Game studio 5pb and Tsuburaya Productions have announced that Specium;Boys is going to be a very real game indeed, giving the saying “it’s funny because it’s true” new meaning.
Specium;Boys was first announced on April Fool’s Day this year. However, readers soon caught on to the text at the bottom of the Japanese site that said: “This is April Fool’s Day.” As with most online April Fool’s jokes, it was soon forgotten.
Fast forward to today, where 5pb has announced that the real joke is that they were not joking at all! Specium;Boys’ announcement site just went live, albeit with a new logo and possibly entirely different character designs, judging by the silhouettes in the background.
