Cool eye patch, girl.
The stunning fifth and final episode of Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace anthology made its debut on PlayStation 3 in Japan today. I'm all kinds of jealous right now.
A sidescrolling action game, Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day comes by way of Grasshopper Manufacture and Namco Bandai, boasting a talented collection of developers, including the likes of Suda 51, Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka, Tokyo Jungle director Yohei Kataoka, and Fire Emblem: Awakening illustrator Yusuke Kozaki. Yeah, they're kind of a big deal.
Still no official word on a localized release, but Namco seems to be entertaining the idea. The publisher's European division registered a domain for the title last autumn, so at least there's hope. Now go make some noise about this lovely-looking game and force the company's hand.
