Gendo Finally Steps Up as Support Character in Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur Mobile Game
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Gendo Ikari, contender for worst anime dad, is stepping up to provide Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur players with something he never gave Shinji — support.
Square Enix's mobile game is currently collaborating with Neon Genesis Evangelion. The game added Shinji, Kaworu, Mari, Rei and Asuka as gacha characters earlier and is now adding Gendo as a "Support Fairy" on Wednesday. Gendo wouldn't be the same without his second-in-command Kōzō Fuyutsuki, who is also being added.
The game collaboration is a spin-off of the ongoing Godzilla x Evangelion campaign that began two months ago with an April Fool's joke. It's since spawned merchandise and other goods as well as artwork by kaiju designer Yuji Kaida and Shinji Nishikawa.
Godzilla is also appearing in Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur as a boss. Square Enix is promoting the crossover with the hashtag "#ゴジエヴァ参戦" (#GojiEvaWar).
Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur is an expanded four-player "character command RPG" followup mobile game to Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur. The card battle role-playing game centers on the true King Arthur who pulls a sword from a stone — except there are a million people who claim the title, each with an Excalibur sword.
The original game was once available in English but Gamevil terminated all game services for North America and Europe servers on December 7, 2015.
