    If they’re going to be successful turning this brand into a cross media property, hopefully they’re sticking to the dark humor and satire.

      Last update didn’t instill me with confidence to be honest. Looks more like they‘re trying to be a Genshin copy or something.

    Fuckin Japan man. They just love their giga corporations way too much. Can‘t even have a single very successful indie studio in peace without throwing themselves at Sony.

      Are you saying you don’t get excited for your favourite characters to be “developing the reach of the intellectual property and for expanding commercial business endeavors”!?‽

      While not wrong, let’s not pretend that their friends across the ocean aren’t doing the exact same thing. Practically everything Microsoft have acquired has either been shutdown, or crippled to the point where it’s unrecognizable

    LOL. At this point I think they’re copying Pokemon out of spite. They form a new company (like The Pokemon Company) to manage the IP, backed by a large corporation (Sony instead of Nintendo) that is separate from the development team (Pocketpair vs Gamefreak)

      Sony Music was the business that developed the PlayStation before it moved to SCE/SIE/PlayStation Worldwide Studios, and Aniplex/Crunchyroll. Its basically the only profitable entertainment business they have.
