SNK Announces a Completely New RPG for Smartphones


SNK has announced a completely new RPG for smartphones in Japan.

The new game is described as combining an “academic story” combined with “hero drama,” and its poised for a release sometime this year.

It’s worth mentioning the company is currently taking applications for voice actors to fill the roles of the game’s mascot character.

We’re supposed to get further information regarding the project sometime this spring.

    SNK have been pretty on point recently. Hopefully they won’t invest too much into mobile gaming and work on some new IPs for consoles as well.

    That’s the most beautiful stereotypical protagonist since Mario and Luigi. Japanese and their campy racism. Gotta love it…

  • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

    This kind of stories at anime/manga/video games existed before My Hero Academia you know.

    Doesn’t change the fact that the characters look like they came out of it.
