posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Magia Record: Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Gaiden (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story) smartphone game announced on Friday that the game has been delayed again and is now slated for August 22. The staff apologized and explained that the reason for the delay is to make some final adjustments to the game before its release.
Aniplex previously planned to release the role-playing game for iOS and Android devices in May but it was delayed to July.
The story takes place in the burgeoning city of Kamihama. Guided by a strange power, magical girls gather in this town and battle with a new power drawn from witches. Iroha Tamaki arrives in this town and joins other magical girls to search for her missing younger sister Ui. Before long, Homura Akemi also arrives in the town. "If I can understand the mystery of this town, maybe I can save Kaname."
The new character Iroha Tamaki (voiced by Momo Asakura) becomes a magical girl with a wish to save her sister from illness. Madoka Kaname (again voiced by Aoi Yūki) also arrives in Kamihama to search for her missing friend Homura.
The game's staff includes:
Original Work: Magica Quartet
Original Character Design: Ume Aoki
Original Witch Design: Gekidan Inu Curry
Opening Animation: SHAFT
TrySail is performing the theme song "Kakawari" (Connection). The game will be free to play, but the app will charge for certain contents. Those who preregister for the game will receive "Magical Girl Homura Akemi (glasses version)" for use in the game.
