Jinki: Extend Revived as an Adult Game

Posted on: June 10, 2010

Huh.

Not the direction I expected the franchise to go, no.

So, do you guys remember Jinki: Extend? It was a relatively forgettable mecha anime back in 2005, though the manga has been running on and off since 2002. Today, I was a bit shocked to see it in the purple section of Moon Phase dedicated to adult games. It turns out that the manga property is being adapted into game form by famed PC game maker Giga (publisher of such games as Maid Cafe Curio and Baldr Force) under the name Jinki Extend Re:Vision.

According to the developer diary on the official site, which I will not link because there will soon be adult content on the site, this project has been in the works for two years. It has the full blessing of original creator Shirou Tsunashima, who will provide character designs for the game but leave the writing to Giga’s team of Kyousui Kiduki, Tarou Kajiya and Team Birth-tale.

This is notable to me for two reasons. First, I’ve never heard of a non-adult manga getting an adult game adaptation. Second, I absolutely love mech games made by Giga – I own every game that Team Baldrhead has ever done. This is definitely going to be an interesting story to follow as more information is released…
