Mobile game publisher GameSamba posted a press release last month to announce a Tokyo Ghoul mobile game, and the announcement included a quotation from FUNimation Entertainment CEO and President Gen Fukunaga stating that a third Tokyo Ghoul anime season is “set for 2016.”
GameSamba and Funimation have the same parent company, Group 1200 Media. The two subsidiaries previously announced a free-to-play online Fairy Tail RPG.
The Tokyo Ghoul mobile game for Android and iOS is also slated for 2016.
Funimation confirmed with ANN that it is “anticipating a 2016 release,” but the company did not specify whether it meant a release for the mobile game or the anime’s third season. The company did not respond to ANN’s requests for clarification as of press time.
