VIDEO: “New World” RPG Brings Some “.hack” Flavor to Smartphones

CyberConnect2—the studio behind games like the Naruto fighters, .hack series, and Asura’s Wrath—is working on a game with Bandai Namco called New World. While this is a new project, it pulls from the setting and concept of the .hack games, with character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion, .hack), and it’s just one part of a bigger picture called Project N.U.


New World Vol. 1: Maiden of Silver Tears will make its debut this year in Japan as a free-to-play RPG on iOS and Android, and you can see the first gameplay footage below.
