One of the top anime destinations is stepping into a new world with the launch of the first Crunchyroll Game, Memoria Freese, co-produced with Sumitomo and GREE in Japan. Alternately titled DanMemo, the game arrives just as fans are getting hyped for the recently announced second season of DanMachi — or Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? The title should find a ready audience, as 90 percent of Crunchyroll users are self-identified gamers.
Based off of a light novel of the same name written by Fujino Omori and illustrated by Suzuhito Yasuda, Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is set in the world of Orario, where adventurers band together and look for treasures in an underground labyrinth known as Dungeon. However, for Bell Cranel, fame and riches are secondary to what he wants to find the most: girls. He soon finds out though, that anything can happen in Dungeon, and winds up being the damsel in distress instead!
In the game, players can explore the city of Orario, interact with characters, and build the best team to help fight their way through the monster-riddled Dungeon. The North American release of Memoria Freese will feature the voice talents of Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Inori Minase, Saori Ōnishi, as well as many others, and all dialogue of the game is voiced just like the Japanese version, with English subtitles provided.
GREE has designed, developed, and will maintain both the game and copyright control, while Ellation and the Sumitomo Corporation will handle the distribution, localization, and marketing of the game under Ellation’s Crunchyroll Games brand.
