It looks like Zoids Official has posted a rather intriguing promotional image, advertising the 40th anniversary of Zoids! This tantalizing teaser features a lineup of the Liger Zoids over the years. On closer look, they're customs of existing products, from HMM, to Genesis and Wild, and even the Hagane Works Blade Liger. The style closely mirrors the one used for the promotions of Zoids FOR
, a former mobile game that received a lot of mixed feedback when it released following a hyper-realism image that bore little resemblance to the final game (even if it did get a really cool trailer
.) That aside, the promotional artwork for FOR was gorgeous, and featured tons of realistic scenarios
that we didn't often get to see
. It's possible this teaser is even by the same group who handled the games' promo art, ANIMAREAL.
With this in mind, we're all wondering, what does it mean? It's certainly possible this artwork will reveal another game project. Product anniversaries are big in Japan, however, and even if this specific art doesn't lead to something that appeals to you, we'll likely see multiple announcements leading into the celebrations.
I'd also be remiss not to point out the absolutely beautiful logo, which is also the new profile pic of the Zoids Official Twitter
. What an elegant design. As someone who got into Zoids during the CC/anime phase, I'm delighted to see that it features an anime-style Blade Liger.
Let's sit back and see where this goes!
