Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 Development Nearing Completion; Fuga 1 Large Scale Update Planned This Month

In a new Famitsu developer blog by CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama, he discussed the incoming large-scale update for Fuga: Melodies of Steel, emphasizing how it’s intended to launch this month, and that the Turbo Mode has received further customization than they initially planned, adding two new toggle thresholds.

Additionally, the development of Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 is nearing completion, with it going gold pretty soon.

The full relevant passages are below, translated by our team’s Ryuji:

[Fuga 1’s Large-Scale Update!]

The large-scale update for Fuga 1 is planned to be released by the end of March. The various elements that we’ve improved in Fuga 2 are also going to be implemented into 1, and we’re also taking into account all of the feedback we’ve received.

Regarding the Turbo Mode feature, we managed to add two additional intensity toggles that you can choose from. I will say the animations of the Taranis moving at such a high speed is quite adorable, so I hope you can see it. We will release a video introducing these major updates very soon, so be sure to check it out.

[Fuga 2 Nearing Completion!]

Currently, Fuga 2 is now in the very final adjustment stage, or in other words, all game system elements and parameter adjustments have been completed.

We are currently in the final debugging phase. (Debugging is the final step in game development, in which we repeatedly check the game to find and fix any problems so that it can be played comfortably without any issues.) The development and QA teams are working together to make final adjustments so that players worldwide can play the game in a more comfortable and optimal state when it releases on May 11, 2023.

I myself have been checking the latest builds every single day, and we are very close to completing another really interesting game!

In fact, I’ll say it now: Fuga 2’s development and the manga have both reached their climax!
