Japanese game company Mobcast and Eitarosoft are currently working on a game temporarily titled “Project U,” reports SoraNews24.

Project U has been described as a “character raising action RPG.” Players would be similar to an action role-playing game with multiplayer features. Apart from cooperative play, gamers may also fight each other in player versus player battles.

Meanwhile, KLab Games and Axel Game Studio are also working on their own version, which has been scheduled for release within the year.

KLab’s game will include the Japanese voice cast for the anime.

In December 2017, an animated special included with the Blu-ray box was announced at the annual Jump Festa anime and manga expo in Japan.

“Ghost Fighter” grew to popularity in the Philippines around the mid-1990s. It has since become a huge favorite as anime further increased its fans in the country. Alfred Bayle /ra
