Square Enix has revealed the game behind its recent teaser site, that hinted at a new ‘Ranobe-Style’ RPG, a term commonly used to describe episodic book and anime series, or ‘Light Novel,’ as it is typically translated. The game in question is School Girl Strikers for iOS, and its first details have now been revealed.
UPDATE: Gematsu reports that School Girl Strikers is coming to iOS 7 devices and higher in Japan this Summer, and will be a free-to-play title with microtransactions.
Plot details are thin, but the big cast is confirmed to include Ayaka Asai, Yu Asakawa, Kaori Ishihara, Mariya Ise.
We’ll post more details as they come.
It follows a pledge from Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda that the company will focus on core gamers and hard JRPG fans once more.
The site’s URL simply reads ‘team043,’ and includes both today’s date and a cast list. Although it’s April Fools Day, there’s really no evident joke on the page, so we’re treating this as real for now.
We’ve also got absolutely no idea what it could be. Any guesses?
