In our continued watch on anime studio Gonzo, to see whether they'll get things back together or fade out from existence, they've has now released the opening sequence for the MMORPG iteration of the Tower of Druaga, the classic-game-turned-anime that Gonzo produced the animation for originally.

Apparently the company had to bring back animators and other staffers who had been laid off in order to produce this animation in the first place-- but presumably the reunion was a contract one; I wouldn't go expecting Gonzo Part II.
 
 

It certainly looks good, and with luck we could hope that the money Gonzo is being paid for this might help them move forward with a new project; or perhaps the MMO will be popular enough to warrant a new animation, which Gonzo would be first choice on. Maybe they could even just continue getting work producing animation for games, like the Arcadia Saga promo video from a month or so ago.

But that's the optimistic outlook-- I couldn't tell you what to realistically expect from this point forward, unless someone comes out of left field to invest money on Gonzo.

the slight Stargate feeling that comes with the trailer hits around 2:26

See, but you know what it didn't look like... Druaga the Anime. I mean, its "looks" similar, but none of the over the top tone and humor seems present here.
 
Course, I never played the original game, but maybe the comedy is the odd part.

The only Druaga I like is the old school one.
