Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe announced on Tuesday that they will release the Black Clover: Quartet Knights game for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on September 14. The companies also began streaming an English-subtitled story trailer for the game.
The game will launch in Japan for the PlayStation 4 on September 13. People who pre-order the game in Japan will receive a download code adding young Yami as a playable character, and a "Black Asta" skin.
The game's playable characters so far include Asta, Yuno, Noelle Silva, Mimosa Vermillion, Gauche Adlai, Magna Swing, Luck Voltia, Yami Sukehiro, young Yami Sukehiro, Vanessa Enoteca, and an original female character named Karuna. The character listing on the game's official website has placeholders for seven more characters, but the website isn't yet listing Karuna.
The third-person magic shooting 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 last October, 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 last December.
