Gumi are bringing their strategy RPG, Phantom of the Kill, to North America. The game, which is presently available on iOS and Android devices in Japan, will make its debut at this year’s Anime Expo with a playable demo.


Phantom of the Kill is a turn-based strategy game revolving around a group of assassins that are attempting to recover their lost memories. The game includes a large range of character classes and weapons, and is among the top-grossing Android titles in Japan.


Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii is serving as an Editorial Supervisor for Phantom of the Kill’s opening movie. The game does not have a release date in North America yet, but we’ll have more info on this front in the future.
