Game slated for release in Japan this year
Frontwing began streaming a 90-second commercial on Sunday for the Grisaia: Chronos Rebellion smartphone game. The video features the opening song "Shinsekai" (New World) performed by Yoshino Nanjō, and also previews the characters and voice cast.
The "beautiful girl national defense RPG" is slated for release this year. The game will be free to play with in-app purchases. Pre-registration is available now.
The Grisaia: Phantom Trigger game inspired a crowdfunded anime that opened on March 15 at Tokyo's EJ Anime Theater Shinjuku and at four other theaters in Japan. The Campfire crowdfunding campaign for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger the Animation Stargazer, the sequel to the anime of Frontwing's Grisaia: Phantom Trigger game, reached its 10 million yen (about US$92,000) goal less than 24 hours after it launched on July 26. As of press time, the campaign has raised 18,822,652 yen (about US$176,036). The campaign will end on September 30.
Video game and visual novel translation company Sekai Project launched Frontwing's The Fruit of Grisaia on Steam in 2015 after meeting its Kickstarter goal for a Western release of the game trilogy. Frontwing and Sekai Project have also released other two games, The Labyrinth of Grisaia and The Eden of Grisaia, on Steam. All three of the original games inspired anime and manga adaptations.
