Nexon’s new free-to-play mobile RPG, KonoSuba: Fantastic Days, is available now from the App Store and Google Play. If you’re curious about the gameplay, KonoSuba: Fantastic Days sees you explore KonoSuba’s parallel world through side-scrolling action with real-time and turn-based combat mechanics.
You may recognise the name KonoSuba, and with good reason, as the new RPG takes inspiration from Crunchy Roll’s anime series of the same name. Initially, KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World began as a web novel in 2012, only to become a light novel series the following year – with Kadokawa Shoten serving as its publisher – before progressing onto manga, anime, and film.
KonoSuba: Fantastic Days is a must-play for all fans out there, especially since you play as some of your favourite anime heroes, like Kazuma Sato, Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness. The original Japanese voice actors also return, including Jun Fukushima, Sora Amamiya, Rie Takahashi, and Ai Kayano. Oh, and there are new faces as well, to go with the all-new storyline.
When it comes to characters, you begin with popular KonoSuba characters, but you can collect more, helping you to create the ultimate party to face the Devil King’s army. If you are curious about your new teammates, story and character missions provide more details.
Oh, and to celebrate the game’s launch, Nexon is hosting an online showcase on August 19. Head over to the Nexon Mobile Games’ YouTube channel on August 19 at 11:00 PDT/19:00 BST to be treated to an exciting event, hosted by Jackie Jing and Malik Forte, with appearances from popular anime personalities and content creators, CDawgVA, Gigguk, and The Anime Man.
