Guild01 sequel announced, Keiji Infaune on board
Level-5′s 3DS game jam complilation Guild01 doesn’t hit Japan until the end of the month, but this week’s Famitsu has details of a follow-up.
According to Andriasang, the second collection – imaginatively titles Guild02 – will also feature contributions from a variety of noted designers and personalities, most notably Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.
Kazu Ayabe of Mini Kitchen has also been confirmed – the developer is best known for My Summer Vacation – along with Chunsoft’s Takemaru Abiko and Kazuya Asano, the team behind visual novel horror Otogiriso, which was later adapted as a film.
Those with a copy of both compilations will be able to unlick content in Guild02 by a complicated sequence of passwords swaps.
Here’s the run down of the three games revealed so far; Guild01 has four games, so we may see at least one more at a later date:
From Takemaru Abiko and Kazuya Asano, creators of such ChunSoft visual novels as Otogiriso and Kamaitachi no Yoru. You play as a character who awakens in the dark, having lost his memory. In this short-form suspense game, you’ll explore such questions as “Who am I,” “Where am I” and “What is happening?”
- Mushikera Sensha
Keiji Inafune’s contribution to Guild02 is an action game whose name translates to something along the lines of “Bug Tank.” Set in World War II, you control a tank that has been converted to mini size. You’ll face off in battle against giant insects.
- Kaijuu ga Deru Kinyoubi
Kazu Ayabe, maker of Sony’s My Summer Vacation series, is working on Kaijuu ga Deru Kinyoubi, whose name roughly translates to “The Friday When The Monsters Appear.” The game is set in the Showa Era (60s) in a town where giant heroes and monsters have become popular amongst children. Every Friday, monsters appear in the town.
Guild01 has not been confirmed for international release despite sounding particularly awesome; along with games from Vagrant Story designer Yasumi Matsuno, Sega legend Yoot Saito, and Grasshopper Manufacture lead Goichi Suda , it also boasts a Time Traveller’s demo.
