Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:

Black Clover: Phantom Knights is a new multiplayer kingdom defense RPG where players act as the captain of a Magic Knights brigade to defend and develop their Kingdom in hopes of creating the strongest brigade of them all.

Black Clover: Phantom Knights allows players to experience the world of Black Clover like never before. As captain, players can form their own one-of-a-kind brigades, choosing from popular characters from the anime, including Asta, Yuno, Yami and Noelle, as well as all-new characters introduced in the game. These unique Magic Knights brigades will embark on the game’s brand-new story, which is separate from the anime and centered around the game’s original characters.

Black Clover: Phantom Knights features high-quality and easy-to-play formation-based battles. Brigades can cut down enemies with flashy magic attacks and seize victory by adapting their formation to each enemy. For a simplified experience, players can turn on Auto Mode to enjoy the rush of magic battles without the strategic stress.
