World Destruction Anime and RPG
There would be a Manga adaptation anime and a RPG for this Manga!
World Destruction reunites three veterans behind the PS1’s popular Xenogears’ scenarist Masato Kato (also of the original NES Ninja Gaiden, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VII fame), character designer Kunihiko Tanaka, and composer Yasunori Mitsuda (known for his work on Chrono Trigger, Shadow Hearts, Chrono Cross and Xenosaga)
The said game was issued to be released this summer for NDS.
While most RPGs revolve around saving the world from certain destruction, World Destruction tries the opposite. In a world (you knew that was coming) where humans serve as livestock for the ruling beastmen, and where sand fills the roles of water and fire, you play as Kyrie, a young lad who is recruited by the “World Destruction Committee” to assist in putting an end to their world. As it turns out, Kyrie alone holds the power needed to do it.
Kyrie will be joined by heroine Morte, as well as four more characters introduced in Famitsu: Naja, a half-human, half-beastman fighting on behalf of the world; Agan, a comical member of a pro-human guerrilla organization; Lia, a 300-year-old dragonkin trapped in a 16-year-old body; and Toppy, bounty-hunting bear who sports an eye patch.
Their journey is presented in lush 2D sprites on 3D backgrounds, and the team promises to push the 2D sprite animation to the limit, even going so far as to bring Grandia design director Masatoshi Azumi onto the project. Also joining the staff as monster designer in Etrian Odyssey and Shin Nagasawa. Some of the game’s monsters are so huge that they span both screens.
Battles are waged with a three-character, turn-based system: characters store up BP (battle points) to use abilities and team attacks, and players can then time button presses to inflict further damage, or cancel the commands altogether like in a fighting game.

Production I.G will launch an anime version in July.
Shunsuke Tada would be the director (The Prince of Tennis: The National Tournament, Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations) and Kunihiko Tanaka (Xenosaga Episode I, Key the Metal Idol, Ruin Explorers manga) is drawing the game’s character designs, while Keita Matsumoto (Blood+, XXXHOLiC key animation) is adapting Tanaka’s designs for the anime version. Yoshihiro Ike (Blood: The Last Vampire, Karas, Flag) will compose the music. Maaya Sakamoto (Escaflowne, Tsubasa) will voice the main heroine Morute Āshera, and Mamoru Miyano (Death Note, Gundam 00) and Yu Kobayashi (Negima!, School Rumble) will play her party members Kirie and Ri A, respectively. (Morute will play a bigger role in the anime version.) Hiroyuki Yoshino (Blood+, Gundam 00) and Daisuke Ono (Air, Shina Dark) round out the cast as Agan Mādoru and Naja Gurefu, respectively. The voice for the mascot character Toppi Topuran has yet to be announced.
I’m very excited ever since I have read the words FF, Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger 😈 I’m a big fan of Squaresoft/enix
I hope both productions would come out smoothly… I’m a bit sad because the RPG would be released for NDS… I don’t have one 😆 I hope as well that this wouldn’t turn out like the Chrono Trigger OVA (Nuumamonja).
Many says that this game would be an instant buy for them because the three talents really are notable for their works.
