Propelled by the success of Azur Lane, Yostar is certainly fond of the waifu-driven mobile game formula, and another is coming.
The new game is called Blue Archive and it’s coming at least in Japan in 2020 for iOS and Android.
The theme is “An RPG about finding miracles in everyday life,” and the keywords are “School x Life x Story RPG.” Of course, it’ll be free to play with optional purchases.
The story places the player in the role of a teacher leading students belonging to various clubs to investigate incidents within the city. If the formula sounds familiar, it’s likely because it is.
You can check out a trailer of Blue Archive below and a key artwork at the bottom of the post.
The publisher will host a closed beta with slots for 1,000 players on Android with applications ending on July 31.
At the moment, there is no information about a western release, but Yostar normally localizes its games in English, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this comes to North America and Europe at some point as well.
