Mobile game developer KLab Inc. and Chinese developer Beijing Kunlun Lexiang Network Technology announced on Tueday that they are collaborating to develop a new smartphone game based on Tite Kubo's Bleach manga titled BLEACH Kyo・Kai-Tamashinokakusei: Shinigami (Bleach: Boundary Awakened Souls - Shinigami). The game will debut in China on the Apple App Store on November 15, and on the Google Play Store on November 22. The companies did not announce a release in any other country.
The game is a smartphone MMORPG that will feature playable characters from the manga such as Ichigo and Rukia. The game will use action game controls to take down Hollows in the city. The game also features quests and story events from the manga.
KLab launched its Bleach: Brave Souls smartphone game in Japan in July 2015 and worldwide in January 2016. The iOS and Android game is free-to-play with in-app purchases, and has reached 25 million downloads worldwide as of October 2017.
