The EA Originals Label is pleased to announce a new partnership with Koei Tecmo and Omega Force. Together, the companies will produce a new IP based in fantasy feudal Japan. More details will be revealed later this month. The two companies are known for their successful and popular series and games.
“It’s an honor to be partnering with EA Originals and to have the support of a team with such an incredible track record of releasing groundbreaking new games,” said Yosuke Hayashi, Executive Vice President of KOEI TECMO GAMES CO, LTD. “The EA team fully embraces our creative independence and have become invaluable partners offering both development and publishing support. Adding the global resources of EA with our own will help us introduce a new kind of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I’m really looking forward to the day that gamers from around the world can play this new game.”
The new video game is said to be a great hunting game and will take place during the feudal period in Japan and will be a breakthrough adventure game. This game is expected to compete with Monster Hunter World, which was released by EA.
Koei Tecmo’s previous games have been independent and released worldwide, so the publisher hopes to expand its marketing efforts with the help of EA Originals.
