Today Square Enix released a new and extensive video of Gate of Nightmares, a new mobile JRPG that carries the name of Hiro Hiro Mashima.
The game was initially announced back in April for iOS and Android, and if you’re not familiar with Mashima-sensei’s creations, he’s the mangaka behind Fairy Tail and Edens Zero. For this game, he designed the characters and created the world.
The scenario is written by Jin Fujisawa, who worked on Dragon Quest VIII, IX, and X, while the music is by Yasuharu Takanashi, who worked on many anime like Fairy Tail, Log Horizon, and Naruto.
You can watch the video below, introducing the characters and the gameplay.
Square Enix is also recruiting users for a beta test in Japan, which will be hosted between July 1 and July 12.
At the moment, Gate of Nightmares has been announced only for Japan and does not have a release date. Square Enix has made no mention of the possibility of a western release, but it has been bringing many of its mobile games to North America and Europe as of late, so I wouldn’t exclude to see this one in English as well, at some point. We’ll have to wait and see.
