Anime video game developer and publisher, Bandai Namco, Monday announced TOKYO GHOUL:re CALL to EXIST, the first video game based off the popular dark fantasy manga series to come to the West.
TOKYO GHOUL:re CALL to EXIST will unite characters from across the franchise, including TOKYO GHOUL, TOKYO GHOUL √A, and TOKYO GHOUL:re in the fight for survival as either a Ghoul or Investigator. Ghoul and Investigator character types each possess their own unique abilities and weapons to master, including Kagune – a Ghoul’s predatory organ that is used as a weapon - or Quinque – an Investigator’s weapon created from the vanquished body of a fallen Ghoul. Players can choose their sides and challenge friends to see who will reign supreme in gruesome battles to the death.
“In bringing a TOKYO GHOUL game to the West, it was important to stay true to the source material and feature popular characters, the manga’s worldview, and the unique atmosphere drawn from across the franchise,” said Abelina Villegas, Associate Brand Manager at Bandai Namco. “TOKYO GHOUL:re CALL to EXIST encapsulates the spirit of the popular dark fantasy manga franchise presented through ghastly graphics and fast paced gameplay we know fans will love.”
The company says TOKYO GHOUL:re CALL to EXIST will feature fast-paced online co-op play in which the goal is to survive. Players can enter the war between Ghouls and Investigators on either side when the game comes to the Americas on PlayStation4 computer entertainment system and PCs via STEAM.
The game is currently rated "RP - Rating Pending" by the ESRB.
