imageNamco Bandai picked up a license to develop a game based on Blue Exorcist. Rin, the teenage son of the devil and a human, is the lead character of the anime/manga series.

 

No details about the game have been announced other than the system, PSP. Blue Exorcist’s (temporary title) genre is the intersecting bonds between two people exorcist adventure.

 

A teaser site is online with a full reveal slated for August.

    i hope it’s not a quick cash-in

      I really think it it’s a quick cash-in game, because the original manga doesn’t even have enough material for a anime series (just 6 volumes), and they made one. Now they’re making a game too…

  • karasuKumo

    It would make a great game if done right. If it’s a MH clone or something else that we’ve seen a million times already it’ll be a shame.

    Probably same cash-in game as with Star Driver, or something similar, the anime is not even halfway through yet and the manga is too short for a game, then again it’s not like the setting is not easy to exploit~

      Where’s the love for Yukio :’(
      Heheh.

      • Firekitty

        Well, if it’s a *BL* Exorcist game, I’d assume the ‘love for Yukio’ would be with Rin XD

            There’s always the super-secret threesome ending! Everyone wins!

            haha, I would so play to get that ending too! :D

  • Lordphantomhive

    I love Blue Exorcist, but too bad this might be a quick cash-in.

  • Darkrise

    Just like Soul Eater, KHR, Fairy Tail, and so many other recent anime for the past two years are being profited off on some incredibly flawed game… It’s like the equivalent of movie game adaptions: They’re terrible.

      That’s true, some mangaka have promising work that could go to great heights.
      What really screws things up is that they’re not patient!
      Have they ever considered some thing like “Well maybe we should let the series EXPAND a little, that way we can utilize things from it; Story, combat, etc.”!
      The game would be a little boost, it’s not that the series isn’t stable, it’s because isn’t large enough to be used. I appreciate and agree with you on the matter.

      Hitman Reborn Kindan no Yami no Delta and the 2 Battle Arena games were quite good, but can’t say the same for Fairy Tail and Soul Eater. Soul Eater Battle Resonance. Oh god.

    Can’t get myself hyped for this. I can’t think of an manga / anime adaptation game that’s been at the level of even “subpar” lately. They’ve mostly all stunk.

    But the manga / anime is great though. Never knew about the series until I started watching the anime, and I liked it so much I went and got the manga series. One of the few anime adaptations recently that made me go out and get the manga volumes, the other recent ones being Claymore and Soul Eater.

  • darkfox1

    OMG This is my new favorite anime I love it so much. And the opening by UVERworld is just awesome too. But do not yet know about how I feel about a PSP game for it. For those who do not read/watch Ao No¬†Exorcist I recommend you do it’s awesome!!!!¬†
