Too Kyo Games, the mysterious game companed announced earlier this week, is led by Danganronpa series creator Kazutaka Kodaka, Zero Escape series creator Kotaro Uchikoshi, and other well-known creators, Famitsu reported.

Seven key figures are leading the company:

  • Director / Scenario writer: Kazutaka Kodaka (Danganronpa series)
  • Composer / Arranger: Masfumi Takada (Danganronpa series, 100 Sleeping Princes & the Kingdom of Dreams)
  • Illustrator / Character Designer: Shimadoriru (Danganronpa series, Fate/Grand Order)
  • Director / Scenario Writer: Takumi Nakazawa (Ever17, Root Double)
  • Novelist / Scenario Writer: Youichirou Koizumi (Break-kun Core, Ultra Despair Hagakure)
  • Director / Scenario Writer: Kotaro Uchikoshi (Zero Escape series)

“The object of this company is to do something new, which is the creation of a new IP commonly known all over the world and in a future we will make indie games by ourselves,” Kazutaka Kodaka said in a statement. “This new company enables us to move freely towards the goal.”

Four new projects are currently underway at Too Kyo Games. Here is a piece of concept art and bit of information about each project:

Project #1 (Game)
“A Game with a Kodaka x Uchikoshi Joint Scenario! ‘Limit’ x ‘Despair.'”

Too Kyo Games

A video game that all creators of Too Kyo Games will concentrate their abilities on. The genre has not revealed yet. Kodaka and Uchikoshi will make the scenario together.

Project #2 (Anime)

“Everyone is a Villain.”

Too Kyo Games

An anime in collaboration with Studio Pierrot. The original author is Kodaka and the character designer is Komatsuzaki. They will depict the image of action films in the 1990s such as Pulp Fiction and The Professional.

Project #3 (Game)

“A Children’s Death Game, By Children, for Children.”

Too Kyo Games

An action adventure game by Kodaka as a general manager, Uchikoshi as a scenario writer, and Nakazawa as a director. The concept art drawn by Take (illustrator, known for Tawagoto) represents school children playing death game. It is very shocking.

Project #4 (Game)

“A Spike Chunsoft x Too Kyo Games Dark Fantasy-Esque Mystery.”

Too Kyo Games

Collaboration of the development team of Danganronpa and Spike Chunsoft. Kodaka actually started this project before his retirement of Spike Chunsoft. We imagine a kind of cyberpunk world from this art. Komatsuzaki designs the characters, Shimadoriru designs background, and Takada directs the sounds.
