Back in July, we first posted that Pearl Abyss invested in VIC Game Studios, a Korean startup which is developing the mysterious Project B. We now know that the game is Black Clover Mobile, based on the popular anime and manga series by Yūki Tabata. VIC Game Studios actually has experience working with anime content before, as it was founded by Jae-Young Choi, the development lead for Netmarble’s hit mobile RPG, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross.
From what we have seen, Black Clover Mobile will launch in Japan first under Pearl Abyss Japan (not confirmed), but it does make sense. VIC Game Studios also confirmed a global version is in the works scheduled for a 2022 launch and the English logo for the game is ready. Pearl Abyss, developer of Black Desert, has been investing in various companies in 2021, and we should be seeing some results starting in 2022. Stay tuned!
