Imageepoch has announced at Tokyo conference today that a popular anime, Black Rock, will be getting its own PSP game.

The game will follow the adventures of the Black Rock Shooter, a glowing-eyed girl equipped with a gun that can fire 20 rounds per second. It’s set in the year 2051, 19 years after war broke out with invading aliens.

Mankind’s got its back against the wall with only 12 people surviving, the remaining humans fighting against the seven apostles and countless mechs.

Kazuya Niinou will be directing the game, with animation work being done by UFOTABLE.

The anime, which released earlier in the year, was made by Ordet, an Osaka-based studio.

The game will release next spring in Japan for PSP and will cost ¥6,279. A limited edition will cost ¥10,479, and contain a special visual box containing the following:

  • Artwork
  • A Black Rock Shooter white Figma figurine
  • An artbook
  • A soundtrack

A teaser site for the game is live but actual content will only come on November 29.

Watch the the first trailer below:

Thanks, Kotaku.

    BRS is just a concept based on Hatsune Miku spun out into an entire new franchise.

    Its very strange seeing a game based around what was originally just some drawings on a pixiv account.
