The team at thatgamecompany—the developers known for acclaimed titles like Journey, Flower and more—have big plans to expand their Sky: Children of Light game. In addition to some game updates, the studio took to the main stage at Anime Japan 2022 to announce a special animation project based on Sky, offering up a quick look at the work in progress in the form of a teaser video.


The stage event also introduced voice actor Yuki Kaji (Eren in Attack on Titan) as Sky‘s official celebrity ambassador and influencer partner in Japan. 


Check out the world of Sky as depicted in concept art and storyboard animation: 



More details will be revealed in the future. 


As for the Sky: Children of Light game itself, a Days of Bloom spring event is on the way along with a behind-the-scenes video. There will also be new ways for players to connect and share their artistic passions through the upcoming Shared Memories feature, which will launch with the new season that starts on April 11.


In the meantime, you can take a look at the journey so far in the Sky: Children of Light Anime Japan trailer:



Beyond the animation project and the game, thatgamecompany has a bunch of global community projects planned, including local gatherings and a Sky-based crafting corner. Here’s an overview of what’s on the way:


    • Sky Assemblies – For the first time, Sky fans around the world will get a chance to host their own community events to connect and celebrate together via in-person gatherings. Inspired by the game’s Season of Assembly, which told a warm tale of friends coming together for fun and fellowship, Sky Assemblies are produced and coordinated by Sky’s community team and are meant to bring players together safely to celebrate Sky as a shared interest through themed activities such as arts and crafts, trivia, in-game challenges, and more. The studio hopes that this is yet another way to connect people around the world to build lasting, life-enriching connections.
    • Sky Crafting Corner – A new Sky community initiative giving a different opportunity to players and fans around the world to celebrate through the art of crafts based on Sky’s seasonal events.
