Wizard Naruto, also known as BLACK CLOVER, is one of the most popular shonen right now. Right alongside fan favorites like MY HERO ACADEMIA and ONE PUNCH MAN, some consider the anime a contender for the “Big Three.” Now, at the height of its popularity, BLACK CLOVER is getting its own fighting game.
For those unfamiliar with the series, BLACK CLOVER follows two powerful brothers as they endeavor to become the world’s most powerful wizard. Asta and Yuno are both orphans in a world where just about anyone is capable of performing magic. Yuno has very high magical power and has been recognized for it since birth. Even more, he was born with the ability to control his magic perfectly.
His brother, Asta, is a rare case of someone born with zero magical capacity. In contrast, he’s Yuno’s opposite in more ways than that, also lacking his brother’s handsome looks, height, or cool disposition. But, Asta eventually unlocks a unique ability to nullify his opponent’s magic. After that, his extraordinary physical abilities let him best even prodigious wizards.

BLACK CLOVER: QUARTET KNIGHTS allows players to face off using characters from the anime and manga. The game uses a massive 3D map with players fighting on a team of four to defeat enemies and complete objectives. Check out the trailer from Bandai Namco Entertainment:
Also, you can check out an English version of the above trailer here. Most noteworthy is that this trailer shows off some new gameplay and the ‘Role’ system of QUARTER KNIGHTS. Like in a MOBA style game, different classes have unique abilities.
Fighter role characters like Asta charge in to launch direct, hard-hitting combos. Shooters launch magic attacks from afar to pick off enemies. Support characters can launch area of effect (AoE) spells to assist their team with buffs or obstruct enemies. Finally, healers utilize a variety of spells to restore health and boost recovery for teammates. Seems like there are plenty of potential setups to consider.
