Bandai Namco announced on June 28 a brand new game titled Blue Protocol, a PC Online Action RPG developed by Bandai Namco Online and Bandai Namco Studios. Bandai Namco also revealed Project Sky Blue, the development team made from personnel of both groups, which is handling the game.

Blue Protocol is currently in development and uses Unreal Engine 4. It has anime style high-end graphics, aiming to mix together the exhilarating feelings one would get while watching a beautiful anime and when playing an online RPG.

One sole screenshot, seen above, was published for Blue Protocol as of now. The game’s logo and the logo for Project Sky Blue were revealed as well. The logo for Blue Protocol, in particular, includes text hinting at the game’s world and setting:

“The world is on the brink of devastation, now is the time to unite. March on with friends and strangers, and defeat foes beyond your might. Travel through space and time, to change the future beyond this fight!”

Project Sky Blue is described as a team aiming to plan, develop and deliver new entertainment IPs from Japan to the world. Blue Protocol is currently one of their biggest projects.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Bandai Namco handles the development of the main Sword Art Online game adaptations, and Blue Protocol definitely looks and sounds a lot like a Sword Art Online game. As a new IP it will definitely have its differences though, so I’m looking forward to seeing what will make Blue Protocol stand out.

Bandai Namco announced more information regarding Blue Protocol will be revealed at a later date.
