posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
An animated commercial for KLab's Magatsu Warheit battle RPG smartphone game debuted on Thursday and features a cameo by virtual YouTuber Dennō Shōjo Siro, but animated. She's wearing a costume from the game in her brief appearance.
The game is slated to launch at the end of July and is currently accepting pre-register applications. An anime adaptation is also in the works. KLab announced that it will distribute Miku Miku Dance files of Siro if over 70,000 people pre-register for the game. The first milestone of 30,000 people was already reached and KLab offered Siro's 'ahoge' hair as an in-game reward.
Siro previously teamed up with voice actors Maaya Uchida and Aoi Yūki for the Magatsu Wahrheit at AnimeJapan this year.
The game takes place in a world full of both "Light" and despair. The "Mobile Army Corps" is the only existence able to stand up against the 10 "Lights" in order to keep the world from meeting its end.
KLab describes the game:
In this battle RPG, the player is a member of an elite, mobile fighting force known as the “Kidō Heidan”. Rich graphics bring an even richer world to life, with sweeping horizons, and unique, colorful characters and storylines that keep players coming back for more. An all-star cast of creators and a totally immersive field of play bring the story to life.
Dennō Shōjo Siro's YouTube channel has more than 400,000 subscribers as of the posting of this article. She is affiliated with smartphone app developer App Land.
