Ancient Announces New Gotta Protectors Game for Switch, New RPG Ouritsu Anapoko Gakuen

Ancient, led by Yuzo Koshiro, announced two new games for Switch, Ouritsu Anapoko Gakuen and Susume!! Mamotte Knight: Hime no Totsugeki Serenade.

December 5, 2018

Game development studio Ancient, led by legendary composer Yuzo Koshiro, announced on Twitter the latest game of its Mamotte Knight series: Susume!! Mamotte Knight: Hime no Totsugeki Serenade. The game will release for Switch in 2019.

For the first time in the series, it’ll also include an online mode. Mamotte Knight is really fun when playing with friends, so this is great news. Screenshots for Susume!! Mamotte Knight: Hime no Totsugeki Serenade were revealed as well, you can find them in the gallery below. The game will also include new classes, and Ancient is aiming to make it into a game “you never get tired of and can keep playing forever”.

Moreover, still on its official Twitter, Ancient also announced a brand new RPG coming for Switch, titled Ouritsu Anapoko Gakuen, which could be translated to “Royal Anapoko Academy”. Ouritsu Anapoko Gakuen is a turn-based RPG, with “fast and highly strategic battles”. The game’s dungeons are floor based and story chapters are short so even busy people can finish them. The playable characters are Anapoko’s students, and over 100 of them are playable. The characters were designed by mangaka Ayami Morinaga. Screenshots are also included below.

Both games will release in Japan for Switch in 2019.

Before these public announcements, multiple people on Twitter had already reported about both games, as flyers about them were distributed by Ancient during the Koshiro Matsuri Ancient Festival live concert on December 1.
