Today Tokyo-based developer Gamegate announced the Japanese release date of the upcoming mobile JRPG Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova – Re:Birth.
The game will launch really soon, on May 15 for iOS and Android.
On top of this, we learn that it passed 200,000 pre-registration, which isn’t bad at all for a title of this kind.
If you’re not familiar with Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova-, it’s an anime TV series aired in Japan in 2013, inspired by the manga by Ark Performance that is still being serialized in Japan on the Young King OURs magazine since its debut in 2009.
It’s one of the many examples among the increasingly crowded genre of anime and games mixing military vehicles and waifus, which is really popular among the otaku crowd both in Japan and in the west.
If you want to take a look at the game, you can watch another gameplay trailer showing combat, one showcasing the gacha, one focusing on the home base, another showing the locker, the original announcement that also included the first images and another trailer introducing the game.
Arpeggio of Blue Steel – Ars Nova – Re:Birth has not been announced for the west, at the moment.
