Black Clover mobile game announced at Jump Festa 2022

A new mobile game based on Black clover is release scheduled for 2022. The editor is Pearl Abyss, who is the developer behind the MMORPG Black desert. To be more precise, Vic Game Studios, which is a subsidiary of Pearl Abyss, is working on the game. It ended up being revealed with a fairly lengthy trailer during Jump Festa 2022. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The game trailer for Black Clover Mobile (working title) lasts about four minutes. At the bottom, a disclaimer says the trailer only uses scenes from the game, meaning what we see in the trailer is what it will actually look like. The game will also allow players to relive key scenes from the anime. Indeed, the trailer almost looks like a retread of the series.

Besides Asta and Yuno, you will be able to collect Black clover characters to form your own magical team. It’s still unclear how you earn characters. Since this is a mobile game, however, it’s quite likely that there is some sort of gacha system involved.

This is not the first Black clover the game will be available on smartphones. Bandai Namco has released a Kingdom Defense RPG, Black Clover: Ghost Knights, in 2018. However, it closed on December 9, 2020. Bandai Namco did not specify a reason. While the global version for Ghost knights launched in 2020 (two years after the game’s initial release), there is no news as to whether or not Black Clover Mobile will do it abroad.

Black Clover Mobile will be released on iOS and Android devices in 2022. A movie is also in development.
