With plans in the works for a bit for a new anime from the Z/X game franchise, we learned in Februray 2018 about the Z/X Code reunion project that adapts the manga of the same name.

Plot Concept: Set in the not-so-distant future, five “Black Points” suddenly appeared around the world as portals to parallel worlds. Immediately after, strange creatures began their invasion from these portals. These creatures are the inhabitants of five worlds — the same worlds in different timeframes. In order to ensure their own future timeframe survives, each of the five invasion forces battle to wipe the other future timeframes out. The key is one card-shaped device.
