Well this could be interesting. All the way back in 2000, Dragon Ball artist Akira Toriyama created a short series called Sand Land. It's just eight chapters in length, fitting neatly into one manga volume that can still be bought today. It tells the story of a world where water is in incredibly short supply, and the people are ruled over by a tyrant king. The main character, Beelzebub, and his ragtag band of allies, end up standing against the oppressive regime.
It's a charming little story, bolstered greatly by Toriyama's trademark art style and attention to detail. And now, Bandai Namco has announced that it's doing something with the property. A video game adapatation could certainly work, given the overall strength and brevity of the source material.
However, we currently have no idea as to what shape this game could take. For all we know, it's a mobile title — so let's not jump the gun just yet.
Fortunately, we won't have to wait long for more information. The publisher has a second reveal planned for the 17th of this month. If it does turn out to be PlayStation related, we'll be sure to cover it.
