Arc System Works is counting down to reveal a collaboration with “Kill la Kill” animators Studio Trigger

A mysterious countdown ends on June 15th.

A website went up overnight with red letters saying “Count down” and two numbers — the first being hours, the second minutes. The timer apparently goes up to June 15th, 8:00 PM PT.


An image on the site’s server surfaced (featured above) that says “Trigger X Arc System Works.” This is pointing out Studio Trigger, an animation company most known for titles like Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia.

Whatever this collaboration means, we’ll find out soon. It could possibly be a fighting game involving one of the anime studio’s franchises, or perhaps the studio is working on a series involving the characters from Arc System Works’ IP (maybe Guilty Gear Xrd rather than BlazBlue, since they’ve done a BlazBlue anime before).

(BlazBlue: Alter Memory wasn’t very good.)
