Aksys Games Reveals New Titles at Anime Expo® 2024

Los Angeles — July 5, 2024 — At the company’s panel today at Anime Expo 2024, Aksys Games unveiled a slate of new games and divulged new information about some already-announced titles for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation® and PC.

The new titles announced include:

Ed-0: Zombie Uprising (PS5® physical only/October 10) – Experience the year 1854 in a fictional Edo-era Japan in this action rogue-like title! A mysterious Black Ship makes landfall, not bringing with it technology and trade, but something much more deadly. With the end of isolation, a new wave of zombies are created, and the infestation now runs rampant. Amid the madness, a group of fighters with the mysterious power to resist the zombie mutation, the “Zom-beings,” appear. The hunt begins as they fight to restore Edo to its days before the invasion. But don’t be fooled, this won’t be an easy stroll through town; without leveling up the strength and power of the “Zom-beings” and honing your combat skills, you’ll face defeat, and Edo will be lost forever.

Raging Bytes (NSW/PS5 physical only/December 12) – Can you survive the raging bytes? Set in a zombie-ravaged America, Ben and Barbra must ­fight their way through waves of monsters while running into other uninfected survivors along the way. With difficulty levels for all kinds of players, dive into this post-apocalyptic world in turn-based battles! This story-driven RPG full of drama and pixels pays homage to the classic horror movies of the 1970’s and was planned, drafted and supervised by Jiro Ishii, praised for titles such as 428: Shibuya Scramble.

Zero to Dance Hero (NSW/November) – Learn to dance from zero! Start from the basics with real dance lessons covering 30 popular hip-hop steps. By learning each dance in bite-sized stages, even beginners can easily learn to dance well! The more hands-on Free Mode includes six original choreographed dances in a variety of musical genres. Keep the beat and enjoy the fruits of your training with catchy background music! Many support features keep you motivated as you become a dance hero!

7’scarlet (NSW/Spring 2025) – Take on the role of a young woman journeying to the remote town of Okune-zato to locate her missing brother. Shaped like a crescent moon, Okune-zato is shrouded in dark myths and legends. As the protagonist and her childhood friend get to know the cast of eccentric characters at the Fuurinkan Hotel, they are drawn into the mysterious events taking place in the town. Encounter heart-racing twists and turns as you dig deeper into the story.

Mistonia no Kibou -The Lost Delight- [English title pending] (NSW/2025) – A tale filled with love and fixation, woven together by those who carry the blood of the fairies. The story takes place in Grand Alvion, a kingdom thriving under the rule of the fairy queen, in an era where light and shadow coexist. On the outskirts of the capital city stands a noble residence belonging to a prestigious family, where a newly-hired maid is about to set foot onto the property: our heroine, Applause. Having lost everything eight years prior, she swore to take revenge on those responsible. Under a false identity, she begins her search for the truth as she works at the mansion belonging to a potential target for her vengeance. What secrets will she unearth upon her chance encounters with the distinguished noblemen who protect the kingdom? What path will she choose? And so begins the revenge tragedy of a girl bound by a hapless fate.

Utakata no Uchronia [English title pending] (NSW/2025) – Welcome to the renowned and prosperous utopia, the flying city of Itehari. Our protagonist is Hinagiku, a noble lady from a distinguished family who longs for the world beyond the floating city.
