Promo video for December 19 Vita game also unveiled at Tokyo Game Show

Bandai Namco Games unveiled a promotional video at the Tokyo Game Show event at Makuhari Messe for its Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram (Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: The Battle Pentagram) PlayStation Vita game on Thursday. The video reveals more details and the release date for the game.

The game takes place during the events of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 1: Beginnings and Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 2: Eternal films but with the wish, "What if all five of the magical girls trusted each other and worked together as a team?"

The game will ship on December 19 in a limited edition for 8,980 yen (about US$90) and standard edition for 5,980 yen (US$60). The limited edition comes in a gold-leaf decorated box with an original soundtrack CD, a Charlotte witch portable screen, a product code for five extra outfits, and a tentatively titled "Homura's Time Travel" Voice World chat number. Those who preorder the game will receive an additional Voice World number for Mami.

People who call the hotline numbers can chat "interactively" with the two magical girls. Voice actresses Aoi Yūki (Madoka) and Kaori Mizuhashi (Mami) were present at the Tokyo Game Show stage event for the game. Mizuhashi revealed on stage that even she was not told about the hotline yet, saying, "I had no idea of this feature's existence."

Yūki stated that she had fun recording Madoka screaming in the game which adds another layer to the character. Mizuhashi added that she hopes Mami does not die in the game so she can be with a lot of friends since the character wanted human contact so badly in the series. The game will use Yuki Kajiura's background music from the anime. The characters Madoka Kaname, Mami Tomoe, Homura Akemi, Sayaka Miki, Kyoko Sakura and Kyubey are confirmed to appear in the game.

Artdink (Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, Gundam Battle franchise) is developing the 3D action game for PS Vita, and the original anime's Magica Quartet is supervising the brand-new, original scenario. The game will have two parts, depending on the time of day. In daytime, the player can have the magical girls interact and increase the bonds between them. In nighttime, the five magical girls battle witches. Player can keep track of their soul gem's power with a gauge that appears on the bottom left of the screen during battle.
