The official Twitter account for the smartphone strategy role-playing game Shachō, Battle no Jikan Desu! (President, It's Time for Battle!) announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. The anime will air on television next year.
The isekai (alternate-world) strategy role-playing game game is set in a world where dimensional gates suddenly appeared in the skies, opening portals to countless dungeons. The story imagines if the player is a company president who employs adventurers to take on dungeons filled with monsters for the treasures that lie within. The player "recruits" or trains fighters, mages, knights, hunters, rogues, and other classes of employees, and then dispatches the employees into battles.
Kadokawa, Deluxe Games, and Preapp Partners launched the game for iOS and Android devices on October 17. The game is free to play with fees for certain in-game items. Masahiro Yamamoto (Disgaea franchise) directs the game, and artists such as Asao Urata, Genyaky, Naoki Saitō, Haruta, and Mine Yoshizaki (Sgt. Frog, Kemono Friends) drew the illustrations.
