With this game, you know that ArcSys won’t be losing their way.
A teaser trailer for a new Kill la Kill video game aired during the broadcast of today’s episode of DARLING in the FRANXX. Shortly thereafter, an official website opened its doors that confirms the basic details, while showing off a key visual. We break the details down below.
The 30-second promo uses footage from the Kill la Kill anime, and confirms that the project is in the works.
The visual features Satsuki Kiryuin standing tall with the Elite four. The group is set against a crimson background.
Kill la Kill: The Game is slated for a 2019 release. The title is a battle action game by APlus, which is being published by Arc System Works. As of press time, no further details have been revealed, aside from a 2019 release window. More information will be announced at Anime Expo 2018, which runs from July 5 – 8.
Kill la Kill is an original anime series from Trigger, which first aired in the Fall 2013 broadcast season. The show was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt), with Sushio providing character designs. Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann, Re: Cutie Honey) was in charge of series composition for the work.
Aniplex of America currently holds the rights to the title, and describes it as:
Honnouji Academy – where the school is ruled by students clad in special outfits called Goku Uniforms. Deriding the student body as “pigs in human clothing,” Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin, along with her loyal underlings, the Elite Four, has the academy under their absolute control.
One day, a vagrant schoolgirl named Ryuko Matoi appears and tries to get Satsuki, who recognizes her Scissor Blade, to talk. Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!
