Tadatoshi Fujimaki's high school basketball manga Kuroko no Basuke is inspiring a PSP game titled Kuroko no Basuke: Kiseki no Game (Kuroko no Basuke: Game of Miracles). The simulation game has the player training a basketball team "with confidence."
In the story, Taiga Kagami (played by Yuuki Ono) has just enrolled into Seirin High School when he meets Tetsuya Kuroko (Kensho Ono) of the school's basketball team. Kuroko happens to be the shadowy sixth member of the legendary "Generation of Miracles" basketball team. Together, Kagami and Kuroko aim to take their team to the inter-high school championship — against Kuroko's former teammates.
The manga has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since 2008, and Production I.G's television anime adaptation will premiere on April 7. Shunsuke Tada (The Prince of Tennis, Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations) is directing the anime, and Noboru Takagi (Durarara!!, Baccano!) is in charge of the scripts. Yoko Kikuchi (Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations, Noir) is designing the characters.
