2023 will be the 20th anniversary of the La Corda d’Oro otome game series, and Koei Tecmo is coming up with various campaigns for its fans. This information comes from an interview with Mei Erikawa, who is the brand manager for Ruby Party. Ruby Party is a woman-based game development team that is under the Koei Tecmo Holdings umbrella. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Since Koei Tecmo is still in the process of planning what it wants to do for the 20th anniversary of La Corda d’Oro, we do not have much information on what to expect. There will likely be something in La Corda d’Oro: Starlight Orchestra, which is the mobile game for the series.
In unrelated news, Ruby Party will “start a new challenge.” This might mean a new game or franchise.
La Corda d’Oro first came out for Windows PC in September 2003 and is an otome game series. There is also a manga and television series for it. Some entries follow the story of Kahoko Kino, who is a student at Seiso academy and the owner of a magical violin. She competes in a musical competition and finds herself becoming friends (and more) with the other musicians she competes with.
For the 20th anniversary of La Corda d’Oro in 2023, Koei Tecmo plans on doing something special for the series. More information will appear later.
