Looks like the Cells at Work! franchise currently has a lot going. With a manga ending this month and the second season of the anime airing, they always seem to be in the news.
A new Cells at Work! game is currently under development. It will be headed by NetEase, who are widely known for their action, fantasy, role-play themed games.
Based in China, NetEase is one of the largest Internet and video game companies in the world. Some of their popular games include Westward Journey series, Heroes of Tang Dynasty Zero and Ghost II.
“Joint Cells at Work!”, the station program announced on Sunday that a new “Cells at Work” game is currently in development. NetEase will be in charge of development.
The staff will announce details regarding the scheduled date of the game’s release, the platform on which it would be released and more, later this year.
The franchise already had a smartphone game app for iOS and Android devices in 2019 called Always Cells at Work, but the game was canceled last January.
The franchise is set to have a second event in May, though Kodansha hasn’t confirmed any news regarding the upcoming game and if it would be present during the Joint Festival at Work! at Tokyo’s Olympus Hall Hachiōji.
Scheduled on May 23, the voice cast members of both ongoing anime, Cells at Work! and Cells at Work! Code Black! would be present at the event.
People who buy the first Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume of either anime will receive a form to apply early for tickets to the event.
Nothing else has been announced regarding the project, including whether or not it would focus on only the mainline Cells At Work series or include its spin-off, Cells At Work! Code Black.
