We’ve already covered the Japanese release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Short Peace Project on PlayStation 3 few weeks ago. Usually this is something that never make it out of Japan, but incredibly enough, today we’re here to report you that Namco Bandai has announced a localized release for the US.
What’s this? Wait, let’s go in order. What exactly Short Peace is? It is an anthology anime film by Katsuhiro Otomo, legendary artist and anime director, best known for his masterpiece Akira. By anthology we mean a collection of four short movies directed by different artists. Here’s the trailer for the movie.
Now, Short Peace itself is composed by four short movies, let’s say four pieces, all about “Japan” as a common subject, but there is one more. The fifth bit of the of the project is indeed a video game. And it’s out today (January 16) in Japan.
