Sailor Moon and Friends Bring Magic to Monster Strike Mobile Game
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Pretty Guardians are joining the ranks of Monster Strike heroes for a limited time. Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus can join players' line-up via the game's gacha feature soon, but staff haven't announced the exact launch date.
Besides the central five heroines, the official collaboration site also revealed images of Princess Serenity, Mamoru, Tuxedo Mask, Jadeite, Zoisite, Nephrite, Kunzite, and Queen Beryl. The game will also feature the anime's original theme song "Moonlight Densetsu."
Players can also enter a lottery with chances to win real life Sailor Moon prizes starting on November 12. The "All Guardians! Campaign" will launch on the official collaboration site where users can accumulate "Moon Power" to fill the "Moon Power Meter." When enough Moon Power is collected, all Monster Strike players will receive in-game items. Eventually, the Moon Power Meter will trigger a lottery prize giveaway. Players will have a chance to win an alarm clock with recordings by Sailor Moon voice actress Kotono Mitsuishi.
The Tokyo XFLAG stores in Shibuya and Shinsaibashi are also participating in the collaboration. Shoppers can sit down and choose special food items from the collaboration menus, receive a random character card with their order, and browse limited edition merchandise.
Monster Strike previously collaborated with Sword Art Online: Alicization this summer and an earlier campaign offered players a chance to "drift" to Hawaii.
Sailor Moon Crystal, the new anime adaptation of Naoko Takeuchi's popular manga, launched as part of the series' 20th anniversary. Now moving on to its 25th anniversary, new films covering the manga's Dream Arc are currently in the works with director Chiaki Kon and character designer Kazuko Tadano.
