To celebrate 300,000 pre-registrations for the upcoming title, the SINoALICE Little Mermaid character design was revealed on the game’s official Twitter account, along with accompanying comments by Character Designer Jino and Creative Director Yoko Taro!
SINoALICE is an upcoming mobile game where all the characters are based on fairytales. So far, we’ve seen Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Alice, Hansel Gretel, Cinderella, Ibara-hime, Kaguya-hime, and Pinocchio. Next up is Little Mermaid – her design is so pretty! She’ll be voiced by Mamiko Noto.
Jino: (Eh? There’s no description of her feet in the manual, and I haven’t drawn her any tail either… Ok! Let’s just draw her some feet, just in case!)
Yoko Taro: Until now, I’ve commented honestly on every design by saying: “She’s super cute!! I think she will sell well!!”But I’ve been told: “Yoko Taro really doesn’t seem bothered in his comments”. Therefore, this time I would like to change my comment to: “If I had to say whether she was cute or not, I would say she was super cute!! If I had to say whether she will sell well or not, I would say she will!!” But even if she does, Jino and I won’t get any money. I can’t sleep at night when I think that everything will go into the pocket of someone from the top management at Pokelabo or SquareEnix.
Yoko Taro may have been repeating himself, but I have to agree – she really is super cute! The art for this game is incredible – I look forward to seeing who will be introduced next!
SINoALICE releases late May in Japan for iOS and Android devices.
