In its press release, KLab described “hybrid casual game” as a model that combines the simplicity of casual games and the long-term playability of online games. The game will also generate profits from both microtransactions and advertisements.

KLab did not specify the platforms for the new game. However, it placed its press release on PRTimes under the “Smartphone Game” category. Therefore, this new title will appear on mobile devices.

KLab has previously released a Bleach live service game, and it is still ongoing as of May 2024. Bleach: Brave Souls originally came out for Android and iOS mobile devices. The company gradually added PC (Steam) and PlayStation 4 to its platform lineup. Brave Souls had recorded over 70 million downloads as of November 2022; that number has since been updated to 90 million in late April 2024.

The new Bleach hybrid casual game will be available worldwide on mobile devices.
