The Game Awards was streamed last night and there are a few highlights but overall it was not the train wreck it was last year. Lots of industry heads showed up to promote what they have in the works and mingle with others. A few new trailers were shown off during the show that have promise for fun times ahead. All that will be discussed in this weeks podcast. Here is the list of nominees and winners from last nights show.
On November 29, it was announced that the Beyond the Boundary anime, which first aired in October 2013, will become a full length animated film. Poster art and a special teaser trailer for the film, Beyond the Boundary the Movie: I’ll Be Here, have also been released.
The first part of the film, subtitled Kako-hen, will be released on March 14, 2015 and will focus on heroine Mirai Kuriyama, and look back on the events of the TV anime series. The second, all new installment, Mirai-hen, will be released on April 25, 2015, and tell what happens to Mirai and her friends a year after the initial storyline.
Director Taichi Ishidate, had this to say about the new films:
“This story is about an eighteen and seventeen year old boy and girl. Both extraordinary but wanting to be normal, and desperately in love. I want them to be happy. I want both of them to build a figure for themselves as best they can. That’s what I’m thinking about as I put this movie together. I hope everyone will come to see their journey together."
