CyberConnect 2 is working on Guilty Dragon for Android and iOS. The title has a connection to the popular .hack series, which Western players will be more familiar with. An announcement was made at a pre-Tokyo Game Show event as the game readies itself for release in Japan.

Speaking to Siliconera, Hiroshi Matsuyama revealed:

“We are producing a game called Guilty Dragon for smartphones and it will be released soon in Japan. We have about 200 people on our staff so we are able to work on a lot of titles.”

CyberConnect2’s CEO continued by discussing the advantages of making Guilty Dragon an iOS title.

“The pro about a smartphone app is that you can play it wherever you want. Therefore, it is a very different approach in development than I’ve had experience with. By the way, the engine I’m using is Unity.”

“After we release in Japan we will release Guilty Dragon in America and Europe,” Matsuyama concluded.

No release date as of yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
