VIZ Media and Rose City Games Team Up for Narrative Driven Games


Anime/manga powerhouse VIZ Media has recently teamed up with Rose City Games in order to jumpstart the creation of a new line of original, narrative-driven games that showcase new and distinctive voices from the indie games realm, with the goal of introducing fresh new ideas to VIZ Media’s pop culture savvy audience.

One of the first titles to have been born from this partnership is titled The World Next Door, which is a supernatural action adventure game that features anime-inspired character designs by illustrator Lord Gris.

“It’s no secret that anime and manga fans love video games,” said Brad Woods, Chief Marketing Officer, VIZ Media. ”We’re excited to be able to bring an entirely new offering to our audience. VIZ Media has always been fan-first, and the team at Rose City is the perfect fit for developing games that our audience will love.”

The World Next Door is described as being largely story-driven and focuses on a character named Jun, who is a rebellious teen girl trapped in a parallel world full of magical creatures. The game takes its cue from the emotional storytelling and thrilling action of both anime and indie games, as the player meet and develop friendships with an eclectic cast of characters while uncovering the mysteries hidden within this world.

The World Next Door is currently still under production, but a PC release has been confirmed. For more details, you can visit the official site.
