This year's 18th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that the PS Vita adventure role-playing game Tokyo Ghoul: Masquerader will feature a new protagonist designed by original manga creator Sui Ishida. In addition, Ishida collaborating on the game's original story, which does not appear in the manga.
The protagonist is a Ghoul named Rio, "a youth who become the key to the story." To save his captured older brother, Rio is pursuing a certain character. The magazine teases a possible connection between Rio and the manga and anime's protagonist, Kaneki.
In the adventure part of the game allows players to freely travel around the 23 wards of Tokyo and talk with specific characters. By talking to characters, the player can deepen relationships with them, which can also affect the ending of the game.

A smartphone game inspired by the franchise is also in the works, and is scheduled to start service sometime this year. The second season of the Tokyo Ghoul anime, Tokyo Ghoul √A, premiered on January 8 on Tokyo MX. Funimation is streaming the series as it airs.
