Black Clover had its 7th anniversary this week, marking seven years of serialization in Shonen Jump, which is a remarkable feat — it’s now one of the longest-running shonen series in Jump’s history, cementing its place as one of the most influential shonen of the 2010s.

The series has several things coming up soon in its future, including a Black Clover movie, a new Black Clover Season 5 anime TV series, and a mobile game all set to release this year or next, making Black Clover a franchise to keep an eye on as the hands of time continue to pass on Asta and Yuno’s epic rivalry!

Below, we’ll go into detail about what we know so far about all of the things coming soon for the Black Clover franchise.

What do we know so far about the Black Clover movie?

The Black Clover movie was announced at Jump Festa 2022, the big event for all Shonen Jump fans as most major announcements take place there. Since that announcement, information regarding the movie has been scarce at best, but a new key visual was released, placing Yuno in center frame behind the backdrop of a sunlit city.

What significance this has to the plot of the movie is yet to be seen, but it’s interesting to see more behind-the-scenes material from the movie production come out for further speculation on what the new movie could be about. It’s speculated that it could follow the current arc in the manga, helping to fill in gaps between anime seasons.

When is Black Clover Season 5 coming out?

The Black Clover Season 5 release date is currently unknown, as the TV sequel is currently in preproduction. No further details regarding the series’ premiere have been formally announced.

In the meantime, however, the new video game — titled Black Clover Mobile — was announced at Jump Festa as a mobile game taking place in the manga’s universe. The game is set to begin service sometime in 2022, possibly following the release of the series’ movie or as a tie-in.

You can take a look at the preview they shared here:

While details on the gameplay are few and far between, the video description describes it as a mobile game that attempts to capture the moving moments of the original work, so be sure to look forward to it when it does come out!
