If there’s one thing that’s synonymous with popular JRPGs, its either a stats game where you’re fighting off crowds of baddies, or it’s a dating simulator. Funnily enough this particular game is a thirsty Disney title which we wouldn’t have expected them to endorse but hey, it’s 2021 so anything can happen right?
Until recently, the game had not announced that it would be available in any other language than Japanese. Then we got word, it’s coming in English and will be available next year to play on Android and iOS. Aniplex of America announced the critically acclaimed mobile JRPG, “Disney Twisted-Wonderland,” will be coming to the US and Canada on January 20, 2022.
Aniplex of America also revealed that pre-registration for “Twisted-Wonderland” will begin December 21, 2021 for iOS and Android, giving fans a chance to earn useful in-game items by reaching pre-registration milestones.
“Disney Twisted-Wonderland” features an original story and characters, inspired by classic Disney villains, in the visual and storytelling style of renowned anime and manga artist, Yana Toboso, best known for the wildly successful “Black Butler” series.
In “Disney Twisted-Wonderland,” players are transported to Night Raven College, an academy built for the training of mages, where they will meet an eclectic cast of students inspired by notorious Disney villains. This highly anticipated mobile game features an opening animation by TROYCA (“Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files,” “Rail Zeppelin,” “Grace note,” “Aldnoah.Zero“) and voice acting talent including Natsuki Hanae (“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba,” “Tokyo Ghoul“), Koki Uchiyama (“Haikyu!!,” “Fate/Zero“), and Atsushi Tamaru (“The Irregular at Magic High School,” “The Asterisk War“). “Disney Twisted-Wonderland” promises to bring a unique gaming experience to anime, manga, and Disney fans alike.
“As we welcome players in the U.S. and Canada to the world of Twisted-Wonderland with the launch of the mobile game’s English version, we are truly humbled to be given stewardship of this new adventure, joining the beloved and imaginative stories Disney has cultivated for so long,” says Yusuke Toyama producer of Aniplex, Inc. “We are thrilled to expand our audience to new and returning Disney fans while crafting a wholly original story, inspired by some of the most iconic Disney villains.”
“Continuing our fan-first approach to demonstrate timeless stories in unprecedented ways, this unique game shows how stories from any part of the world can resonate with fans everywhere,” says Luigi Priore, VP, Disney and Pixar Games. “We hope players are as excited as we are to experience this incredibly distinctive anime universe.”
