    great everything. the only thing I'd do is add an F to pay respects…mentioning Kyoto Animations after what happened…may the artists be comfortable drawing with God.

    That sadness aside, thank you for the information. I had no idea Cygames did the sensible thing and cooperated with studios, till they hit it big enough to make their own studio for..literally anything they need. I'm glad…what was their name, Cyber Agents? I'm happy they are smart people. No idea if they're trustworthy, but they're smart, so I respect it.

  19. Angelo Z 8 months ago

    Oh yeah, just gonna put this here: Dragalia Lost, latest Cygames/Nintendo title, is amazing. It seems to start small for now, but it has massive potential.

    On a side note, take that, Fire Emblem Heroes, you sucked.(technically not relevant, but since DL is related to Nintendo as well, gotta shove it here too. Sorry.)

  20. Model Z 8 months ago

    What's impressive is that everything they do, they do WELL. Maybe not always perfect, but their brand is instantly associated with quality. Look at Dragalia Lost, it's better than any mobile game has any right to be with a ton of character interaction and loads of customization. Gacha elements are… ehhh… but comes with the territory I guess.

    Where did you get that juutenshu shadowverse style animation?

  22. Zerviscos 8 months ago

    You now a company's rich when their games throw free rolls at you almost every month like they're nothing.

  23. Sean 8 months ago

    1:23, That's definitely not the Love Live movie, that's the Snow Halation music video that came out half a decade earlier (late 2010). Sorry, just a nitpick. Great video still.

  24. Clarence Alger 8 months ago

    I've always liked many of their works but I didn't know they are connected to the same studio. I only got interested enough to search about them because of how much I love Shadowverse. O_O

  25. サツッピミク 8 months ago

    sooo they kinda like UFOtable/Type-Moon?

  26. IamMe 8 months ago

    I would've loved for Megalo Box to me a media mix success. That wish sprang into my head when I saw "Uma Musume Project" in the trailer. Megalo box was also called "Project Megalo" apparently but I couldnt find any source besides the anime credits.

  27. IamMe 8 months ago

    Not called CyBackgrounds? Awwwww
