Anime Expo 2018
Los Angeles – July 5, 2018 – Japanese publisher Cygames announced a new anime series, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA, at Anime Expo today, giving showgoers their first taste of an all-new anime take on the zombie apocalypse, created in collaboration with MAPPA and Avex Pictures.
The three companies have assembled a powerhouse production team with some of the industry’s top talent to create an all-new anime series set to take the undead world by storm when it is broadcast later this year. MAPPA, the studio behind the cult hit Yuri on Ice, will work with Avex Pictures, of Mr. Osomatsu fame, and Cygames, the Japanese entertainment company behind videogame and anime hits such as Granblue Fantasy and Shadowverse. The three companies will combine to give the zombie genre a refreshing new twist.
The series is set to debut in the Autumn of 2018, but today showgoers at Anime Expo in Los Angeles were treated to a teaser trailer that gave an early taste of the new face of flesh-eating. The trailer was shown at the Cygames booth at the show (booth 3900), where it will continue to be shown for the rest of the show – alongside all sorts of other Cygames-related activities, from Granblue Fantasy-themed cosplay and anime to Shadowverse demos, free swag, and appearances from an all-star cast of voice actors, artists, and pro gamers.
So with ZOMBIELAND SAGA set to be a sleeper hit this autumn, be sure to check it out at the show and stay tuned for more news.
