Black Rock Shooter FRAGMENT: About The Game
Now, this is a franchise that has sprouted out in a lot of different directions ever since its first debut on the media. To put things into a little perspective, Black Rock Shooter is a franchise that was all launched as a browser game that anyone could play on their computer. Later off, mangas were written and sold for the franchise and soon became popular among the Japanese crowd. Soon after, the game was followed up by an OVA that was again well received by the public, and that further led to the development of an eight-episode TV series. This was the beginning of popularity for Black Rock Shooter and it really led them forward. Soon after, the franchise released yet another game for fans of the original, but this time on the Playstation Portable, which was popular at the time.
And now, the franchise is ready to take a step in a new direction as it has introduced Black Rock Shooter FRAGMENT, a new game in the franchise that is reportedly under development and has been introduced in a teaser trailer that also showcases some of the new characters and designs that the game features. Also, a list of illustrators and artists who are working on the game has been released to the public. During the trailer, the theme for the franchise plays in the background as details of what is to come are revealed. The characters on the show are apparently going up against something scary that just happened to pop up from the ground, and it looks dangerous for them. However, that is all we really know about the game for now.
However, the franchise is also expanding in other directions as Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall was recently announced for television and has been shown in Japan. So things are looking really good for the franchise as it aims to satisfy on both the fronts of entertainment, the interactive as well as the passive.

Black Rock Shooter FRAGMENT: Release Date
While Black Rock Shooter FRAGMENT was announced back in 2021, things have been moving a little slow when it comes to the development of the game. While we never really got a concrete release date for the game, it was originally supposed to be released sometime in 2022. But with the way that things are, it seems that the game is going to be delayed. From my estimate, the game is probably going to be released sometime in 2023 and is going to take a little time. However, that is okay because we have Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall to hold us for now.
