Bandai Namco Games began streaming a teaser promotional video for its upcoming Kaitō Joker: Toki o Koeru Kaitō to Ushinawareta Hōseki (Mysterious Joker: The Phantom Thief Who Crosses Time & the Lost Gem) Nintendo 3DS game inspired by Hideyasu Takahashi's Kaito Joker manga and anime adaptation.
The game will star both Joker and Hachi as they adventure together, solving puzzles with various clues and tools, including Joker's Image Gum and Joker Vision. The "epiphany phantom thief action" game is scheduled to be released in Japan sometime this year.
Hideyasu Takahashi is serializing the manga in Monthly Corocoro Comics. The manga won the children's category of the 58th Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2013. It inspired the first season of the anime, which Crunchyroll began streaming last October. The second season was announced last December, and will premiere on April 6.
