Today Broccoli fully revealed Jack Jeanne, a new video game carrying the signature of Tokyo Ghoul mangaka Sui Ishida.
Ishida-sensei won’t just take care of the character design, but he’ll be responsible for most aspects related to the game, including direction, background art, and more. The scenario is written in collaboration with Shin Towada, who worked on the Tokyo Ghoul light novel.
The music is composed by Akira Kosemura, and the game is planned for a 2020 release only on Nintendo Switch.
The story is quite interesting, set in a famous opera school open only to male students who perform both male and female roles.
Protagonist Kisa Tachibana is allowed entrance on two conditions. The first is to provide a stirring performance in the production at the end of the school year, and the second is to hide the fact that she is indeed a woman.
This is the main reason behind the title Jack Jeanne. In fact, the protagonist plays a male role (Jack) and a female role (Jeanne).
To make things even more complex, she is the sister of a genius actor, and she’ll have to interact with the male students around her. Of course, they all also play female roles.
Today we get to see a teaser trailer and a look at the male and female looks of each main character.
