Closed beta testing begins in next few weeks
Publisher Garena announced on Wednesday that it will publish the Black Clover M: Rise of the Wizard King mobile game in select markets globally. Closed beta testing is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks. The company streamed a trailer:
The game will launch worldwide in the first half of 2023 for iOS and Android as a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. The game was originally scheduled for worldwide release in 2022, but the game developer Vic Game Studios decided to delay its release to further improve the game’s quality.
The game will support English, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish language options.
Bandai Namco Entertainment launched the Black Clover Phantom Knights (Black Clover Mugen no Kishidan) smartphone game in Japan in November 2018, and then released the game’s English-language version for Android and iOS devices in January 2020. The game ended service in both languages in December 2020.
Yūki Tabata launched the Black Clover manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2015. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally and in print, and Shueisha‘s MANGA Plus service is also publishing the manga digitally.
The manga’s anime adaptation premiered in Japan in October 2017. The show was originally listed with 51 episodes, but it continued into a new season with episode 52 in October 2018, and continued on again into a new season in October 2019. The show aired its 170th and final episode in March 2021.
