While Good Smile Company is more well-known for its nendoroid figurines worldwide, the Japanese company has actualy dabbled into games for some years now. Teaming up with domestic developer G2 Studios (not related to the Esports team), they are now working on Black★Rock Shooter FRAGMENT, a mobile RPG based on the Black★Rock Shooter action fantasy franchise. Yesterday, we got a first look at the actual gameplay!
As seen via the video, the genre is more akin to tower defense similar to Arknights, with players able to move units around to effectively destroy enemy waves. There is this blue area known as “Kill Zone,” where characters are able to deal more damage to enemies within the area. Black★Rock Shooter FRAGMENT is scheduled to launch in Japan this coming autumn, with an English version scheduled for 2023. Stay tuned!
