Black Clover Phantom Knights is a new RPG for mobile based on the manga Black Clover. It is currently available for pre-registration on both Google Play and the App Store with the release date expected to be early 2020. The App Store listing of the game suggests it might launch on January 30th, but this hasn’t been confirmed by the developer yet. In any case, check out its trailer below:

Black Clover Phantom Knights will see you assembling a party of familiar characters from the manga, so of course Asta, Noelle, and Yami will all be there. The game also introduces some new characters as well.

Since this is going to be a free-to-play title, most of these characters will probably be locked behind a gacha system, and there’ll be different resources that you must obtain in order to level them up. Judging from the available photos, the combat appears to follow the traditional formula where you can arrange your team members to create the optimal formation.

Needless to say, each character has a set of flashy attacks at his/her disposal, and autoplay is also a thing here for those who want to do other things while playing at the same time.

Given that Black Cover the manga is relatively young, this is the first time it has got a mobile game spinoff. That said, the protagonist Asta has made an appearance as a playable character in Bandai Namco’s fighting game Jump Force before.
