What You Need to Know:
- Earlier today, Crunchyroll officially announced a new in-game event for "Grand Summoners" featuring Crunchyroll-Hime, their anime mascot. "Grand Summoners" is a Japanese RPG mobile game that frequently features collabs with popular anime series. Crunchyroll-Hime will be the first ever worldwide exclusive character in the game and she'll be voiced by Rian Tachibana.
- This in-game event, starting August 28th, will feature Crunchyroll-Hime as an exclusive, playable character alongside Yuzu, her mortal black cat companion. Crunchyroll-Hime will be summonable in Kitsune Herofest Adventure alongside other legendary Grand Summoners heroes. Crunchyroll-Hime will also have themed Equips available in Equip Summons.
- Crunchyroll-Hime is “Grand Summoners” first global-exclusive character, created with hand-drawn animation that was then pixelated to create her unique in-game look. Crunchyroll-Hime’s mortal cat companion, Yuzu, also fights alongside her with 1:1 animation, copying every move she makes. The detailed behind-the-scenes creation of Crunchyroll-Hime will be featured in an exclusive web-documentary from Crunchyroll’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram shortly following Crunchyroll-Hime’s release.
- Fans will also receive free Crunchyroll-Hime themed stickers, in-game currency, and more just from logging in during the Crunchyroll-Hime event. Grand Summoners will be celebrating Crunchyroll-Hime’s arrival with two login bonuses featuring free rare items and in-game currency. Players logging in during Crunchyroll Expo will be treated to surprise gifts in addition to Hime’s chat-sticker filled login bonus.
- Tachibana will also appear at the upcoming Crunchyroll Expo, Crunchyroll’s owned anime convention taking place over Labor Day weekend, to give fans a special preview of the event. She is attending the Crunchyroll Games Industry panel, along with the Crunchyroll Hime panel, to talk more about embodying Crunchyroll’s princess. The Crunchyroll Hime in game event will run from August 28th to October 31st.
- “Grand Summoners” is currently available for download on iOS and Android.
