The tech giant further added that the animations and characters for Champion Island Games are created by STUDIO4°C, a Tokyo, Japan-based animation studio.
The developers of the game said that they have identified stories, folktales and highly recognized characters from all over Japan, and connected them to build the game. "In the design process, each event champion was selected from those unique stories," they added.
