NIS America Confirms Black Rock Shooter the Game License

posted on by Egan Loo
Release date for N. America/Europe to be announced

The anime and game distributor NIS America confirmed on Wednesday that it licensed Black Rock Shooter the Game for the PSP platform in North America and Europe. The release schedule will be announced "in the near future."

The story takes place in 2032 AD after Earth has been assaulted by aliens for 19 years. A battle android named BRS is created solely for the purpose of saving Earth, but she comes to find that only 12 human beings are left on the planet.

The Black Rock Shooter franchise also inspired an original video anime, figures, and games. The artist ringo launched the Black Rock-chan four-panel manga in the inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten's 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine in March, and Sanami Suzuki (Net Ghost PiPoPa) launched another Black Rock Shooter: Innocent Soul manga in Young Ace magazine in June. A new anime television series will air in Fuji TV's Noitama time slot in Japan in January.
