Game launches today in multiple territories for Apple iOS and Android
April 21st, 2020 – Crunchyroll Games has announced the official launch for its newest mobile game Mass for the Dead, a dark fantasy RPG based on the popular fantasy anime Overlord. This game will feature multiplayer questing, turn-based commands, capture quests, double speed and auto-mode to battle against enemies.
Based on the popular dark fantasy isekai anime, Mass for the Dead arrives in the West just as the game reaches its one-year anniversary in Japan!
Overlord is a dark fantasy isekai light novel written by author Kugane Maruyama. In the spring of 2010, the original web novel gained mainstream popularity and was officially published by KADOKAWA’s Enterbrain light novel label in July 2012. The book has since sold in excess of 7.6 million copies across multiple volumes. The first season of the TV anime was broadcast in 2015 and has continued to the most recent Season 3 in 2018.
Once a huge hit, the popular Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game «Yggdrasil» was quietly coming to an end after a 12-year run. However, even after the servers had been shut down, the player was not completely logged out of the game. In front of the collapsed Nazarik Underground Tomb was the player Momonga, one of the strongest magicians in the form of a Skeleton… but the floor guardians have all perished. Take on the adventure along with Momonga in this dark fantasy isekai RPG!
