Ursula, Flotsam, and Jetsam get "twisted" by Black Butler creator
Why do good girls like bad guys? It's a mystery, but the upcoming Aniplex/Disney game Twisted Wonderland is banking on the attraction — especially with the addition of a trio of Little Mermaid villains.
The game, which features character designs by Black Butler creator Yana Toboso, reimagines classic Disney baddies as hot anime guys in a university. Each "dormitory" will feature characters from a different franchise. The project kicked off with five Alice in Wonderland-inspired boys, and has now added The Little Mermaid to its roster.
Check out the game's take on Ursula, Flotsam, and Jetsam, now reimagined as students living in the Octavinelle dormitory:
Azul Ashengrotto: CV Atsushi Tamaru (Talken, Sword Art Online). The leader of the Octavinelle Dormitory. Azul also manages the university's café. He's reliable in an emergency, but also very greedy.
Floyd Leech: CV Nobuhiko Okamoto (Rim Okumura, Blue Exorcist). One of Azul's assistants. Floyd tends to be moody and emotional, and is prone to overthinking things.
Jade Leech: CV Wataru Komada (Chris Koron, The [email protected] SideM). Azul's other assistant and Floyd's brother. Despite being twins, they have markedly different personalities. Jade is calm, polite and civil.
At present, it appears the game is poised to introduce five more dormitories based on other Disney properties.
Twisted Wonderland is due for release in Japan later this year.
