posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Aniplex opened a website on Friday to reveal the Magia Record: Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Gaiden (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story) smartphone game. Aniplex plans to release the game for iOS and Android devices in spring 2017.
The website is streaming a promotional video for the game that features animation. (The linked video is region-locked to Japan.)
The game's staff includes:
Original Work: Magica Quartet
Original Character Design: Ume Aoki
Original Witch Design: Gekidan Inu Curry
Opening Animation: SHAFT
Aoki is designing new magical girl characters for the game. TrySail is performing the game's theme song "Kakawari." The game will be free to play, but the app will charge for certain contents. Those interested can pre-register for the game through e-mail or through Twitter.
The website for the game features the tagline: "The magical girls' new story is written down." The story takes place in the burgeoning city of Kamihama, where magical girls who have a strong wish they want granted gather.
Thanks to Dennis R. for the embedded video.
