Waifu lovers out there may be familiar with Freezing, the sci-fi manga franchise serialized on Comic Valkyrie and written by Dall-Young Lim and illustrated by Kwang-Hyun Kim, which sparked two anime series in 2011 and 2013.
Turns out that it’s getting a game titled Freezing Extension in Japan, by the Japanese publisher Creek & River. The game has been available for a while in Korea, but a Japanese release might make it a bit more accessible for the western audience.
Considering the nature of the manga and anime, you probably won’t be surprised at all to learn that it’ll be a gacha-based free-to-play RPG for iOS and Android, and it’s releasing in Japan this summer.
Today the publisher revealed the first characters and their inevitably-alluring artwork. First and foremost we get the bespectacled protagonist Satellizer El Bridget, followed by Baek Seol Hee, Rana Linchen, Chiffon Fairchild, and Elizabeth Mably. There’s a waifu for every taste. Of course, considering the gacha nature of the title, there’s probably going to be a veritable army of them.
Considering that the manga is really good, I’m going to keep an eye on this. In the meanwhile, you can enjoy a brief trailer and the artwork below.
If you’re interested in my point of view on how to survive this kind of gacha game while enjoying the waifus without devastating your bank account, you can check out the latest episode of the Weebcast.
