DevelopmentEdit

Dia Horizon was announced by Square Enix as a "mixed media project" in July 2017.[2] The smartphone game was released on Android and iOS devices in Japan on August 24, 2017, and an anime television series aired in Japan from October to December 2017. A 4-panel manga adaptation is serialized online via the official Dia Horizon website. Another manga series is serialized online via Square Enix's digital publication Manga UP! beginning from August 7, 2017. A novel written by Ghost Mikawa, titled Dia Horizon: Akatsuki no Keiyakusha, was serialized online via Kadokawa's Kakuyomu website.[1] The game was discontinued on May 31, 2018, along with King's Knight, another Square Enix fantasy mobile game.[3]

AnimeEdit

The anime series was a set of five-minute episodes, which combined elements from the game with a modern office worker's life.[4]

GameEdit

The game follows the player as a hero leading a group of adventurers to battle monsters in a dungeon. The player forms a team of four characters, purchasing different adventurers with different stats and prices. During battle, the player can either manually control the characters' attacks or let the game control it.[5]
