Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War gameplay details revealed

Today, GameSamba and Funimation® Entertainment are revealing more details about the upcoming “Tokyo Ghoul” game, now titled “Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War”.

 

The game will be available this winter for Android and Apple devices, and it will feature three gameplay modes for players to pick from.

 

The first is the single player quest/story mode, which will take players on an episodic journey where they’ll face an onslaught of human or ghoul foes in real-time action-RPG combat. Players will be able to control a party of characters, and unleash powerful special skills.

 

“Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War” will also feature a variety of multiplayer modes. The first is a traditional player vs player (PvP) arena, where players can compete against one another in fights, to see who has the stronger team. The other multiplayer mode is an experience inspired by MOBA gameplay, and players will participate in 1v1, 3v3, or 5v5 matches against other players as they attempt to take out the enemy team.

 

Players interested in signing up for future announcements or beta opportunities for “Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War” can do so at the official site, tokyoghoul.gamesamba.com. The game will also be playable at GameSamba’s booth (6016) at PAX West, along with their upcoming puzzle RPG, “18: Dream World.”

 

Seasons 1 & 2 of the “Tokyo Ghoul” anime series can be seen on Funimation’s next generation streaming service FunimationNow, which is available on smartphones, tablets, TVs and gaming consoles.

Summary
In a world where dirty jokes don’t exist, where the mere utterance of a ***** word will thrust you into jail, a hero must rise up as a symbol for all things lewd and rude. The mysterious Blue Snow, proudly wearing panties on her face and armed with naughty images and a foul mouth, will bring the art of dirty jokes back! With her erotic terrorist group, SOX, she will press against the stiff authority of the oppressive Decency Squad and step on their hard and overbearing rules. Tanukichi Okuma is the son of an imprisoned ero-terrorist. Rather than following in his father’s footsteps, he plans to stay on the track of morality and wholesomeness. Just like his dream girl, Anna Nishikinomiya, he attends Japan’s most moral school. But after an encounter with Blue Snow, his virtuous plans are ****** and he finds himself entangled with SOX. Will the pursuit of smut tarnish what hope he has with the pure Anna, or will he *** around, stimulated by the panty wearing deviant and her filthy mouth?
