Vanguard ZERO is an upcoming card-battling RPG that's based on the anime Cardfight!! Vanguard. Players can look forward to a variety of game modes that encompass both solo and online play. It will be heading for both iOS and Android devices on April 9th.

For fans of singleplayer, there will be a Story mode where you'll be able to go through the anime's narrative from the very beginning, so players who are new to the series don't have to worry about getting lost. There will be multiple fights to get used to the rules of the game too.

Once you've finished the singleplayer you might consider battling online in Fight Mode. If you're not ready to commit to the competitive world just yet though, you'll be able to fine-tune your skills against CPU opponents before taking on players from all over the world.

Away from all the card battling mayhem, you'll have a personal room that you'll be able to decorate with an array of furnishings and characters from the anime series. Fans of the show will probably be able to enjoy a fair bit of fan service here, which any anime game worth playing looks to deliver in spades.

The game has currently accumulated 40,000 pre-registers since the campaign began at the end of February. This means that the fourth goal has been hit for the campaign which means players will receive 10 booster packs to help start their collection.

However, if another 10,000 people also register their interest between now and 9th April then they'll net all players a further 10, bringing the total to 20 booster packs. These will be obtainable through the in-game Gift Box once Vanguard ZERO is live.

Vanguard ZERO will be available on both the App Store and Google Play on April 9th. You can pre-register your interest now over on the official website. It will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
