Kadokawa began streaming the first promotional video for Kadokawa Games' upcoming video game adaptation of Kenji Inoue's Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts (Baka to Test to Shōkanjū) light novel series and anime on Friday. The two-minute video features gameplay footage and introduces the game's main characters and cast. The cast from the anime will reprise their roles for the voiced game.
The board game/adventure game will allow players to experience the summoning exam wars of the story. Players advance through the game board part of the software by spinning a roulette, and they collect equipment and money along the way. There will also be a part of the game where players can interact with every character, as well as beast-summoning battles.
The game will ship for the PlayStation Portable handheld console on December 13. A limited-edition version will retail for 8,190 yen (about US$104) and the standard edition will retail for 6,090 yen (about US$77).
