Bandai Namco Games began streaming a teaser promotional video for Assassination Classroom: Kuro-Sensei Dai Houimou (Assassination Classroom Koro-Sensei Great Besiegement) , its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game based on Yusei Matsui's Assassination Classroom manga.
. Bandai Namco is also streaming a shorter version:
In the "comical assassin action" game, players create their own avatar to become a student of class 3-E, interact with the characters from the manga, and set traps to try to kill their teacher.
Viz Media will publish the first volume of the manga in North America in December. Viz Media describes the story:
A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he's the best teacher they've ever had!
Matsui launched Assassination Classroom in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2012. The series ranked number seven in Japan's top-selling manga for 2013. It already inspired an event anime by director Keiji Gotoh (Kiddy Grade, Sengoku Collection, Uta∽Kata) and the studio Brains Base last year.
