Crunchyroll Announces Mobile Game Publishing Deal

Crunchyroll Announces Mobile Game Publishing Deal 1

localize anime mobile games, starting with Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? MEMORIA FREESE.

The aforementioned title is created by GREE, a large game creator with headquarters in Japan. Said game is massively popular in Japan, with over three million downloads since its release in June. DanMemo, as it’s called, due to the Japanese title of the anime, is a spin off of popular anime Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, starring characters from the show and is fully voice acted by the original cast.

DanMemo‘s gameplay consists of RPG battles with characters to recieve through random draws or “gacha” rolls, where the game bestows random characters to you through lottery. Certain numbers of draws are allowed per day or week, with more draws purchasable with real money. Many of these games draw in their funds this way, and DanMemo seems to be the same, free to play but with microtransactions for more loot and longer play sessions.

It’s unknown how many more mobile games Crunchyroll will publish, or how well this game will go over with Americans. DanMachi was popular with anime fans, but it wasn’t a mainstream success. Gacha games are extremely popular these days, with games such as Granblue Fantasy and Fate/Grand Order making millions daily, so DanMemo is seemingly set up for at least a small amount of success so long as it brings something relatively new to the table. Memoria Freese will launch outside of Japan sometime in 2018.
