EA and KOEI TECMO Going Hunting

Electronic Arts announces it is collaborating with publisher KOEI TECMO and developer Omega Force on what it's describing as "the next great hunting game." This is not about camo and rifle scopes, however, as its setting in a fantasy version of feudal Japan will make finding such modern innovations futile. This is just a tease, but we're told to expect more later this month. That might mean the Tokyo Game Show, which begins in but two days. Here's what we have for now:
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) EA Originals Label has announced a new partnership with KOEI TECMO and studio Omega Force, the team behind the popular Warriors series, including DYNASTY WARRIORS and SAMURAI WARRIORS, to develop and release the next great hunting game. This original IP delivers a truly AAA experience based in fantasy feudal Japan, with more details about this exciting new title coming later this month.

“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.”
