In the time since our last update we’ve made leaps and bounds of behind-the-scenes work on Demonbane, the first collaborative project coming from the creative partnership of JAST USA and Japanese game maker Nitroplus.
On the official website, we updated with two new character descriptions: the nurturing nun Leica whose hospitality gives Kurou his starting point, and the mad Doctor West, villainous goon of the Black Lodge Syndicate whose madcap machinery is wreaking havoc throughout Arkham City. Check the Demonbane character page for more!
Progress continues in game production, with the translation team, the JAST USA localization team and the Nitroplus technical and quality assurance staff all collaborating to bring the pieces together in a presentation to be proud of. We are committed to releasing the game ‘when it’s ready’, but that “when” can now be said to be soon, Summer of 2010.
