The next video game that features the participation of renowned Sui Ishida author, Jack Jeanne, could not escape the series of delays that plagued productions in 2020, however, there is still a lot of promotional material to be revealed. As such, the creator of the popular Tokyo Ghoul franchise has been revealing information about the project recently, with the most recent installment consisting of a series of promotional videos for all four classes.
The four trailers feature Kisa and the many other students at the school, divided into four classes. Each student is also classified according to the types of roles that she performs. The "Jacks" are best rated for male roles, while the "Jeannes" are rated for female roles. The students who play male and female lead roles are named “Jack Ace” and “Arjeanne” respectively. However, Kisa is a rare student who could become a "Jack Jeanne" suitable for any role.
Finally, the release is scheduled for March 18 in Japan, after being delayed from its original date scheduled for December 3, which, in fact, was its second postponement. On the other hand, Ishida participates in the project as original creator, character designer, world designer, illustrator and lyricist of the main theme music, while Broccoli is in charge of distribution.
The installment will feature both visual novel and rhythm game elements, and will focus on a drama school. The company previously stated that the game will include "a plot equivalent to twenty novels," and the entire game will feature voice acting.
