Bandai Namco Entertainment announced during its panel at Anime Expo on Sunday that it will release the Tokyo Ghoul:re Call to Exist game for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in the West. The company did not announce a release date for the game.
Tokyo Ghoul:re Call to Exist is slated for winter on the PS4 in Japan.
The game will involve the stories of both the Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul:re manga, and will also have online multiplayer. Bandai Namco Entertainment noted that players can choose between the side of ghouls or investigators in the game, with both Haise Sasaki and Ken Kaneki as playable characters.
Funimation recently released the Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War smartphone game. Sui Ishida's manga also inspired the 2017 Tokyo Ghoul:re Invoke smartphone game, the 2015 Tokyo Ghoul carnaval∫color smartphone game, and the 2015 Tokyo Ghoul Jail PlayStation Vita game.
Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2011 to 2014, and is now serializing Tokyo Ghoul:re. The manga entered its final arc in February, and ended on July 5. Shueisha published the manga's 15th compiled volume on March 19 and will publish the 16th volume on July 19. Viz Media is releasing the sequel manga series in North America.
The first season of the Tokyo Ghoul:re anime premiered on April 3. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles. The company also released the anime's first eight episodes with an English dub alongside those episodes' premieres in Japan, before moving to a two-week delay on the ninth episode. The second season will premiere in October.
