Mages. and 5pb. will release their Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness game for Android devices on August 18.
The Android version's support for Google Play Game Service will offer a companion app that will let players communicate with characters and play mini-games. Similar to the iOS release, which launched on July 27, the Android version will cost 4,800 yen. However, the game will be available for 2,000 yen from August 18 to August 27.
The game launched in Japan for Xbox One in Japan in May 2015. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita ports shipped in March 2016. 5pb. released the game on the Xbox One in Hong Kong last November with both English and Chinese subtitles. NIS America released the game for the PS4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe last September, then released the game on PC via Steam on April 24.
Nitroplus created an original story for the game with Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) providing the original plan and scenario supervision. The game is set within the timeframe of the first six episodes of the first television anime season. However, it shifts the setting from downtown to an isolated island.
One new male and female character each serve as the two protagonists who face off against a new enemy. Characters from the Unit 1 police team of the Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division return for the game. The anime's Kyoji Asano (Attack on Titan, Tokyo Marble Chocolate) also returned to design characters based on Reborn! creator Akira Amano's original designs.
