Electronic Arts has announced that it will be partnering with Koei Tecmo on their “the next great hunting game”, a new IP set in a fantasy version of Feudal Japan. The partnership will be done through the EA Originals division and the game is currently in development at Omega Force, the team behind the Musou and Toukiden franchises. No other details were revealed but a first look at the game will be shared later in the month.

Here’s what Yosuke Hayashi, executive vice president of Koei Tecmo Games, had to say:

It’s an honor to be partnering with EA Originals and to have the support of a team with such an incredible track record of releasing groundbreaking new games. The EA team fully embraces our creative independence and have become invaluable partners offering both development and publishing support. Adding the global resources of EA with our own will help us introduce a new kind of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I’m really looking forward to the day that gamers from around the world can play this new game.

Here’s what Jeff Gamon, general manager of EA Partners, had to say:

Building on the incredible success of EA Originals, which includes the recent releases of It Takes Two and Knockout City, we’re thrilled to be partnering with the amazingly talented Omega Force team. They’ve elevated the hunting genre to the next level, merging their proven talent for combat gameplay with unexpected and innovative mechanics. We can’t wait to introduce their groundbreaking new adventure to the world later this month.
