Kuroko’s Got Style But This Ain’t About Basketball

By Eugene . January 18, 2014 . 12:30pm


Please forgive us since we, too, were confused when this landed in our laps. Kuroko Style has absolutely nothing to do with the far more well-known basketball and hot men frenzy that is Kuroko’s Basketball, despite sharing its first name.



It seems that this is a side-scrolling adventure game for the Nintendo 3DS eShop with various costumes… which don’t seem to have any discernable effect. Sure, there’s a dragon’s head, pumpkin head and fox head on display for your completely black or “kuro ko” (Black child, literally, and where the title comes from) to don and use, but what they do is unknown. Hell, the game even tells us you can “dress up your character any way you like”. So…. uhm… why?

We’ll let you know when we figure the mystery out ourselves. Kuroko Style will be out spring 2014 on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan’s eShop.

    Why’d i click on this article still expecting to see Kuroko (Kuroko no basket)

    • I was expecting a spin-off game at least. lmao

      • Highasthesky

        Same here. The fact i saw that screenshot and went “yea,this is about kuroko no basket” reflects poorly on my intellect =(

    • Lumi

      Was expecting a visual novel style (thinly veiled BL) game. Am disappoint.

  • ZnTxn

    “What a weird team mascot for a Kuroko no Basket game”
    That’s what I thought before clicking the article.

  • Internet is Crash

    I can’t believe I got misdirected by the article name

    • melvin2898

      Misdirection? That reference.

  • So, am I the only one who didn’t fell for the whole “Name’s the same, so it must be related” bit? Because it was pretty obvious to me upon the preview quote and image. Doesn’t help that Eugene does a lot of these “Red Herring” puns.
