It looks as though Viz Media is taking a swing at a new game called Cat Lady. Although nothing has really been shown off other than a cute animated trailer the game is being made by Rose City Games who have worked on The World Next Door, another game published by Viz Media.
The press release reads as follows:
San Francisco, CA, June 4, 2019 – VIZ Media announces CAT LADY, a new feline-flavored supernatural action game. CAT LADY is currently in production by Rose City Games, and set to be published by VIZ Media as part of an ongoing partnership between the companies to develop, produce and release original indie video games.
CAT LADY is among the diverse multimedia and video game properties to be showcased and available for consumer product license at Licensing Expo 2019, the world’s largest and most influential annual licensing industry event (VIZ Media, Booth R202, June 4 – 6).
“We’re very excited to add CAT LADY to VIZ Media’s expanding catalog of original titles,” says Brad Woods, VIZ Media Chief Marketing Officer. “A cast of adorable characters await players, and will captivate a wide array of gamers and age groups.”
“CAT LADY is a delightful game with a fun story that blends whimsy, talking cats and spooky action to make for plenty of paw-some gameplay,” says Will Lewis, Rose City Games Co-Founder, CAT LADY Director, and cat lover.
VIZ Media and Rose City Games inaugurated a partnership earlier this year with their first video game release – THE WORLD NEXT DOOR. The award-winning game follows Jun, a rebellious teen, who finds herself trapped in the parallel world inhabited by magical beings and a rich narrative and fast-paced, real-time puzzle battles that combines the emotional storytelling and thrilling action of anime and indie gaming. Developed by Rose City Games and published by VIZ Media, THE WORLD NEXT DOOR is available now for the Nintendo SwitchTM console and also for PC/MAC.
