Makai Ōji: Devils and Realist Manga Gets Nintendo 3DS Game

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Seven Seas to publish supernatural manga; anime to premiere in July

Namco Bandai Games opened a teaser website for the Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist - Dairi-Ō no Hihō (The Secret Treasure of the Acting Ruler) Nintendo 3DS game on Monday. Currently the website only features the game's logo.

Utako Yukihiro and Madoka Takadono's Makai Ōji: Devils and Realist manga launched in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero Sum magazine in 2009. The story revolves around William, an aristocratic family's progeny with rare intellect. One day, his uncle lost his possessions after his business failed. Fearing that his family's name has been tarnished, William returns home and searches with his family's butler for anything that can be converted into cash.

A search of the premises yields an underground room left by an ancestor. In the room is a magical seal, and William unintentionally summons a devil. The summoned devil tells William his name is Dantalion, and reveals that William is the "Elector" who can choose the next acting ruler of Hell.

An anime series adaptation will premiere in July. Seven Seas Entertainment just announced on Friday that it licensed the original manga for North America.
