Bushiroad is planning a The New Prince of Tennis game for Switch, the company revealed today. Additional information, including a release window, was not provided. Bushiroad merely dropped the short announcement on Twitter without sharing anything else about what fans can expect from the project.

The Prince of Tennis is a Japanese manga series from Takeshi Konomi. Between July 1999 and March 2008, it saw 379 individual chapters and forty-two volumes. In the middle of its run, Trans Arts made an anime that spanned 178 episodes.

Bushiroad has announced Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Sakuretsu!! Chorogon Breath, a new game based on the manga and anime. It will launch for Switch in Spring 2022.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is a shooter that will have players flying, shooting, and punching. Bushiroad teases: “Don’t miss these impressive dragon girls rampaging their way through the game”.

Bushiroad has shared a new trailer for the Switch version of BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!, its upcoming rhythm game. We have it below.
