What is Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade?

Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade is a free-to-play game planned for iOS and Android that takes place in the manga universe of Gege Akutami, as its name suggests. In broad outline, this project is not really surprising, since it has been several years since the titles of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine have been entitled to video game adaptations. More recently, these adaptations are often made in mobile format, with a free-to-play economic model called gacha, that is to say with a lottery system that allows you to randomly retrieve characters. Thus, it is very likely that this Phantom Parade follow this pattern. Proof that the project promises to be particularly ambitious, the latter offered an animated introduction which was produced no more and no less than by Mappa, the studio behind the anime. Jujutsu Kaisen.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade promises to be a free-to-play mobile game that takes the form of a role-playing game with turn-based combat. From what we could see from the first gameplay video, we control a group of several characters (four at the most?) who face plagues. To overcome them, they have several skills, some of which seem to consume the points of a gauge which must surely represent the occult energy of the fighters. Once all the actions have been selected, the characters attack with quite neat and dynamic animations with many effects which promise great things for the release of the game. Beyond these elements that we could see in a short sequence, we don’t know more about the gameplay of Phantom Parade.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade is now scheduled for Spring 2023, but this primarily concerns Japan and not the rest of the world, including France. By consulting the game’s Twitter account (which already has almost 300,000 subscribers, which testifies to the expectation around the project), we notice that the title has recently and discreetly been postponed since it was scheduled to start in 2022. Too bad so for those who thought they could play it this year, but you’ll have to be a little more patient. However, it is likely that the release date has also been pushed back to coincide with the release of anime season 2 which is also scheduled for 2023.

When the game will be officially released in France, Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade can be downloaded directly from the Android and iOS stores, i.e. the Google Play Store and the App Store. In the event that the title is released first in Japan, then you will have to wait before you can get your hands on it. But for the most impatient, it will always be possible to create an account on the Japanese App Store, for example, to access it in advance. It is then up to you to see if you will have the courage to play the title in Japanese, taking the risk of not understanding everything that is said.

As can be seen in the project’s animated introduction, it looks like Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will feature an original story set in the work of Gege Akutami. Indeed, we can observe characters never seen before, as you can also see on the image opposite. Thus, the young man we see is a certain Kaito Yuki who is a first-year student at Fukuoka Jujutsu High, which seems to be a new school of exorcists never seen before either in the manga or in the anime. . Within the same academy, we find Saki Rindo who seems to be one of his classmates. Finally, the man in the all-black eye patch is none other than Kensuke Nagino, the principal of Fukuoka Jujutsu High. If this new school of exorcists seems to play an important role in this unprecedented adventure, we do not yet know the details of the plot of this Phantom Parade.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade is made by a studio called Sumzap which has a few mobile games to its name. In the past, the company has already had its hands on licenses from anime and manga, like KonoSuba: Fantastic Days! which was released both in Japan and around the world. Beyond that, the studio has also dabbled in the mobile card game genre with Sengoku Enbu -KIZNA- which still seems to be online. If we take the liberty of specifying this, it is that this is not necessarily the case for other projects such as D_CIDE TRAUMEREI, a game resulting from a cross-media project which will close its doors on October 28, while a certain London Labyrinth saw its servers cut last March. As for editing, TOHO takes care of that itself.. As a reminder, TOHO is one of the largest Japanese cinema production houses to which we owe both Godzilla and films by director Akira Kurosawa and which has entered the world of video games with its TOHO branch.
