Today Tokyo-based developer Gamegate released the first gameplay trailer of the upcoming mobile JRPG Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova- Re:Birth.
This time around, we get to see a proper naval battle (Arpeggio-style, of course) starring the three Kongou-class sisters Kongou, Haruna, and Kirishima (in her teddy bear version).
We also get to see some of the menus, including the mission and character select screens.
If you’re not familiar with Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova-, it’s an anime TV series aired in 2013, inspired by the manga by Ark Performance that is still being serialized in Japan on Young King OURs since its debut in 2009. Like most others in the always prolific genre of anime and games mixing vehicles and waifus, it’s rather popular among the otaku crowd.
At the moment, the game has passed 150,000 pre-registrations, and it appears to have managed to grab some attention among the fans of the genre and of the anime series.
You can check out the trailer below, alongside the original announcement that also included the first images and another trailer introducing the game.
Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova- Re:Birth will be released in Japan down the line for iOS and Android.
