As always, thanks to the translation team in the PSX archive for hosting this! ————————– - The New Jump Square! ————————– During a panel at Jump Square 2007, members from all 17 Jump Square magazines talked about their ideas for the upcoming Jump Square. For example, Akame ga Kill’s editor in chief, Jun Nakamura, mentioned that, from what we know of Akame ga Kill being a prequel/sequel, it would make sense for the game to be set a good while after the first game. A Certain Magical Index’s director of photography, Kenichi Takagami, also admitted that, while they are aware that they are not planning to show the sequel to A Certain Magical Index, the series will make an appearance sometime in the future. The panel ended with the announcement that: “The official title of Jump Square for 2007 is Jump Square Game!!!” This also referred to all 17 Jump Square magazines, and it would be cool to share how they would go about working up a title for the new Jump Square. [Note: The names of Jump Square publications was changed to preserve their original names, with the exception of Houbunsha, which was left intact.] One of the “major” ideas that was mentioned is that, this time around, the new Jump Square will have a tie-in manga. As long as they are able to obtain the original characters and settings, if there are any possible ways to make the manga series tie-in with the games, this would be one part. If the Jump Square were to tie-in with a manga, I believe that the editor-in-chief would have the final say in deciding which character and setting should be used. Regarding characters, it would make sense for the new Jump Square to be a character with a different role or one that is a “unique” character. For example, if the new Jump Square had their own spin-off series and had a hero that was part of the original game, it might make sense to use that as the hero’s name. Also, I believe that in the beginning, the editors would not want to use “Akame Ga Kill” as a title, but due to the popularity of the first game, it would make sense for the panel to use this as the title. While the main subject the panel touched upon was the “Tetranomical Breakthrough” idea of the current Jump Square, one of the “partially” related points was the “The Big Reveal” of the upcoming Jump Square Game. The announcement began with a comment from an editor of the magazine in regards to recent games. The editor stated that they have had the opportunity to play the new Jump Square, and while the majority felt that it was a very polished game, one particular reviewer suggested that the game was “not just good
