Bye! My name is Yosuke Futami, the producer of SINDUALITY. On behalf of the team, we are thrilled to finally reveal our brand new third-person sci-fi shooter from Bandai Namco Entertainment.

It all started a couple of years ago when our team got together and passionately discussed how we can break in or even break the entire barrier of the sci-fi genre. With the emergence of technology these days and how artificial intelligence is slowly becoming more important in our daily lives, we were particularly interested in how humans and AI would interact with each other in the future. Will they coexist? Do they have the same belief in feelings or in the meaning of emotions? Can they intertwine? These were the questions that ultimately became an exodus of this project, and I hope you will join us in understanding together the adventures that await them.

SINDUALITY is set in a dystopian future where poison rain and warped creatures ravage the world, where you and your AI partner must find a way to work together and reclaim lost ground for humanity. In addition to the excitement, we partnered with prominent designers Neco (for character design) and Gyobu (for mech design) to bring their unique sci-fi style to the game.

In this new dystopian city, in an attempt to maintain their existence, they come across an artificial intelligence named Magus. Not knowing how things will work between them, the story begins of how humans and AI coincide and try to find their truths.
