Total War Developer Working on New IP for Consoles

Published

 on

Creative Assembly

Creative Assembly, the studio best known for Total War, is staffing up as work begins on a new console-based IP.

The revelation comes via a series of job listings on the developer’s website, seeking high-level staff to join the studio’s dedicated console team. Each of the listings mention the project as a “new undisclosed IP,” with two citing its grand ambitions as “genre-defining.” Besides the buzzwords, few details can be gleaned from the listings, and the team’s history provides few indications.

Creative Assembly’s previous console efforts have ranged from the action-oriented Viking: Battle for Asgard, the horror-focused Alien: Isolation, and the RTS Halo Wars 2, giving the team a wide base of experience to draw upon. Despite the lack of available information, a studio insider reportedly told PCGamesN that the new title is “the biggest multiformat project Creative Assembly has ever undertaken.”

The new tease adds another title to the already expansive list of games in the works at the studio, with work currently ongoing on the free-to-play efforts of Total War: Arena and Total War Battles: Kingdom, as well as A Total War Saga: Thrones of Brittania, and, reportedly, a new project in the mainline historical series and a finale to the Warhammer sub-series.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
