Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is Getting a Shoot ‘Em Up Game

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S, the second season of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, just finished airing. But the franchise still has more coming. Not only will the Blu-ray and DVD releases include an unaired episode titled “Japanese Hospitality (My Attendant Is a Dragon),” but there’s also going to be a shoot ’em up video game.

The game will be called Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon Sakuretsu!! Chorogon Breath, and it will become available sometime in the spring of next year. You’ll be able to play it on PlayStation 4 and Switch, and both Japanese and English versions are being made. It’s been confirmed that Yūki Kuwahara, who plays Tohru in the Japanese version of the anime, will be involved in the video game.

The game is being developed by Kaminari Games, which is a subsidiary of the company Moss. Moss is also behind the Raiden series.

Seven Seas Entertainment releases the original manga, which was created by Coolkyoushinja. The publisher gave this description of the story’s setup:

“Miss Kobayashi lives in a ordinary apartment, along with her new maid, Tohru…a dragon girl! Tohru despises all humans except for Miss Kobayashi, who she adores. Tohru works diligently to serve her beloved mistress, but there are a lot of little things that she can’t seem to quite get right…. Take a peek into the daily life of a hard-working office lady and her inept dragon maid in this inhumanly delightful comedy!”

The original manga debuted in May 2013. This led to Kyoto Animation’s anime adaptation, which began in 2017. With both seasons, Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it came out, and Funimation has been supplying an English dub. No word yet if the English dub actors will be involved with the English version of the game.
