A new IP is coming from the UK's most renown animators Aardman Animation, the creators of Morph, Wallace and Gromit and much more. Aardman will be working alongside Japanese developers/publishers Bandai Namco, who though now merged have had games in the industry almost as long as Aardman has been producing animation. Thanks to a recent article by GamesIndustry.Biz, we learnt that the two companies will be working on an all-new IP that is anticipated to span across multiple projects. Bristol-based Aardman Animations have worked with Bandai Namco in the past, to bring us 11-11 Memories Retold, A narrative-driven adventure game that tells the story from both sides of the trenches during WW1. This emotional story is available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 if you want to learn more about Aardman and Bandai Namco's last collaboration.

The first part of this project is planned to "exist across multiple media" which is open to a lot of interpretation. Personally, I am hoping we see a feature-length animation from Aardman to support the title's release. We haven't seen a lot of details from either party yet as the work for this new IP is slowly ramping up, we expect to see more from both parties in 2021. The Managing Director for Aardman Animations was also quoted saying: "With new emerging technology blurring the lines of watching and playing, we are keen to develop strategic partnerships with partners such as Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe that share our vision of creating new IP that embraces this new world and cement our studio's reputation as a multi-disciplinary creative hub." With this quote, I believe we are going to see another narrative-driven title from the two studios that will feel like a movie we are a part of as the player.
