CyberConnect2 has a pretty major game coming out in just a few weeks. The company has been known for working on major manga / anime properties like Naruto and Dragon Ball, but will soon be releasing Fuga: Melodies of Steel. In addition to being a new entry in the Little Tail Bronx series, it’s also the very first self-published title from CyberConnect2.

We recently spoke with Yoann Gueritot to talk about Fuga: Melodies of Steel and the company’s first foray into self-publishing. You can read our full discussion below.

With Fuga: Melodies of Steel releasing in just a few weeks, we were able to speak with creative director Yoann Gueritot. Fans are likely aware that the game is set in the same universe as the other Little Tail Bronx titles, Solatorobo and Tail Concerto.

Over the years, there have been plenty of requests for CyberConnect2 to re-release or remake those previous titles. Gueritot addressed the possibility again while speaking with Nintendo Everything.
