All Nippon Airways and JP Games announce virtual travel project

Hajime Tabata on board as general producer.

ANA and JP Games

JP Games CEO Hajime Tabata, who directed Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0 during his time at Square Enix, is working with All Nippon Airways parent company ANA Holdings on a virtual travel project, the developer confirmed.

ANA Holdings’ virtual travel project will allow users to travel to cities created with computer graphics in a virtual space. As an airline company, ANA Holdings has been struggling due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and has high hopes for the venture.

Tabata will work on these virtual excursions as a general producer and as an official project of JP Games. It should be noted that it is a separate project from The Pegasus Dream Tour, JP Games’ official Paralympic Games title due out in 2021.

In a comment to Famitsu, Tabata said, “Using the skills and experience I gained developing RPGs, I’d like to transform travel into something beyond reality. I’ll do my best help ANA.”

Thanks, Yomiuri Shimbun.
