World Trigger Manga Gets Smartphone Game This Year
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 16th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump will announce on Monday that Daisuke Ashihara's World Trigger manga will get a smartphone game titled World Trigger: Smash Borders this year. The "aim and hit smash action" iOS and Android game will be free to play, but players can make in-game purchases.
The announcement notes that players will control a team Trion soldiers to carry out defense missions from the Borders headquarters to repel Neighbor invasions. Players take aim at the Neighbors and shoot them to blow them away like playing billiards. If players can link attacks between members of a team, they can deal much more damage.
Daisuke Ashihara debuted the original World Trigger manga in Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2013. Viz Media added the series to its digital anthology version of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it published the first print volume on October 7.
