Action RPG adapting Hiroshi Fukuda's manga to ship on September 19

Namco Bandai Games began streaming a promotional video and TV spot for the action role-playing game adaptation of Hiroshi Fukuda's Mushibugyo manga and anime adaptation for Nintendo 3DS on Thursday. Players will be able to fight giant bugs using ninja techniques and swords, and call for help in battle from support characters. Nagatomimaru (voiced by Jun Fukuyama) narrates the promotional video, and explains the story mode, sub-story mode, suggestion box mode, and other various modes included in the game.

A physical regular edition and a downloadable version of the game will be available for 5,980 yen (about US$63) on September 19. First copies of the game will come bundled with Mushibugyō bug-repelling stickers.

Hiroshi Fukuda's original Mushibugyō action manga is set in Edo-era Tokyo in the early 1700s. The eighth shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune creates a new magistrate unit — Mushibugyō — to protect the people in the heart of the city. Each member is a specialist with unique fighting skills.

The anime adaptation of Fukuda's manga began broadcasting in Japan in April. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
