Ross founded the UK Anime Network back in 1995, and following Andy Hanley's retirement has returned to the post of Editor-in-Chief in 2017. What an old man!
Based on the popular Japanese mobile RPG For Whom The Alchemist Exists, Gumi Inc will be releasing The Alchemist Code on both iOS and Android later this year.
The game has a terrific pedigree, as CEO Hironao Kunimutsu explains:
We look forward to expanding the Alchemist universe globally and are delighted to showcase the unmatched talents of the title’s development team, which comprises acclaimed creators, such as OP Animation Director Shōji Kawamori (Macross series, Aquarion) and renowned composer and pianist, Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts, Street Fighter II, Mario & Luigi), who composed the Main Theme Song & Music. The title also features world class voice acting from popular Japanese voice talents, like Natsuki Hanae (Twin Star Exorcists, D.Gray Man), Kaito Ishikawa (Macross Delta) and Yōko Hikasa (Litttle Witch Academia) and more.
