There is currently no information about the Ghost in the Shell event that’ll be in Girls’ Frontline. More information on it will appear on the official social media account for the game closer to launch. According to the press release, both of the series focus on action in a cyber-futuristic setting, which gives both properties a lot of synergy. We can only speculate on what the event will entail. But it may have time-limited characters, such as protagonist Motoko Kusanagi, and related items.

Ghost in the Shell is a cyberpunk media franchise that first started in 1989 with the manga’s serialization. It has been a influential piece of work even in the Western world. The Wachowskis used some concepts from it in The Matrix, and James Cameron has cited it as a source of inspiration for Avatar.

As mentioned earlier, it takes place in a cyberpunk world. It follows Section 9 Chief Daisuke Aramaki and Major Motoko Kusanagi as they investigate a cyber-criminal that can hack humans with cyberbrains. The Major herself has a cyberbrain, as an accident in her childhood forced her to use a full-body prosthesis. As Girls’ Frontline also features female android characters as its protagonists, the two works do have some similarities in setting.

Girls’ Frontline is readily available on mobile devices. More information on the Ghost in the Shell event in Girls’ Frontline will come out later.
