Game and anime receive a brand refresh

At this weekend’s AnimeJapan 2023 expo, publisher Bandai Namco announced a slight rebranding of its upcoming mech adventure, Synduality, which will now be titled Synduality: Echo of Ada. The third-person action RPG is currently in development for PC and Gen 9 consoles.

Originally announced during the fall 2022 State of Play presentation, Synduality: Echo of Ada, sees a young woman, existing in a polluted and dystopian future, who makes a living by gathering resources from the inhospitable atmosphere of Amasia. Guiding an A.I. mech, (or “Cradle Coffin”), through the poisonous terrain, players must fight off not only predatory creatures, but also other human players, in a race to bring home the lion’s share of precious “AO crystals”.

A Synduality anime, exploring the lore of the world and its characters, is also in the works. This project has been newly rechristened Synduality: Noir and is expected to premiere in July of this year. A new trailer, which you can check out above, features new footage from the animated series. The video is soundtracked by the anime’s theme song “Raytracer”, as performed by artist Stereo Dive Foundation.

Synduality will launch on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X later in 2023.
