posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming an introduction video on Friday for Hunter x Hunter Greed Adventure, the new smartphone game based on Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter manga .
The 3D action role-playing game will launch this winter. The game will be free to play, with in-game purchases available.
The game will take place after the manga's "Greed Island" arc, after Gon and his friends have cleared Greed Island, and after the evolution of the main leadership at the Hunter Association. The game takes place in a new "Greed Island 2" (G.I.2) game that was rebuilt from the original "Greed Island" to train Hunters.
The game will feature the original character Sofika, voiced by Sora Tokui. She is a mysterious girl who has some relation to the Game Master of G.I.2, and who joins Gon and Killua on their journey.
The Hunter x Hunter anime staff are cooperating on the game's worldview, original characters, and setting. The game will feature new story as well as story from the original manga.
Battles are touch-based, and players can summon characters from the franchise and use skill cards. Pre-registration is available now.
Togashi resumed the Hunter x Hunter manga on September 22 after a five-month hiatus. The manga inspired two television anime series; the latest one ran from 2011 until 2014. The manga also inspired two anime films and several original video anime titles.
