    revolvers.

    SEGA has teased the announcement of a new game today, with the reveal of Re:volvers8, a game that appears to be an RTS. A Japanese website for the game has gone live, showing off some of the major production staff, which includes Masayoshi Kikuchi (Director of Jet Set Radio, producer of Yakuza) as producer, Koji Igarashi (Director of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night) as a character designer, and Yasunori Mitsuda (composer for Chrono Trigger, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Inazuma Eleven) as the composer. A full game reveal will occur on October 11th at 6 am ET.

    Even if the game isn't any good, the potential soundtrack already has me interested. Seems like they have some solid talent in the mix.

    Interesting group for this project, but this could be one of those situations where no matter how good the actors, sometimes the movie still sucks.

    Keeping my figures crossed!

    Don't be silly. It's an ITS. An Iga Time Strategy Game.

    With a title and font like that, you'd expect the game to be, like, dunno, a sorta tps-beat 'em up like Bayonetta with Killer 7 aesthetics.

    Source? The japanese teaser website doesn’t say anything about RTS.

    I don't know what the hell is IGA doing on an RTS, but oh well, it could be an interesting development.
    And worst case scenario, with Mistuda on board, I would just buy it even if only for the OST.

    One day, Koji Igarashi went for a walk after a hard day of working on Bloodstained.
    He met Yasunori Mitsuda by coincidence.
    He also met Masayoshi Kikuchi on the way back to the apartment.

    It is in the source.

    リアルタイムストラテジー = Riaru taimu sutoratejii = Real Time Strategy

    Next time, try harder when you're going to spread salt around.

    “Riaru taimu sutoratejii” is literally just “real time strategy” in English with a written accent.
    God, I love Japanese.

    The title is funny too: リボルバーズエイト = riborubaazu eito = Revolvers Eight. (EDIT: for those wondering, b = v sometimes... lol)

    I kind of messed with my reading when all the Japanese Characters are the same size. Instead of this へッ, yours read like this instead ヘツ
    The "tsu" was the same size as the "he" it threw me off for a moment.
