About Hitori No Shita: The Outcast

About the game
The game, like its source material, will be a fusion of modern-day Asian culture, mystical martial arts action, and supernatural folklore.
Little is known about the plot of the game at this stage, though it has been confirmed all original story elements from both the webcomic and the animated series will be used. With that in mind, the TV adaptation plot summary is as follows:
Chou Soran leads a very common college student’s life until he finds himself caught up in a terrible incident that happened in a small village. As he was walking through a graveyard, he is assaulted by zombies. Thinking that it was over for him, a mysterious girl carrying a sword suddenly saves him and disappears.
Hitori No Shita: The Outcast will be released on Android and iOS mobile devices. No announcement has been made regarding a release on alternative platforms.
Release date remains TBA.
