Interest Madoka Magica PSP Game's Revised 2nd Promo Streamed

The official website for the Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable game began streaming a revised version of the second promotional video on Thursday, one week after the first version began playing at the Comic Market event in Tokyo. The new version contains most of the same footage as the old one, but it goes more in-depth into the various bonuses extras that come with the game.
(The video contains spoilers for a crucial plot development in the anime, which the game expands upon for a new role for a major character.)
The "Limited Contract Box" edition of the game will contain a figma figure set of Madoka Kaname in her school uniform, a Blu-ray Disc with "special footage," a Kyubey-shaped pouch, a Homu-Homu handkerchief, a special clear card, a SHAFT-illustrated box, and the game UMD itself with an exclusive picture label. People who pre-order the game will receive a clip of actual film from the new transformation sequences, as well as a serial code for a custom PSP theme set.
The "special footage" Blu-ray Disc will include a "O-Kashi o Taberaretara Ureshii Natte" (If You Eat the Dessert, You'll Be Happy) gameplay video of voice actresses Aoi Yūki (Madoka Kaname) and Kaori Mizuhashi (Mami Tomoe) joining forces to fight Charlotte the Dessert Witch. It will also have interviews with the voice actresses, a gallery of event images (unlockable with a password earned by clearing the game), original wallpaper, a special gallery by the artists at Gekidan Inu Curry, the original soundtrack by ZIZZ Studio, and a character introduction gallery.
Yusuke Tomizawa (God Eater) and Yoshinao Doi (Steins;Gate, Madoka Magica) are producing the game, and the anime's head writer Gen Urobuchi (Fate/Zero) is collaborating on the project's planning and supervising the scenario. The studio SHAFT (Bakemonogatari) is producing the game's animation sequences just as it did for the original Madoka Magica anime.
Bandai Namco Games will publish the adventure dungeon role-playing game on the PSP system on March 15. The game's regular edition will cost 6,480 yen (about US$84), while pre-orders of the "Limited Contract Box" will cost 11,990 yen (US$155). Namco Bandai Games will also release a Puella Magi Madoka Magica iP app for the iPhone and Android smartphones, after releasing the earlier Mami no Dokidoki Tiro Finale (Mami's Heart-Pounding Tiro Finale) game app.
