From works based on our IPs to wholly original animations, Cygames has been involved in the creation of numerous anime spanning a plethora of genres.
We believe that exciting games shouldn't be limited to one medium, so in 2014, the anime series Rage of Bahamut: Genesis was created, based off the game Rage of Bahamut. From this project, Cygames sensed an opportunity to break into the world of animation, and in March 2015, our in-house animation team was established. Since then, we have produced a variety of works, always aiming to be the best in animation.
While the Shadowverse anime has a completely different setting and story from the original game's dark fantasy roots, it has gained fans from a wide audience, especially the younger generations. A console game based on the show, Shadowverse: Champion's Battle, was released on the Nintendo Switch at the same time the show was airing, demonstrating that our IPs are also capable of breaking the barriers between console games and anime.
As an original anime series, Zombie Land Saga drew acclaim for its novel fusion of idols, zombies, and Saga Prefecture. This has led to collaborative events with the actual Saga Prefecture, live concerts, and even stage performances. Another series from our diverse animation library is Akiba Maid War, an anime about the unconventional job of maids at a maid cafe, which was released in October 2022. Through our work in the world of anime, we aim to continue expanding Cygames IPs while also producing thrilling new shows that everyone can enjoy.
