A teaser website for the new Bungo Stray Dogs smartphone game was launched on Wednesday. The action RPG will be titled Bungo Stray Dogs Mayoi Inu Kaikitan, and will be available on both iOS and Android. This will be the franchise’s first mobile game, and will feature all-new scenarios and character side stories.
The game will be free to play, but will include in-game purchases. Ambition is the company developing it. Bungo Stray Dogs got its first season in April 2016, with the second season later that year in October. The subbed version is available for streaming on Crunchyroll, with an upcoming dub release planned by Funimation.
Here is a synopsis of Bungo Stray Dogs:
“For weeks, Atsushi Nakajima’s orphanage has been plagued by a mystical tiger that only he seems to be aware of. Suspected to be behind the strange incidents, the 18-year-old is abruptly kicked out of the orphanage and left hungry, homeless, and wandering through the city.
While starving on a riverbank, Atsushi saves a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical suicide enthusiast and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the boy. Together with Dazai’s partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but its resolution leaves Atsushi in a tight spot. As various odd events take place, Atsushi is coerced into joining their firm of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases the police cannot handle, alongside his numerous enigmatic co-workers.” (MAL Rewrite)
