Developer Happymeal announced OMEGA6: THE VIDEO GAME, a 16-bit retro-futuristic sci-fi text adventure game based on the OMEGA6 manga by F-Zero and Star Fox artist Takaya Imamura. The game will release for Nintendo Switch with English, French, and Japanese support.
Imamura previously served as the main art director, character designer, and storywriter for the F-Zero and Star Fox franchises before leaving Nintendo in October 2021. OMEGA6: THE VIDEO GAME will be Imamura’s first title since leaving the company. Imamura is handling the game’s art direction and graphics while development is led by Happymeal.
The game will follow an original story separate from the manga with brand-new characters. Characters such as Thunder and Kyla will return from the manga for the upcoming game adaptation, however. Although the game is primarily a text adventure, it will feature various battle scenes and unique systems.
