Today South Korean developer Vic Game Studio released a new trailer of the upcoming mobile game inspired by the Black Clover manga and anime.
The game, titled in Japanese Black Clover: Mobairu Mahōtei e no Michi -The Opening of Fate (the part in Japanese translates as "Road to the Wizard King"), is an RPG that aims to bring the excitement of the series to mobile platforms.
Today's trailer is rather special, as it reveals the song "Genkai Toppa" (Breakthrough) performed by the super-popular Japanese rock band GLAY. The video itself has been made to look pretty much like the op of an anime series, and it's rather successful at that.
You can check out what I mean below.
This Black Clover mobile game has been in development for some time and the developers have been sharing more details gradually after its announced at Jump Festa 2022 (which actually happened at the end of 2021). We know that it's coming west at some point since the official website has a section in English, albeit incomplete. A "global" closed beta test "in select regions" has also been confirmed.
While a release date has not been announced just yet, development is in the final stretch with the goal of launching in the first half of 2023 at least in Japan, following a delay from the initial 2022 target.
If you're unfamiliar with Black Clover, it debuted in 2015 as a manga by Yuuki Tabata on Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump. It's currently still ongoing. A long-running anime series and various spin-off manga have also been published, on top of two relatively mediocre games by Bandai Namco.
