As well as being the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation brand, 2014 also marks the 15th anniversary of Sony Computer Entertainment‘s cat mascots Toro and Kuro.

Originally appearing in Doko Demo Issyo, the cats’ anniversary has been commemorated in two illustrations that have been drawn by Ken Watanabe. These images of Toro and Kuro place them in the Freedom Wars universe and instead of showing us how long they have left on their prison sentence above their heads we see the words ’15th Anniversary’.

There is also this image below by Miwa Deura from God Eater and Freedom Wars developer Shift that features the mascots and the game’s propaganda bear;
