'Tokyo Ghoul' season 3 release date news, update: New 'Tokyo Ghoul' mobile game coming in 2016

(FUNimation Productions official website)Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.

"Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 is highly anticipated despite the lack of details, especially regarding its air date. Fans, in turn, rely on rumors or news regarding "Tokyo Ghoul," one of which is about a mobile game based on the anime.

FUNimation, in collaboration with GameSamba, is set to release the "Tokyo Ghoul" mobile game this year. The game reportedly takes after the anime and not the manga, which makes a difference because the television show has deviated from the manga storyline on which it is based.

According to GameSamba, the game will focus on the conflict between ghouls and the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG). Players will choose a side between the two, which will set the path of the conflict.

The CCG hunts down ghouls or the flesh-eating monsters that plague the streets of Tokyo. These ghouls look human and cannot be distinguished from the latter unless they show their red eyes or "kagune," their weapon made from their blood cells. Their only source of food is humanity, because they cannot eat anything else but human flesh.

While a normal human is defenseless against even a weak ghoul, the CCG members are skilled enough to kill these beings and their skin is much harder to penetrate. Players have the choice to either hunt down humans as ghouls or go after ghouls as part of the CCG.

"Ever since we began simulcasting the anime series last year, fans of the Tokyo Ghoul have been clamoring for a mobile game," said Gen Fukunaga, FUNimation CEO and president. "With Season 2 now finished, the anticipation for the mobile game has grown higher."

Unlike the anime, the air date of which is still unknown, the game is set to be released this year with no forecasted delay or whatsoever. While it may be enough to satiate some thirst for the third season, "Tokyo Ghoul" is no doubt still clamored for.

"Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 is rumored to premiere in Winter 2016, with some reports indicating a delay to 2017.
