Message from President and CEO, Hiroshi Matsuyama

We would like to work with people who have a love
for CyberConnect2 and our titles.

CyberConnect2, who has worked on titles like the .hack series, the NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja series, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, is actually working on their first self-published game Fuga: Melodies of Steel.
Up until now, for most of our titles, the translation and linguistic tests were handled by the publisher. However, for our self-published titles, we are looking to work directly with people who have a love of Japanese games, anime and manga, and a love of CyberConnect2’s works. In short, people who want to work on what they love.

In accordance with this, whether you are a pro or amateur, we are currently recruiting translators and linguistic testers to help with the localization work.
We're looking to receive applications from those of you who have a love and passion for games, anime and manga content, and would like to get involved with localization. If you also have interest in our titles, we would definitely love to hearing from you!

Let’s make some great original content that people all over the world can enjoy together!
