Development is due to kick off in August or September.
Dokidoki Groove Works, the studio behind Valkyrie Anatomia, has revealed it is working on a new “large-scale” RPG for PlayStation 4.
In a Japanese-language job listing – entitled “New PS4 Game Development Project Begins! Make a Hit that Captivates the World” – the studio said development on the project was due to kick off in August or September, and confirmed the new RPG was being developed in Unreal Engine 4. The team is looking to fill a number of vacancies across a range of disciplines, including planners, programmers, graphic artists, sound designers, and management planners.
“This time, it is our pleasure to be participating in the development of a new RPG for PlayStation 4,” the job listing said (as translated by Gematsu). “It is a major project that uses Unreal Engine 4. We will welcome you as members of its development. You should be able to demonstrate your skills and senses to the fullest extent. The project is scheduled to start-up around August or September.”
Interestingly, whilst this advert has specifically made reference to Sony’s current-gen system and not its upcoming next-gen console, Dokidoki Groove Works’ prior games have chiefly been on mobile or handheld devices, including Nintendo Switch and PS Vita.
We’ll keep you posted as/when we find out more about this mysterious project.
