Do you like the series that explains the life of the creator such as New Game? Boy, this anime will sate your slice-of-life taste. 16-bit Sensation will follow how the 1990s game creator designed their game.
The story was created by Misato Mitsumi, Tatsuki Amazuyu, and Tamiki Wakaki as doujinshi at Comiket 2016. From then on, Kadokawa Shoten started publishing a total of 2 volumes in 2021.
Based on the original premise, the story will explain how the classic game was created using a 16-bit system computer. But, the story will most likely turn into something entirely different. The official has confirmed that the series will bring a new story apart from the source.
So, when we can expect the series to be broadcast? Rest assured because we’ve covered the information related to the series below. Read on!
16bit Sensation: Another Layer Release Date
After having an adaptation announcement at the Comiket 101 convention in December 2022, the official website finally revealed the broadcast time of the series. It is confirmed that the anime will begin airing in October 2023. Unfortunately, the exact date has yet to be announced.
Though the month is coming near, it is odd that the anime has yet to release a single PV. The good news is the series will be present in Aniplex Online Fest 2023 on September 20, 2023. We can expect the PV will drop in that event. For now, they released a key visual on August 7, 2023.
The key visual only shows the series’ main character, Konoha Akisato. As per the story’s concept, the original doujinshi should be set in 1992 when the old computer with a 16-bit system is just released. Yet, somehow, the main character seems to hold an advanced tablet from the 2020s.
But it is already expected because the official has announced that the story will adopt a new story apart from the source from the 2016s Comiket. So, how the story will unfold?
