Medianne Phirtia, a student residing in Midgard, has long-held admirations for ‘Celestria’ — it's a place spoken of in fairy tales where magic users dwell. During her study breaks, Medianne would often indulge her curiosity by reading books about such tales…until finally, she was able to confirm the existence of Celestria thanks to her adept research. The mysterious ‘Tower of Phantasm’ that lies in the very center of the world: that is the entrance to Celestria!
In MAGICAL×SPIRAL players will climb perilous tower floors, battle waves of increasingly difficult monsters, and upgrade their magical abilities to summon spirit allies to come to their aid in this unusual magic-based action game!
The company also opened a page for the game on Friday, and is also streaming a trailer.

Sekai Project describes 2236 A.D. as follows:
In the spring of 2231 humanity had evolved and a new kind of communication ability called “telepathy” emerged. In his first term at school, Yotsuba, takes notice to a girl who doesn't use these newly developed telepathic abilities, and as the days pass by, the girl remains shut in and closed off to the world around her. One day, in the yard of his home, Yotsuba finds a Phillips-head screwdriver. He soon discovers that the misplaced screwdriver came from a nearby abandoned manor and proceeds to investigate. Why does this girl not utilize her telepathic abilities? What will Yotsuba find inside the mysterious abandoned manor? The answers to these questions await player discovery in 2236 A.D.
Sekai Project will release an all ages version of the game on Steam this year, and will also release an adult version on Denpasoft. The company also began streaming a trailer for the game on Friday (Note: trailer may not be safe for work.).
