One of the biggest new mobile games is teaming up with one of the biggest new anime series. Level Infinite’s Goddess of Victory: NIKKE smartphone game launched a Chainsaw Man crossover event on Wednesday, which will run from February 22 until March 14.
The title is straightforward: “BULLET X CHAINSAW.” NIKKE’s gameplay combines gacha card collecting with shooter-style gameplay, while Chainsaw Man is about a guy who can turn his head into a chainsaw. However, only girls are allowed in the world of NIKKE, it seems.
