Bushiroad released a mobile game of Crayon Shin-chan of popular Manga/Anime developed by Applica late last week.
Crayon Shin-chan is a Japanese popular Manga/Anime started in 1990. It follows the adventures of the five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin-chan" Nohara and his parents, baby sister, dog, neighbours, and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture. Particularly, anime is very popular, the movies are produced every year from 1993, and they are appreciated from adults. Now, they were exported to other Asian countries, and the copyright trial occurred in China and Korea. (via Wikipedia)
A theme song of this year's movies is Japanese POP star Kyary Pamyupamyu!
Unexpectedly this is the first time that a game for smartphones of Crayon Shin-chan was released.
This does not have the particularly new element. However, anyway this is cute. BGM, graphic design, UI, texts, etc...all of them reproduce the atmosphere of the anime faithfully. I think the most important element is a voice. Japanese game industry utilize voice actors. In Japan, voice actor is a popular job and their voices are very popular among fans, too. In mobile games, it's an important element for acquisition of active users. In this game, Shin-chan talks like anime. His unique tone is impressive.
I think that it's accepted even if this is released in other Asian countries. However, unfortunately it's released only in Japan now. Official site is here.
