Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s recently-launched mobile arm Forwardworks published the first trailer of Sora to Umi no Aida, which translates as “Aida of Sky and Sea.”
The game was announced back in December, and is directed by Oji Hiroi, creator of the Sakura Wars (Sakura Taisen) series.
The story is quite peculiar: After all fish disappear from the sea, the government enacts a plan that has been in the works for some time: cultivating fish in space within giant tanks. This is how space fishermen were born.
The story follows the growth of six girls that have been chosen as candidates for a new space fishermen mission.
The genre is described as a “space fish capture action game,” and it will be available for iOS and Android as a free-to-plat title with optional in-app purchases.
The first trailer, that you can see below, shows the opening cutscene of the game, and we also get an idea of the gameplay from the first screenshots that were also released today. You can see those in the gallery at the bottom of the post.
On top of the assets, pre-registrations have also been opened, and they can be found at the new official website.
This isn’t the first mobile game coming from Sony’s Forwardworks, as Everybody’s Golf was launched in Japan last month. That being said, Aida of Sky and Sea is the first original IP created for the brand.
