The five games that Crunchyroll’s new service is debuting with are unsurprisingly in line with the platform’s Anime and East Asian brand. The launch titles are: “River City Girls,” “Wolfstride,” “Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery,” “inbento,” and “Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions.”
“River City Girls” is seeing its mobile debut — the game is a beat-em-up action title that features characters from the “River City” and “Double Dragon” franchises. Notably, the game supports local two-player co-op with Bluetooth controllers. “Wolfstride” is also a mobile debut exclusive for Crunchyroll and is an RPG featuring former Yakuza members and a giant mecha tournament.
The indie game “Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery” is a more serene experience and is classified as a visual novel. It involves puzzle solving and painting brush strokes to control the game and “explore beautiful panoramic, hand-animated worlds inspired by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli visuals.” The innovative puzzle game “inbento” offers over 120 levels and heavily features cute cats and bento cuisine. “Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions” is a tactical action game that takes place within the imagination of a young boy named Damien. The game features characters from the popular online manga publication Shōnen Jump+.
Android users can start playing any of these titles today. And if they need to take a break from playing Crunchyroll’s games, they can go right back to watching Crunchyroll’s media.
