New Kuroko's Basketball 3DS Game's 1st Promo Streamed

3rd Kuroko's Basketball game for a portable system to ship on March 26

Bandai Namco began streaming the first promotional trailer for the upcoming Kuroko no Basket: Mirai e no Kizuna (Kuroko's Basketball: Ties to the Future) "miraculous basketball action game" for the Nintendo 3DS system on Sunday.

Kuroko and Kagami narrate the video, explaining that the upcoming game will be a "Basketball action" title. Not only can the player control the characters, but he/she may also increase the number of courts to play on, and also explore town freely. When making a basketball team, the player can make an original team with characters from other schools. The story for the game is all-new, and events will be fully-voiced.

The game will ship on March 26 for 5,690 yen (about US$48). First copies of the game will come bundled with a "Dramatic Sound Novel" titled "Teikō Junior High: A Miraculous Day," as well as a download code to receive a "Teikō Junior High Uniform" costume. The game will be the third Kuroko's Basketball game released for a portable gaming system.

Unlike the previous 3DS game, the new one lets players move characters freely around the court. Characters are bigger onscreen, and the power of special moves has been increased. The game will also offer a part where characters can go around town to chat and deal with game-original events.

The first portable Kuroko's Basketball game, Kuroko no Basket: Kiseki no Game (Kuroko's Basketball: Miraculous Game), debuted on the PSP in 2012. The second game, Kuroko no Basuke -Shōri e no Kiseki- (Kuroko's Basketball -The Path to Victory-), shipped for the 3DS this past February.
