Viz Media has previously published gaming adaptations of massively popular franchises like Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda, and so many anime and manga series that it’s difficult to keep count. The company has teamed up with indie developer Rose City Games to publish its first game, the very first addition to its portfolio, The World Next Door.The World Next Door is a supernatural action game with character designs and artwork from illustrator Lord Gris, and it has a decidedly anime-flavored look to it. The narrative-driven game follows a young girl named Jun who’s meant explore a parallel world that’s positively chock-full of magical creatures.The game will pair indie and anime game sensibilities with an “eclectic” cast of characters and a healthy dose of intrigue and mystery peppered throughout. It’s difficult to get a feel for what kind of game it’ll be exactly, but it sounds like a breath of fresh air. It’ll be releasing on PC eventually, and Viz is planning on releasing two additional games developed by Rose City Games in the next few years.If you’re an indie developer looking to get your start in the business, you may want to reach out to Viz Media, as the company is currently accepting inquiries for games looking for the right publisher, from developers who have just started work on their project or even with completed titles in general. Personally, I’m looking forward to Rose City Games’ first release, as it has an intriguing color palette and attractive character designs.Hopefully, we’ll get a better look at the game as the developer continues to work on the title for release. It’s probably going to blow us away.last_img
