Fuga: Melodies of Steel

As part of a recent Q&A with CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama, an update was provided on the company’s “Trilogy of Vengeance” games.

Fuga: Melodies of Steel, which was first announced at the very start of 2018, “good news” should be coming soon. As for Tokyo Ogre Gate and Cecile, development hasn’t actually started yet.

Matsuyama stated:

“Concerning Fuga: Melodies of Steel, like for another one of CyberConnect2’s important series, Little Tail Bronx, this game is set in a world where the characters have animal features such as ears and muzzle. So in this game too you fight in this unique world, similar to Tail Concerto and Solatorobo. So there is a connection there, and Fuga can be seen as the most recent installment of this kind of games, but it’s also different since this one is an RPG in which you play children travelling in a tank. We will probably be able to share good news about this game soon, so please look forward to these new developments!

Concerning Tokyo Ogre Gate and Cecile, we haven’t assigned people specifically to the development of these games yet. We are instead working on them incrementally, so the people who planned this game, as well as parts of the programmer and artist teams, are slowly working on specific parts of the game, like the scenario and design, and creating game specifications. Depending on the project, we already have the main visuals. We’re working on these projects gradually, but we will be gradually releasing information on our progress as we keep moving forward.

Tokyo Ogre Gate is set in the Taisho period, but merges the Taisho setting with steampunk influences, creating a unique world. The faster you go, the bigger the impact of your attack, is one of the one of the characteristics of this parkour action game. I think it’ll be a very edgy project.

For Cecile, more than being a kind of hack-and-slash, I would describe it as a fighting game. In this game Cecile must get revenge and kill her four sisters, so this is definitely an action game, but for this game too, we want to make something that has the CyberConnect2 flare to it, and you can expect some surprises. So I hope you’ll be looking forward to it.”
