posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The June 6 issue of Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine revealed on Thursday that Kadokawa Games is developing a Prisma Illya Nintendo 3DS game based on Type-Moon and Hiroshi Hiroyama's Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga series.
Hiroyama's manga spinoff re-imagines the Fate/Stay Night character Illyasviel von Einzbern in an alternate universe as a magical girl. The manga ran in Kadokawa Shoten's Comp Ace from 2007-2008. Hiroyama then launched two sequel manga series: Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei! from 2009-2012 and the most recent, Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya Drei!!, last year.
In the game, Illya will use elemental cards to fight enemies. In battle mode, the top screen on the 3DS will feature the characters and their Heroic Sprits fighting using common physical and magical attacks, and the bottom screen will feature the card deck the player has assembled for fighting. Mai Kadowaki will reprise her role as Illyasviel and Kaori Nazuka will reprise her role as Miyu Edelfelt in the game.
Kadokawa Games plans to release the "action adventure / anime card" game in Japan this summer in a limited edition that will retail for 9,240 yen (about US$90) and in a regular edition for 6,300 yen (US$61). Famitsu is currently hosting screenshots and character design art from the game.
An anime adaptation of Hiroyama's manga will premiere first on the Niconico video streaming website before its first television broadcast in July.
