Rudel announced that it is developing Blue Lock Project: World Champion, a mobile game that is based on the TV anime Blue Lock.
The game is described as a “new sense soccer training simulation game” in which players train the striker, form the strongest team, and engage in fierce battles with rivals. It will also include content that allows players to relive the original story of the anime and fully enjoy the worldview of Blue Lock. The mobile game is set to release this winter and more information will be unveiled later on.
Pre-registration for the game also opens now. Interested players can pre-register by following the official Twitter, but the pre-registration rewards are yet to be revealed.
