posted on by Kiara Valdez
Japanese game publisher GREE has launched a new website for its upcoming Log Horizon ~Aratanaru Bouken no Diichi~ (Log Horizon ~Land of New Adventure~) mobile role-playing game. The game will be released on iOS and Android this coming winter.
The free-to-play game will include the original characters and setting, as well characters written specifically for the game. Additionally, players who pre-register will receive the limited SR Akatsuki playable character.
Mamare Touno's original story centers on Elder Tales, an online fantasy RPG that has become popular worldwide. But when its twelfth expansion package, "Cultivate the Noosphere," is installed, thirty thousand players in Japan are trapped inside. Among them is grad student Shiroe, who isn't very good at interacting with others. But to survive in a world full of monsters, he forms a guild called "Log Horizon" with an eclectic group of other players.
Touno debuted his novel on the user-generated content site Shōsetsuka ni Narō in 2010. Motoya Matsu then launched his Log Horizon Gaiden: Honey Moon Logs manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Deneaki Daioh magazine that same year. Kazuhiro Hara began serializing the main manga adaptation on Enterbrain's Famitsu Comic Clear website in 2012 also, and Koyuki began drawing another manga called Log Horizon - Nishikaze no Ryodan in Fujimi Shobo's Age Premium website in 2012.
