Tecmo Koei Are Preparing Another Major Collaboration For Later This Year

By Sato . May 8, 2014 . 2:00pm


Earlier today, we reported Tecmo Koei’s announcement of Hyrule Warriors’ release for this Summer in Japan during the company’s financial results briefing. They also had a few more things to share, including a new collaboration project they have planned for later this year.



The above is a slide that was shown during Tecmo Koei president Yoichi Erikawa’s briefing. It states that Hyrule Warriors will be released this Summer in Japan for Wii U. On the bottom, it also reads “Other major collaboration(s) being prepared for the second half of the year!!”


In the slides that followed, Tecmo Koei talked  about the importance of long-term growth potential and profitability. They plan on achieving this by using main-numbered titles in their franchises to control profits, while further creating and developing new I.P. as a way to enhance the mid and long-term efforts of their business.


In preparation for their long-term growth potential and profitability, Tecmo Koei plan on the expansion of smartphone and browser games to Asia, starting with Uncharted Waters V for China and Taiwan, followed by many other titles.


On the subject of long-term growth, Tecmo Koei indicated that they’re also preparing collaboration(s) for the North American and European market.


Food for Thought:


1. The collaboration mentioned in the Zelda slide could be Tecmo’s Fatal Frame project with Nintendo.


2. Tecmo Koei are indeed preparing collaboration(s) for the Western market; however, they didn’t specify whether these involve mobile and browser games, such as the aforementioned expansion of Uncharted Waters V in Asia.


3. While Tecmo Koei did note that they’re planning collaborations “for the American and European market,” they don’t mention with whom, which gives rise to the possibility of some sort of collaboration with western developers.
