This year's combined 21st and 22nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that Vanessa Enoteca is joining the Black Clover: Quartet Knights game as a playable character.
The game's playable characters so far include Asta, Yuno, Noelle Silva, Mimosa Vermillion, Gauche Adlai, Magna Swing, Luck Voltia, Yami Sukehiro, and an original female character named Karuna. The character listing on the game's official website has placeholders for nine more characters, but the website isn't yet listing Karuna or Vanessa.
The game will allow for four-vs.-four matches, and players will make their own teams to participate in cooperative battles and face off against rivals.
Yūki Tabata launched the original manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2015, and the manga has more than 4.8 million copies in print. Viz Media is publishing the series digitally and in print in North America.
The television anime adaptation premiered in Japan on October 3, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles. Funimation began streaming the show's English dub on October 29. The anime will have 51 episodes. The show debuted on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block on December 2.
