Fans of Mob Psycho 100 have a new iOS and Android free-to-play game to look forward to from Crunchyroll Games. I know certain fans of the franchise are waiting for an actual console game, but as fans, we sometimes have to make do with what we get, right?

It will feature the original voice actors as well as follow select elements from the first season of the show.
Furthermore, it will boast full 3D graphics and “will allow players to build a team of their favorite five Mob Psycho 100 characters. Each character will have a special move set and a corresponding animated cutscene ahead of their special attack.”
