Popular mobile game, Kamen Rider Atsume gets released on the 3DS eShop in Japan.
The popular Japanese mobile game, Kamen Rider Atsume, was released on the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS in Japan on January 25, 2017. The game was originally announced in 2015 and released to iOS and Android mobile devices in the spring of 2016.
Kamen Rider Atsume was developed by Hit Point, the same developer as the more ubiquitous mobile game, Neko Atsume. Both games have a similar goals of “collecting” characters– in this case, Kamen Riders.
Players set out items such as outdoor furniture or fountains along with Hearts of Justice to attract characters, such as Kamen Rider 1 or Shocker Combatmen. Characters also include heroes and villains from recent and currently airing series, such as Kamen Rider Drive, Ghost, and Ex-Aid. Players are encouraged to take in-game photos of the characters to learn more about them.
The official page from Toei notes:
“Kamen Rider Atsume” is casual game about taking care of a neglected place, using the popular game “Neko Atsume” as a base. You’ll do things such as placing items on the field, and then simply wait. Place items to defeat the mischievous Shocker combatants, and a Kamen Rider will appear and fight.
Of course, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, the successor in the new generation of Kamen Riders, is making an appearance! You can do things such as seeing the Riders that have appeared in your game in the “picture book”, receive placement items from boss fights and minigames, and enjoy it in your own way. You can also take pictures of the Kamen Riders as they appear, and post them to your favorite social media network!
“Kamen Rider Atsume” is developed by Kotobuki Solutions Co., Ltd. (Head office: Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture, President: Hiroyuki Kisakazu), and is managed byHit-Point Co.,Ltd. (Naka Ward, Nagoya City, President: Mitsuro Mitsuoka).
At this time, Kamen Rider Atsume is only available in Japan for the 3DS, iOS, and Android phones. Availability in other languages and countries has yet to be announced.
