Video Game Creators Daisuke Ishiwatari and Toshimichi Mori Will Attend FanimeCon 2010 as Guests of Honor

San Jose, CA, USA / Yokohama, Japan (April 9, 2010) — FanimeCon, Aksys Games, and Arc System Works are proud to announce video game creators Daisuke Ishiwatari and Toshimichi Mori as Guests of Honor at FanimeCon 2010, which is being held over Memorial Day weekend, May 28th to May 31st, at the San Jose Convention Center.

Mr. Daisuke Ishiwatari is famous for creating the Guilty Gear video game series. While he denies having created the game single-handedly, his extensive work on the series includes an eclectic assortment of talents: “I was entertained by the idea that I could create a game, and got my toes wet in areas like concept, planning, direction, design, music, writing, and voice acting.” He also composed the soundtrack for the BlazBlue series of video games.

Mr. Toshimichi Mori has many talents as well. He not only directed and produced the BlazBlue video game series but also designed the characters and wrote the scenarios. Mr. Mori played many video games growing up, and he decided to create them when an amazing RPG made him realize, “I want to make a game like THIS!”

BlazBlue is the latest anime-style fighting game series from Arc System Works. Aksys Games will be showing a preview of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the second installment, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, at FanimeCon 2010.


Aksys Games will  host a Q&A panel with the famous duo! So remember to bring all your questions and shikishi for the signing at the end! Don’t forget to stop by our booth and show us some love and buy stuff and maybe get some free swag.
