Discussing the worldwide release of the RPG, Yuito Kimura, Executive Director & Producer of Princess Connect! Re: Dive at Cygames said: “I’m truly delighted that we can finally make this title available to both gaming and anime fans in Western regions, which of course includes fans of Princess Connect! Re: Dive.”
They added: “The game was developed as a fusion of anime and RPG elements, providing users with the innovative experience of ‘playing through an anime.’ We hope that many of you will be able to enjoy this fresh, new experience”
