Here’s the full rundown:

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.

CyberConnect2’s long-awaited turn-based strategy RPG finally has a release date. The game will release for Switch on July 29, the studio announced today.

Here’s a story overview:

It’s been a long wait for Fuga: Melodies of Steel. The game, which was announced as part of CyberConnect2’s “Trilogy of Vengeance” projects over three years ago, still hasn’t released. There also hasn’t been many updates from the developer as of late.

Fortunately, we’re due for news very soon. CyberConnect2 has confirmed that a “big announcement” is dropping on June 14 at 12 PM in Japan. That converts to the following times in other parts of the world:

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:

When Fuga: Melodies of Steel launches on Switch in early 2020, it won’t be a digital-only title on the eShop. CyberConnect 2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama confirmed in a Q&A video that a physical version is in the works as well for the strategy RPG.

Matsuyama noted that the company is “currently discussing with potential partners to find the best match” on the production of a physical version. There are plans to offer boxed copies “for all countries and regions”.

Fuga will no longer be making its original fall 2019 release window. At Anime Expo 2019, developer CyberConnect2 confirmed that the Little Tail Bronx successor will now launch in 2020.

Fuga also has a final name. With its added subtitle, it will be known as Fuga: Melodies of Steel.

CyberConnect2 first started the Little Tail Bronx series with Tail Concerto on the PlayStation back in 1998. Then in 2010, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter came to DS. Fuga on the Battlefield will see the franchise return once again next summer.
