Kuroko's Basketball 3DS Video Previews Customizable Teams (& Bear Ears)

Kuroko no Basuke -Shōri e no Kiseki- can create dream team from 4 high schools with custom outfits

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the second promotional video for the Kuroko no Basuke -Shōri e no Kiseki- (Kuroko's Basketball -The Path to Victory-) game on Monday.

The game tells an original story, set just before the Winter Cup tournament. It features anime characters Tetsuya Kuroko (Kenshō Ono), Taiga Kagami (Yūki Ono), Ryōta Kise (Ryōhei Kimura), Shintarō Midorima (Daisuke Ono), Daiki Aomine (Junichi Suwabe), Atsushi Murasakibara (Kenichi Suzumura), "Emperor" Seijūrō Akashi (Hiroshi Kamiya), Makoto Hanamiya (Jun Fukuyama), and Tatsuya Himuro (Kishô Taniyama) in super-deformed style with voices for every line of dialogue.

Players can create their own dream teams after they beat the Seirin High, Kaijō High, Shūtoku High, and Tōō Academy versions. Players can choose the best players from each high school and continue playing with the "freedom version" feature after completing the main game.

The game will also allow players to change characters' outfits and add accessories like glasses and bear ears. In the original Kuroko's Basketball manga and its anime adaptations, the characters Riko and Momoi sometimes appear in a bear shirt similar to the one shown in the video.

A playable demo of the game is available to download for the Nintendo 3DS via a QR code printed in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, the home of the original manga. More downloadable content will also be available to players after they beat the game. Additional content will allow fans to see what happens after the events in the main game. As a bonus, a player's first download will be free.

Production I.G's television anime adaptation premiered last spring and the second season premiered this past fall. Crunchyroll is streaming the second season as it airs in Japan.

Kuroko no Basuke -Shōri e no Kiseki- will ship in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on February 20, 2014. The first copies of the game will include a downloade code for another free story episode.
