Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced three new characters who will join the roster of the upcoming anime-based action game Tokyo Ghoul Re: CALL to EXIST.
The characters are as follows, directly from Bandai Namco’s press release:
“Nishiki Nishio, the S-rank ghoul nicknamed “Serpent;” Shu Tsukiyama, the infamous ghoul known as “Gourmet;” and Touka Kirishima, the ghoul who manages the ‘:re” coffee shop.”
You can check out a batch of artwork and screenshots showcasing the new characters below.
Tokyo Ghoul Re: CALL to EXIST is scheduled to release for PS4 and PC via Steam in 2019.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it prompts the game to pick up the role of a ghoul or investigator in a battle for survival set across the anime series Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul√A , and Tokyo Ghoul:Re, aired respectively in 2014, 2015, and 2018.
The franchise started as a manga by Sui Ishida in 2011, serialized on Weekly Young Jump until 2014. Re: was also sparked by the manga serialized between 2014 and 2018.
Forays into other media like light novels, a live-action film, and more are also a thing, making this an actual cross-media franchise. It’ll be interesting to see if this new game will expand its appeal.
