Launches monthly mobile drama 'The Twelve Gentle Hitmen'

Konami subsidiary Kojima Productions has launch a new mobile content site aimed at women called The Twelve Gentle Hitmen, reports Dengeki Online.

Available on all three major Japanese networks, The Twelve Gentle Hitmen tells the story of twelve assassins that 'convict evil without using the law'. By paying a monthly subscription fee of 315 Yen (approx. £1.50) users can download monthly stories and audio dramas acted by popular Japanese voice actors.

The project is a collaboration between famed girls manga artist You Higuri, who is in charge of character design, and Kojima Productions, who are handling general production of the content.
