Huge news out of Japan as Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro and Arc System Works have announced they are developing a game together titled The Missing. The game will be developed by Swery’s White Owls studio.
You can view Swery’s message and announcement video down below…
The title, “The Missing,” has many meanings. A missing person, someone who’s lost, or even something lost. Maybe it’s your loved one… or a place you belong. Do you ever feel lost in your everyday life? The Missing is for someone like you.
Congratulations, Arc System Works, on your North American branch. And hello, everyone! I’m Swery, director of The Missing. This is an exciting collaboration between Arc System Works and White Owls. It also marks White Owl’s first game developed in-house. That makes The Missing a thoroughbred project. Developed by my own team in my own studio. Arc System Works has given me an opportunity to create something entirely new. Of course, this comes with its fair share of challenges, but we’re tackling them one at a time. But I’m definitely enjoying my creative freedom. Arc System Works has been very supporting. And they let me pursue my vision.
We can’t reveal too much today, can we? OK, yeah… that’s what I thought. Frankly, this title will blow your mind. I think it’s sick. I’m confident it will exceed your expectations. So, please stay tuned.
