Bandai Namco Games began streaming two 15-second television commercials for Kuroko no Basuke: Kiseki no Game (Kuroko's Basketball: Game of Miracles) PlayStation Portable game on Wednesday. The game is based on Tadatoshi Fujimaki's Kuroko no Basuke high school basketball manga. The simulation game has the player training a basketball team "with confidence."
The cast from the television anime adaptation of Fujimaki's manga are reprising their roles for the game. Bandai Namco Games will release Kuroko no Basuke: Kiseki no Game in Japan on August 9 for 5,230 yen (about US$66). The downloadable version will come with a code that will allow the player to download a custom Kuroko no Basuke theme for the PSP.
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. Production I.G's television anime adaptation premiered in April, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series in various countries outside of Japan as it airs.
