RADWIMPS, CloverWorks Team Up for Gran Saga Anime Video

The Gran Saga MMORPG game has received a 30-second version of a “special anime video” that is produced by CloverWorks and features the song “MAKAFUKA” by RADWIMPS. The video comes ahead of the game’s Japanese launch on November 18.

The video is directed, storyboarded, and edited by Nobutaka Yoda (Heart Forecast music video director and storyboarder; The Aquatope on White Sand Opening 1, Opening 2, and Ending 1 director), with Shin’ichirô Ushijima (I Want to Eat Your Pancreas director) as animation director. 

Other staff include Shōta Iwasaki (Fate/Grand Order Final Singularity – Grand Temple of Time: Solomon co-sub character designer and animation director) as character designer and animation director, Kazuko Nakajima (Fate/Grand Order Final Singularity – Grand Temple of Time: Solomon) as color designer, and Hisayo Usui (Fate/Grand Order Final Singularity – Grand Temple of Time: Solomon co-art director) as art director.

Developed by NPIXEL, Gran Saga launched in South Korea on January 26. The game uses the Unreal Engine 4 engine and is playable on mobile and PC. QooApp describes the story as being about “the adventure of a group of knights who want to save their kingdom from the curse of an evil dragon.”
