Tango Gameworks Is Rumored To Be Working On A JRPG
The Microsoft owned Japanese game development studio, Tango Gameworks, is rumored to be working on a JRPG for its next project.
According to eXtas1s, who had previously leaked information regarding the Baten Kaitos remaster and the new game from Hideo Kojima, Tango Gameworks, is rumored to be working on two new projects, including a JRPG. The developer has recently worked on games like Ghostwire: Tokyo and Hi-Fi Rush.
The leaker claims that the JRPG is based on a brand new IP, while all they have revealed regarding the other project is that it is that it is not The Evil Within 3. If true, this would undoubtedly come as a disappointment for The Evil Within fans and fans of the survival horror genre in general.
Previously, eXtas1s had leaked footage of what appeared to be Kojima Productions’ unannounced project on private discord servers. It appeared to have been taken from a teaser prepared for Overdose. The actress featured in the footage, Margaret Qualley, has previously appeared in the studio’s last project i.e. Death Stranding. The short presentation video didn’t reveal much about the game itself, though the title and director Hideo Kojima’s name were prominently featured. The same leaker has also revealed the alleged logo for the game.
Tango Gameworks’ previous game, Hi-Fi Rush, is a rhythm-based action game called Hi-Fi Rush was developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks for Windows and Xbox Series X/S. The announcement and global release took place on January 25, 2023.
The game focuses on Chai, a self-proclaimed “future rock star” who accidentally has a music player implanted in his chest during an experimental cybernetic surgery, enabling him to feel the pulse of the outside world. Chai teams up with new friends to take down the company’s executives and thwart their schemes despite being branded a “defect” and being pursued by the corporation that transformed him. The Hi-Fi Rush album features licensed tracks from bands like The Black Keys and Nine Inch Nails.
