One delay after another.
An upcoming collaboration gaming project between media company Broccoli and Tokyo Ghoul manga creator Sui Ishida is postponed to March 18, 2021.
This announcement was made via their official social media handles. Btw, that’s not the first delay.
When the gaming collaboration for Jack Jeanne was announced in 2019, its expected release date was August 5. Then because of various circumstances with production, the launch got delayed to December 3.
That’s not it. Depending on the progress of the present situation, another delay was expected.
The makers knew it, the fans knew it.
And now, once again, it’s official. The game will release on March 18, 2021.
At least, that’s what they claim but who knows; we’re looking for another delay in the future.
Jack Jeanne Video Game
Set in a drama school, Jack Jeanne will feature rhythm & visual gaming elements. The storyline will center on the theater.
In December 2019, Broccoli informed that the game would have a story of as long as “20 Novels“. So, if you’re a fan of story-based games, you’re gonna love it.
The pricing Jack Jeanne video game will start from 7,8000 yen in Japan. That’s approx $71.
It’ll also release with a limited edition version that’ll further include the game itself, a visual art book, a special box, a drama CD, a novel & a vocal collection CD. All this at 12,300 Yen or approx. US$112.
Jack Jeanne Video Game Storyline
The story follows around a girl Kisa Tachibana who gave up her career in theaters to attend the Univers Drama School.
It’s an elite drama school exclusive for male actors. Here, students play the female Jack & Jeanne. At the drama school, Kisa’s enrollment wasn’t permanent. To maintain that status, she must land a lead role in the school’s play. Even that wasn’t enough. She had to hide from everyone that she’s a girl.
“What do you think?“
“Can she land Jack’s role (Male Lead) in the play that’s scheduled to take place by the year’s end?“
To get the answer to these questions, you need to wait till March 2021.
