows the unreal daily life of three high school girls, one of whom happens to be an assassin. Gōichi "Suda51" Suda (No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw) and Yōhei Kataoka (Tokyo Jungle) are developing the game.
Yeah they confirmed it the other day. There's actually trailer footage of the game's anime FMVs and a tiny bit of gameplay here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ihx5...tailpage#t=183
I'm only making this thread because Nirolak asked me to!
So apparently the magazine leaks from Japan this week started early, and there's a surprise announcement for the PS3.
Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace anime omnibus film opens on July 20 in Japan, and it features a collection of 4 short films by by 4 different directors. This game is considered the 5th entry in that collection. It will be directed by Yohei Kataoka and written by Suda51. The game is described as a "2D side scrolling high speed effect action game" where you defeat enemies using effects. The setting is modern day Japan.
