Drakengard Staff And Danganronpa Writer Making A Square Enix Arcade Game



Square Enix already have a few arcade games, but they’ll be looking to add one more with the recently announced School of Ragnarok. Famitsu shares a few more details in a preview for this week’s magazine issue.


School of Ragnarok is labeled as an “online 1vs1 Tactical 5D Action” game. This “next generation arcade game” will release sometime in the middle of 2015.


Takamasa Shiba who produced the first two Drakengard games and Lord of Vermilion II will take on the role of producer for School of Ragnarok, alongside Spike Chunsoft’s Danganronpa scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka, who’ll write the scenario for the game.


Additionally, characters will be designed by Mistwalker’s Kimihiko Fujisaka, who actually worked on the character designs for all three Drakengard games, so he’ll reunite with Shiba to work on the upcoming arcade title.


Finally, Keiichi Okabe from Monaca will be in charge of the School of Ragnarok’s music. He previously worked on music for the Tekken series, Drakengard 3, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.


More details on School of Ragnarok are expected to surface soon.
