Renowned Japanese publisher, Shueisha has announced their subsidiary Shueisha Games. The publisher is famous for their work like Weekly Shonen Jump, One Piece, and Jujutsu Kaisen. Now the new subsidiary Shueisha Games is aimed at bringing some of the world’s renowned manga to games through various active collaborations with game creators, novelists, and manga artists.
Shueisha Games aims to bring its popular manga into games
Over the past few years, the trend of bringing manga into games has seen a significant rise, with a lot of anime fans turning towards games to experience their favorite manga and at the same time play it as well. Shueisha is already successful in this genre with its titles, so this new subsidiary raises the expectations of the audience.
The decision seems to be a very well-planned one as Shueisha Games already has 4 titles listed for release. ONI, Ukiyo, The Tower of Children, Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions are the titles listed for release by Shueisha Games, but as of now, there is no information about the platforms or the exact dates of the release.
ONI is a Japanese folk manga where Sorata, an ogre, and his partner, Kazamaru set out on an adventure to defeat Momotaro. On the other hand, Ukiyo is a cyberpunk-style manga amidst the fast-moving Japanese lifestyle. The Tower of Children, a Japanese manga based on a rogue survival adventure, and lastly, Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimension, a manga where a shy boy named Damien fights alongside Shonen Jump+ heroes in his imaginary world.
Shueisha Games to discover and encourage new creators
Also with Shueisha Games, the company aims to further boost the process of discovery and encouragement of new creators with the creators camp. It was created as a part of the Shueisha game creators camp. The creators camp provides artists with an opportunity to collaborate with each other, create new art, manga, and work between genres.
