Tokyo, Japan and San Francisco, California – Oct. 8, 2015 – Today, gumi Inc. and developer Fuji&gumi Games are excited to introduce to the world Zero and a squad of brand new “Killer Princes” in the strategy RPG Phantom of the Kill. Male manifestations of the “Killer Princesses” that already battle demons in the phantom universe, these heroes are one part of a massive wave of brand new features to come to the international release of hotly anticipated strategy RPG, Phantom of the Kill. It will launch later this year.

Teased at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, these new experiences turn the world of Phantom of the Kill on its head, focusing on the darker apocalyptic regions seen in later portions of the game currently playable in Japan. With new heroes come new missions, new stories, and new optimizations, including Facebook integration to easily save file transfers, and a World Selection feature that allows players to play exactly what they want.

“When we developed Phantom of the Kill, we created it with tightly focused gameplay, beautiful art, and an epic sweeping story in mind,” said Jun Imaizumi, Executive Producer of Phantom of the Kill. “We know players in the West have already been finding ways to experience the game, so when we confirmed it for a Western launch, we wanted to add an extra layer of gameplay, story, and art.”

Phantom of the Kill is playable from Oct. 8-11 at New York Comic Con in gumi’s booth #354 at the Javits Center. NYCC attendees will have the chance to engage directly with developers of Phantom of the Kill and offer their feedback directly to the team by visiting gumi’s booth.

Here are the new screenshots:

Phantom of the Kill is a turn-based strategy game revolving around a group of assassins on a quest to recover their lost memories in a dangerous fantasy world. In this epic journey, magic and technology collide with demons and otherworldly beings. With world-class talent like Mamoru Oshii (director of “Ghost in the Shell”) as Editorial Supervisor, Phantom of the Kill features intuitive “one thumb” controls, a huge array of character classes and weapons, beautiful graphics, and formidable challenges. Phantom of the Kill is a dazzling strategy RPG for players around the world that has already achieved over 2,500,000 downloads and ranked #1 in the Google Play Store in Japan.

Wildly popular in its native Japan, Phantom of the Kill will be launching in the West later this year for iOS and Android devices.
