ea-and-koei-tecmo-reportedly-teaming,-but-don’t-expect-star-warriors-or-mass-effect-musou

The online game business makes for unusual bedfellows, however who would ever predict a workforce up between Electronic Arts and Koei Tecmo? Well, apparently it’s taking place. A fan poking round EA’s Origin API lately discovered reference to one thing codenamed B OHNI, which is seemingly coming from EA and Koei Tecmo. Well, Jeff Grubb by no means met a leak he didn’t like, so on the newest episode of his Game Mess Mornings show he stepped ahead to verify that EA and Koei Tecmo are certainly engaged on what is going to probably be an EA Originals accomplice title. And sorry, earlier than you begin getting excited and pitching your concepts for  Star Warriors or Mass Effect Musou, Grubb claims the game is an unique IP.

“‘B OHNI,’ is a game that leaked on […] Reddit. A Discord user found this in EA’s [Origin] API and, people were like ‘This seems like an EA partner game made with Koei Tecmo, that’s weird.’ It’s real. I can confirm that, yes, Koei Tecmo is working with EA on a partner game. And where does your mind first go when you hear Koei Tecmo and EA? They’re probably going to make a musou, right? Like a Mass Effect musou or something like that? Well, it’s not any of that, it’s going to be a brand-new IP. That’s all I know so far. I think that’s okay, because I don’t think we’re going to have to wait long. I think we’re going to hear about this game next month.”

Of course, take this all with a grain of salt for now, however Koei Tecmo could have already dropped a touch about this challenge a few years in the past, once they confirmed they had been in touch with “several” Western publishers about new initiatives.

So, what do you assume EA and Koei Tecmo may be engaged on? I do know it’s alleged to be a brand new IP, however I’m holding out hope for Romance of the Three Maddens.
