Toei Animation announced on Wednesday that the Slam Dunk anime is getting a smartphone game app produced by DeNA. The game is titled Seiki-han Sumaho Game Slam Dunk (Regular Edition Smartphone Game Slam Dunk), and it is slated for release in China.
The game will be on display at China International Comics and Games Expo (CCG Expo), which will be held at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center from July 5-9, and pre-registration is available on the game's official website. In addition, DeNA's booth will offer a bonus item to attendees.
The game will let players utilize the skills of Slam Dunk characters such as Hanamichi Sakuragi and Kaede Rukawa to compete against other players in basketball games in real time. The game's official website will reveal more details in the future.
The television anime inspired by Takehiko Inoue's original manga premiered in 1993, and it inspired four anime film sequels. Crunchyroll is streaming the series, and it describes the story:
Hanamichi Sakuragi is a delinquent with a long history of getting dumped by girls. After enrolling in Shohoku High School, Hanamichi becomes interested in a girl named Haruko who loves the game of basketball.
Cinedigm released Slam Dunk season one, volume one on English dub-only DVD in May 2015. Toei released four DVD volumes of the anime with an English dub in 2005 before ceasing its direct distribution plans in North America.
