A lot of big news bombed on the industry at the first day of TGS 2015. Two things have impressed us a lot: one is DMM makes a name, releasing many mobile games, such as ‘38M GIRLS PROJECT’, ‘Granatha Eternal’, ‘FrienDra’, ‘V.D. Vanishment Day’, ‘Touken Ranbu-Online-POCKET’ and ‘Kantai Collection’. It seems like DMM is not content to webgame market and targeting mobile games.
The other thing is: heavyweight works release their Chinese version. For example, ‘Yakuza’, a game that never has Chinese version before, announces that the latest work of ‘Yakuza’ will sell Chinese version after tasting the sweetness of ‘Yakuza 0’ in Chinese. Another game ‘Star Ocean 5 Integrity and Faithlessness’ also launches its Chinese version, while ‘Attack on Titan’ will market a version in Traditional Chinese. And, ‘GUNDAM EXVS-FORCE’ even provides two versions, one is for Hong Kong idiom, and the other for Taiwan. Nevertheless, ‘Sangokushi 13’ is the best. It not only has Chinese version, but also changes its CG dubbing into Chinese!
Alright, now let’s explore those games winning the biggest concerns from Chinese gamers:
DMM announces at TGS 2015 that its hot webgame ‘Kantai Collection’ is going to have Android version this winter, and mobile version will share the common data with web version.
‘Kantai Collection’ is a social webgame developed by DMM together with KADOKAWA Game. It is settled in Japanese Imperialism background, taking naval destroyer, corvette and cruiser as its blueprint, creating personalized characters. You can organize, train and reinforce your fleet to create an unbeatable combined fleet.
Popular webgame ‘Touken Ranbu’ from DMM will launch its Android version ‘Touken Ranbu-online-POCKET’. ‘Touken Ranbu’ is an education webgame developed by game operator DMM and game manufacturer Nitro+. Released on 14th Jan 2015, it invites famous seiyuu like Meano Tomoaki, Ishikawa Kaito, Toriumi Kouseke, Kondou Takashi, Kimura Ryouhei and Enoki Junya for dubbing, winning critical acclaim from gamers.
(‘Attack on Titan’)
Made by KOEI TECMO Games and played on PS4/PS3/PS Vita platforms, ‘Attack on Titan’ is announced to launch a version in Traditional Chinese at SCEJA’s press conference, but the listing date is unknown yet.
This work is developed by ω-Force, and take the world outlook from animation ‘Attack on Titan’ as its origin, describing the hero Eren and his fellows fighting with titans that eat human. It’s a strategic hunting game. Players can use solid mobile devices to fight with titans. Eren, Mikasa and other popular characters will show in the game. And the original dubbing will be kept.
At press conference for Asian media, SCEJA introduces the latest work ‘Sangokushi 13’ and show the teaser for the first time, for the celebration of the 30th anniversary for ‘Sangokushi’ series.
KT also announces that the language of ‘Sangokushi 13’ will include Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Korean. Chinese dubbing is provided. The listing date of this new work is on 10th December. A picture of Chinese interface is also shown at the press conference.
(‘Star Ocean 5’)
SONY announces at SCEJA’s press conference that its RPG (Roll Play Game) ‘Star Ocean5 Integrity and Faithlessness’ from SQUARE ENIX will release a version in Traditional Chinese and is going to go public next Spring. This will be the first Chinese version of the series.
‘Star Ocean5 Integrity and Faithlessness’ is structured on a common universal world views. The background is settled on an unexplored planet Vigrid, telling the story between 366 and 722 on universal calendar. It uses seamlessly connected map and stance changing method for the first time. Players can operate several characters with one button. The Real-time Strategic Command System is attractive.
‘Tokyo Ghoul’ is one of the hottest animation IP. NBGI launched ‘东京食种トーキョーグー儿JAIL’ on PSV platforms before.

It has nothing to do with the developing PSV version that is adapted from the original work. It’s an independent new work. By the way, FUNimation especially emphasizes that ‘Tokyo Ghoul Season 3’ will come next year!
