Nevertheless, he’s making time to direct Fate/Extra CCC‘s opening intro, which is being produced by animation studio Shaft, the upcoming issue of Type-Moon Ace magazine is revealing on Friday (available in Japanese book stores December 15).
Outside of revealing Akiyuki Shinbo’s involvement in the opening intro for Imageepoch and Type-Moon’s upcoming PSP JRPG Fate/Extra CCC, the January 2013 (Vol.8) issue of Type-Moon Ace also has got several new images of the game, as well as some new key visual images for Type-Moon’s other highly-anticipated project, a remake of Tsukihime.
