US-based company Crunchyroll has just announced Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battle, a new game for mobile based on the anime Mob Psycho 100. According to the announcement, the game will become available first at the Anime Expo 2019, and it will be officially released later this fall.

Mob Psycho 100
Mob Psycho 100 is a very popular anime series

For those who don’t know, Mob Psycho 100 is an anime made by the same studio that is responsible for One Punch Man season 1. The story follows Shigeo Kageyama, a seemingly normal middle school student nicknamed “Mob” for his inconspicuousness. Secretly, however, he possesses immense psychic power yet struggles to control it and as a result has to live under emotional chains at all times. Mob just wants to live a normal life, yet troubles keep coming to him due to his powers. This anime was one of the most popular ones of 2017, and now its second season, Mob Psycho 100 II, is seeking to take the same spot for this year as well.

Last week, Crunchyroll also revealed that it’ll continue the story of Mob Psycho 100 in a new original video animation (OVA) titled Mob Psycho 100 II: The First Spirits and Such Company Trip - A Journey that Mends the Heart and Heals the Soul (Yes, that whole mouthful of words is just one name), which is set to premiere at Crunchyroll Expo on September 1. For those who could not make it to that expo, the OVA will be released publicly a few weeks later, on September 25. The plot of this OVA sees Mob and co. investigating an inn to uncover the truth behind some peculiar rumors. During that mission, however, some of them end up getting transported to a strange parallel world.
