Smartphone game releases this year

A stage event at the AnimeJapan 2017 event announced on Saturday that Marvelous, Kadokawa, and Idea Factory's Otomate otome game brand's upcoming collaborative Sengoku Night Blood smartphone game is getting a television anime adaptation that will premiere in fall 2017. Marvelous began streaming a video for the game that reveals the anime project and previews the game's cast. (Note: The linked video is region locked to Japan.)

The game is slated for release on iOS and Android in 2017. The game centers around different warlords from Japan's Warring States (Sengoku) period, who are all involved with the player character. The game is described as a "Warring States romance fantasy." Each of the six factions in the game will feature a different Otomate artist.

The original game features the following cast:

Vampires/Oda Army

Vampires/Toyotomi Army

Werewolves/Uesugi Army

Werewolves/Takeda Army

Werewolves/Sanada Army

Werewolves/Date Army

Original character designers for the game include: Usaba Kagero (Wand of Fortune) for the Oda Army, Mai Hanamura (Amnesia) for the Toyotomi Army, Shikisakigumi (Hakuōki) for the Uesugi Army, miko (Code:Realize) for the Takeda Army, Kuroyuki (Period:Cube) for the Sanada Army, and Teita (Norn9) for the Date Army.
