Its lead engineer is Katsuichi Satake, with Daisuke Enomura and Toshinari Takahashi also credited on the press release.

The second project is titled Project JabberWocky, a rhythm game directed by Hiroyuki Kotani, the director of the Patapon series, and the sound designer is Kenmei Adachi. It promises “an unique worldview” with adorable characters.

And finally, the third project, Project Shaz. Described as a multiplayer action game from the development staff of GOD EATER. It says fans should expect a brand new story created by the Freedom Wars tag team of Toshiyuki Yasui and Tomokazu Fukushima.
