Crunchyroll Games has announced the English launch of mobile anime RPG Princess Connect! Re: Dive, and it is set to be a great time!
Done in collaboration with Cygames (the game developer behind Granblue Fantasy) and Funplex, (who released the world’s first social media game for mobile devices) Princess Connect! Re: Dive was released in 2018 in Japan. A real-time action role-play game, players group up in parties of up to five to take on the game’s various modes as well as other player groups. It received praise for its fun gameplay, stunning in-game animations created by iconic anime studios, and talented voice work coming from talented actors including M•A•O (Iris in Fire Force, Shion in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), Miku Ito (Kokoro Tsurumaki in BanG Dream!, Miku Nakano in Quintessential Quintuplets), and Rika Tachibana (Reiko Arisugawa in Shomin Sample, Lucia in Street Fighter V, and Momoko Futo in Joshi Kausei).
The game quickly became a favorite in Japan, reaching the #1 spot on the app store. It was later released in China by Bilibili in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese. The popular game went on to also receive Korean and Thai translations.
Princess Connect! Re: Dive also went on to be adapted into an anime series by CygamesPictures.

There he encounters a guide who has sworn to care for him—Kokkoro, a lovely swordswoman who’s always feeling peckish—Pecorine, and a cat-eared sorceress with a prickly attitude—Karyl. Led by fate, these four come together to form the “Gourmet Guild.” And so their adventure begins…Crunchyroll
