Today Namco Bandai Games revealed new details on Combustible, the second movie (out of four) in the Short Peace saga. Combustible is apparently directed by Katsuhiro Otomo, the same guy who created Akira and Steamboy. It's going to be about a merchants daughter, an impossible love story and a burning 18th century Edo. Sounds exiting!
For all those who do now know, the Short Peace saga consist of 4 short Anime movies, topped of by Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Days, a game by Suda51 that takes place last in that timeline. It is about Ranko Tsukigime who is a normal schoolgirl....except hat she assassinates people at night. Throw in an organization that dabbles in demon business, and we have a winner!!
Personally I can't wait for the Short Peace saga to be released. 4 movies and a game is a pretty good deal.
I look forward to it so much that I have decided to stream gameplay from Ranko Tsukigime's longest day, the same day I get it sent to my door. When is that you ask? Well, the game is set for a release in Europe and Eurasia Spring 2014 for PlayStation 3, so it should not be to far off. I will watch the movies and stream the game on release day, right here on Gamigon Live! Have a look at the trailer below for some in game animation and side-scrolling action footage:
I can't wait for another Suda game! Are you guys excited as well?
