A Certain Scientific Railgun PSP Game's Promo Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Manga/anime-inspired game to ship on December 8 after several delays

Kadokawa began streaming a 171-second promotional video for A Certain Scientific Railgun (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) PSP game this past week. The video features the song "way to answer" by fripSide, the same duo who performed theme songs for A Certain Scientific Railgun anime projects.

The video highlights the involvement of A Certain Scientific Railgun/A Certain Magical Index creator Kazuma Kamachi as a supervisor, as well as the anime cast who voiced all of the game's dialogue. The game also features newly animated sequences.

The title has three forms of gameplay. In the conversation part, the player can interact with the characters seen in the anime version and obtain information key to unraveling the mysteries in the story. In the "special deduction" part's girls-talk mode, the player talks with four characters and then makes decisions on what to do next. This leads to the "special deduction" part's judgment mode where the closer the players gets to the truth, the higher the game's gauge rises. In the action part, the characters are recreated in 3D graphics for battles.

The limited first edition of the game will bundle a figma figure of the character Kuroko Shirai, and all pre-ordered copies will include an exclusive screen-cleaning cloth illustrated by J.C. Staff. The game will ship on December 8 after several delays.
