Evangelion Battlefields will finally see its debut in April 2020. This “cinematic battle action” mobile game based on the Neon Genesis Evangelion series was delayed due to concerns regarding COVID-19. It was originally scheduled to release on Android and Apple iOS devices on March 26, 2020. However, a new distribution date has been selected and fans will finally be able to experience this new title on April 2, 2020. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
Evangelion Battlefields is a 3D, real-time action game that gives fans the opportunity to participate in Eva versus Eva combat. Right now, a pre-registration campaign is currently on-going to celebrate the upcoming release of the mobile game. As an apology to those looking forward to it, the original pre-registration awards have been increased significantly. Twenty-two characters will be in Evangelion Battlefields.
Additionally, fans can get their hands on special Evangelion Battlefield controllers. Alongside these controllers, figurines of popular Evangelion characters like Asuka, Shinji, and Rei were also released to commemorate the launch of the mobile app. Fans can already purchase both the controllers and figurines. Both of these items can be used in tandem when playing Evangelion Battlefields, so if you are looking for the complete experience, you will want to get your hands on everything.
In an interesting turn of events, the Neon Genesis Evangelion series has recently collaborated with car manufacturer Honda. This collaboration comes just a few months before the screening of Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0, or Shin Evangelion.
Evangelion Battlefields release on Android and Apple iOS devices in Japan on April 2, 2020.
