Crunchyroll Games is announcing a worldwide collaboration between Crunchyroll-Hime, Crunchyroll’s beloved anime mascot, and “Grand Summoners”, the real-time RPG with rich gameplay, strategic co-op battles, and epic anime storylines.
This in-game event, starting August 28th, will feature Crunchyroll-Hime as an exclusive, playable character alongside Yuzu, her mortal black cat companion. Crunchyroll-Hime will be summonable in Kitsune Herofest Adventure alongside other legendary Grand Summoners heroes. Crunchyroll-Hime will also have themed Equips available in Equip Summons. Crunchyroll-Hime will be the first Fire-type healer-attacker combo in the game and has the unique ability to revive herself once per battle.
Crunchyroll-Hime is “Grand Summoners” first global-exclusive character, created with hand-drawn animation that was then pixelated to create her unique in-game look. Crunchyroll-Hime’s mortal cat companion, Yuzu, also fights alongside her with 1:1 animation, copying every move she makes. Fans will also receive free Crunchyroll-Hime themed stickers, in-game currency, and more just from logging in during the Crunchyroll-Hime event.
Grand Summoners will be celebrating Crunchyroll-Hime’s arrival with two login bonuses featuring free rare items and in-game currency. Players logging in during Crunchyroll Expo will be treated to surprise gifts in addition to Hime’s chat-sticker filled login bonus.
Voice actress Rian Tachibana will voice Crunchyroll Hime during the collaboration. Tachibana’s previous credits include “Patlabor,” “Persona 4: The Golden,” and “Selia” in “Grand Summoners” among many others.
The Crunchyroll Hime in game event will run from August 28th to October 31st.
