The world’s most favorite robot boy wonder gets his own mobile game to celebrate 50 years of Astro Boy Animation!
The timeless charm and super powers of Astro Boy helped turn Osamu Tezuka’s famous manga and anime into a worldwide phenomenon and pop culture icon. Now, Astro Boy, also known as Atom, leaps into action on the small screen with the launch of ASTRO BOY DASH by Animoca, the mobile game developer and publisher behind Pretty Pet Salon, Star Girl, Thor: Lord Of Storms, and other hits. ASTRO BOY DASH is currently available free of charge for Android devices on Google Play, and coming soon to Apple iTunes and the Amazon Appstore.
In 1963 Astro Boy became the star of his own animated television series, and became the first truly highly popular title in the collection of works that would later be grouped under the name “anime”. Over the next half century, Astro Boy starred in numerous comic books, television shows, feature films and video games that enjoyed huge popularity throughout the world. Astro Boy’s celebrity cemented the reputation of Osamu Tezuka as the “Godfather of Anime.”
Other Astro Boy titles coming soon from Animoca include ASTRO BOY DEFENSE, an action puzzle game, and ASTRO BOY PIANO, a children’s edutainment app from the company’s Baby Cortex studio.
