Otome Y?sha Smartphone Game Slated for Mid-December in Japan
Level 5 began streaming two promotional videos for its Otome Yūsha (Otomé HERO) iOS and Android game on Thursday, revealing that the game is slated to launch in Japan in mid-December.
Level 5 initially planned to release the game for iOS and Android devices in Japan last winter, but it has been delayed multiple times since. The latest trailer revealed a winter 2017 release window.
The game will feature 24 male Slayer characters that players can both use in battle and develop relationships with. Chinatsu Kurahana (Uta no Prince Sama, Aquarion Evol, Samurai Flamenco) is designing the characters. The game will be free to play, but in-game items will cost extra. Fairy Tail Brave Saga developer h.a.n.d. is developing the game, and A-1 Pictures is providing animation.
When Level 5 announced the game, it also revealed plans to develop an anime and manga.
Level 5 previously confirmed via press release that “there is no plan to release [the game] outside of Japan as of yet.”
