The official website for the Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic fantasy television anime series began streaming the fourth promotional video on Sunday. Unlike the third video, the new video highlights the prominent creators on the project:

The original manga re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights). Shinobu Ohtaka, the creator of Sumomomo Momomo, has been serializing the manga since 2009, and Shogakukan is publishing the 14th compiled book volume this month. The manga has 4.4 million copies in circulation.

Director Koji Masunari (Read or Die, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW) is helming the anime adaptation at A-1 Pictures. Toshifumi Akai (Kokoro Connect, Sound of the Sky) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Accel World, Guilty Crown, My-HiME) is handling the scripts. Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Evangelion, Berserk films) is composing the music.

This 90th anniversary project from Shogakukan will premiere on October 7 and run every Sunday at 5:00 p.m. on MBS, TBS, and their network of affiliates.

Update: The anime's website has a teaser page for a new adaptation of the manga that will be officially announced next Wednesday. However, the page allows people to enter a "magic word" to guess the adaptation, and guessing "ゲーム" (game) returns a new page that teases, "Magi Game Green-Lit?" [Via 0takomu]

Update 2: The teaser page also returns similar special pages when the magic words are "RPG" and "3DS." The website also posted the sixth piece of key visual art:
