The release of Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade, the mobile game based on Jujutsu Kaisen, will be delayed until Spring 2023. Its original Japanese release date was supposed to fall time within 2022. However, Sumzap updated people by discussing some of the content it is working on, including sharing as a second trailer. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
According to Sumzap’s official Twitter account, the reason behind the delay is to improve the overall quality of the game. Sumzap reassured potential players that the development is going smoothly. In the second trailer, you can see a bit more of what the gameplay is like. More specifically, it focused on the special moves of the characters, as well as how key scenes from the anime will look in the mobile game.
You can check out the second trailer here:
In the video, we can see characters like Fushiguro, Panda, and Inumaki using their signature cursed techniques. At the end, there is also a combination move between Yuji and Todo.
As a reminder, Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will mostly follow the plot of the show and manga, but it will likely have its own story as well. So far, we know of three original characters will be in the game.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a manga and anime series that was wildly popular when the anime originally aired in 2020. The manga is one of the best-selling manga series of all time, with over 70 million copies as of August 2022. The movie based on the prequel, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, made over 5.8 billion yen during its theatrical run.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will come out for mobile devices in Japan in Spring 2023.
