Recommended Videos

Anime fighting game developers Arc System Works have released a video sending gratitude and good wishes to their fans at the start of 2018, which is set to be one of the company’s most successful years in some time.

In the light-hearted, slightly goofy vid, ArcSys CEO Minoru Kidooka, COO Daisuke Ishiwatari, and Development Director Toshimichi Mori, thank fans for their support throughout 2017 and speak of the company’s growth from a small, three-person studio to the industry giants behind such titles as BlazBlue, Guilty Gear and Persona 4: Arena. As part of the company’s 30th anniversary, ArcSys will hold a celebratory “festival” in May 2019, although no details are given as to what this event will entail.

2018 is set to be a grand year for the studio. Having recently opened offices in the U.S, ArcSys will no doubt be preparing for the release of the fantastic Dragon Ball FighterZ on January 26, while continuing work on crossover title BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, expected to release later this year.
