Earlier this month, it was announced that mobile game SINoALICE would be crossing over with intense high school gambling anime Kakegurui xx. Global servers had a little longer to wait, but the time has come — starting today, the stars of the anime can join your team!
The game’s official YouTube channel dropped a new trailer today, showing us more of what’s in store:
The event’s new storyline, titled “Fairytale Gamblers,” transports the Little Match Girl from the Library of SINoALICE to Kakegurui‘s Hyakkaou Private Academy, where she must gamble to survive. She’s forced into the role of a pet after sliding to the bottom of the hierarchy — but then “another Little Match Girl appears…”
Players will be able to earn the special collab class Yumeko Jabami/Breaker as a login bonus during the event:

Other collab classes can be summoned via the event’s “Wager on the Tank” Step Grimoire. Up for grabs are Sayaka Igarashi/Paladin, Kirari Momobami/Sorcerer, Mary Saotome/Crusher, and Little Match Girl/Hyakkaou Private Academy (who appears to be functionally a Minstrel):
Midari Ikishima/Gunner will also be available as a bonus in a Twilight Crystal purchase package (note: transaction requires real money):

All characters are voiced by their original anime voice actors, so look forward to new dialogue from all your favorites!
The event is rolling as we speak, and will be available on mobile until May 10. This marks just one of many collabs the Yoko Taro game has had with popular anime — previous events have featured characters from Higurashi When They Cry, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Code Geass, and Black Butler, to name a few.
