This year’s 28th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen manga is inspiring an RPG titled Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade for iOS and Android devices from developer Sumzap. The game will be free with optional in-app purchases.
Shueisha has yet to reveal a release window for the game. The magazine revealed images of the characters of Yūji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, Satoru Gojō, and Kento Nanami. Shueisha said that more characters will appear in the game as well. The information about the countries in which the game will be released is not out yet.
Akutami launched the manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. Shueisha published volume 16 of the manga’s compiled book on June 4. The manga has more than 50 million copies in circulation.
The manga will be on hiatus from Weekly Shonen Jump Issue 29 on June 21 due to Akutami’s poor health. The magazine will announce when the manga will return at a later date, once Akutami has sufficiently recovered.
Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its Jump Start initiative. When Viz switched to its new Shonen Jump model in December 2018, the company began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on her MANGA Plus website.
The Jujutsu Kaisen anime premiered last October and ran for 24 episodes. Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (Jujutsu Kaisen 0 the Movie), a new anime film for the franchise, will be released this winter. The film is based on the prequel to Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Kōtō Senmon Gakkō (Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School) manga.
