Cross-media project blending horse racing and idol raising includes comics, music CDs, and an upcoming social game
Remember Uma Musume - Pretty Derby, the idol training / horse racing social game currently being developed by Cygames, the creators of Rage of Bahamut and Shadowverse? In case you'd forgotten, Cygames is planning a "big presentation" for their booth at the upcoming AnimeJapan 2017 convention.
The "big presentation" is scheduled to be staged from 10:50 - 11:30 AM JST on March 25, 2017, at the Cygames booth (J77) at the Tokyo Big Sight venue in Koto Ward, Tokyo, Japan. The presentation will be live-streamed on Nico Nico, and it will feature the following voice actors as guests:
- Azumi Waki (the voice of Special Week).
- Marika Kōno (the voice of Silence Suzuka).
- Machico (the voice of Tokai Teio)
- Eriko Matsui (the voice of Fujikiseki)
- And Tomoyo Takayanagi (the voice of Oguri Cap).
The Uma Musume - Pretty Derby project has already expanded to include not only the game (currently in-development), but also a series of music CDs and a web comic. I wonder if Cygames has any other Uma Musume spin-off projects in the works? We'll just have to wait and see.
