The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition Launches 2022

Playstation cult classic returns with additional features, new islands to explore and peer-to-peer multiplayer.

JUNE 8TH 2022, KYOTO, JAPAN – Independent development studio Q-Games today revealed details of The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition, an online social action game that will launch later this year on PlayStation 4 with enhancements for PlayStation 5. Following the game’s initial release in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2016, Q-Games acquired the rights to The Tomorrow Children last year and have since been working to develop a revival that contains a wealth of new content and features. You can watch the newly revealed announcement trailer below.

The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition takes place within an alternate future following a failed experiment to unite the minds of all humanity. The return of civilization now lies in the hands of Projection Clones; new life forms capable of venturing deep into the Void in search of preserved human survivors. Only through their determination and cooperation may humanity be restored.

Players are invited to explore over 40 enigmatic islands to mine resources, unearth treasure and begin rebuilding what was lost, all while collaborating with other Projection Clones online. The upcoming release of The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition also brings with it a series of new features that include multiple new islands to discover, an in-depth tutorial, never before seen items and new ways to play.

With community feedback in mind, Q-Games spent a lot of time reverting the game back to its intended design to provide a premium experience. This decision ensured that The Tomorrow Children will remain playable indefinitely and as part of the design changes, the game no longer relies on a central server and all micro-transactions have been removed.

Dylan Cuthbert, Game Director and Founder of Q-Games said:

“Today marks an incredibly special day for our team here in Kyoto, as we reveal full details of our game’s revival. The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition seemed an appropriate title for the years-long project we embarked on to resurrect The Tomorrow Children for our fans, who never gave up on the game even after it went offline.

We’ve focused on improvements to help those new to the game get started, made changes based on feedback from veteran players and added in a series of new islands, items and ways to play. This wealth of changes allowed us to rebalance the game in new and exciting ways and I’m already looking forward to visiting player towns when we launch later this year!”

The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition will release later this year as a premium title with peer- to-peer multiplayer support and a host of new features on PlayStation 4 with enhancements for PlayStation 5. Regular updates are being shared by the team at Q-Games through their newsletter, including interviews, exclusive preview footage and early access to the latest news.
