posted on 2014-01-08 01:00 EST
The official Sega Store on Enterbrain's online shopping site Ebten lists the Hero Bank game with "a Spring 2014 anime adaptation green-lit." The listing adds that the franchise will expand beyond the Nintendo 3DS "money battle role-playing game" with a television anime after the game's March 20 release.
The game centers around Kaito, an elementary school boy who is suddenly burdened with 10 billion yen (about US$100 million) in debt one day. The only way he can pay off the debt is to master "Hero-Gi" (downloaded off the net) and win matches in "Hero Battle," a new-generation cyber sport. The tagline of the game "Change your money with justice!"
Shogakukan's Monthly Corocoro Comic, the No.1 manga magazine for elementary school boys, already launched a manga tie-in. Popular characters from other manga series in the magazine will be available as "Hero-Gi" in the game itself.
Here is the opening movie for the game:
