The newly formed Japanese division of Belarus-based online gaming company Wargaming.net announced a collaboration on Thursday between the television anime Girls und Panzer and the online game World of Tanks. The game is being localized for Japan and will be available on September 5. Details of the collaboration will be announced soon.
World of Tanks is a massive multi-player online action game that launched in Russia in 2010. Players engage in tank battles based on armored warfare in the mid-20th century. Currently, there are over 500,000 players worldwide.
ACTAS and Tsutomu Mizushima's Girls und Panzer television anime series debuted last October and was streamed in several regions outside of Japan by Crunchyroll. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video distribution in North America later this year.
