Yu Yu Hakusho’s (幽☆遊☆白書) latest mobile project by KLab had gone silent after a brief announcement in March 2017. Today, the wait is finally over. The title is revealed to be Yu Yu Hakusho: 100% Maji Battle (幽☆遊☆白書 100%本気バトル), whose gameplay will involve intense battles and classic scenes from the anime.
The developer has disclosed very little so far, but it will soon make everything clear in Jump Festa 2018 (16th December – 17th December), where an individual photo-taking corner for 100% Maji Battle will be set up. The game even has a special site for its grand appearance at the festival, while the official site will be launched on 16th December to share voice samples and trailers.
▍About Yu Yu Hakusho
The manga follows Yusuke Urameshi, a 14 year old rebel who dies after being hit by a car while trying to save a kid. The underworld has never foreseen Yusuke’s sudden death at all, and as a result there is no place to accommodate his spirit. This grants him a chance to return to his body. After that, Yusuke becomes an underworld detective and investigates supernatural phenomenons that occur in the human world.
The series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi (冨樫 義博) ran on Weekly Shonen Jump between 1990 and 1994. The TV anime adaption aired for two years starting 1992. A 25th anniversary campaign is now being held for the show.
