Momo Asakura voices new magical girl searching for her sister

The official website for the Magia Record: Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Gaiden (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story) smartphone game revealed a key visual and story information on Monday. The visual, illustrated by character designer Ume Aoki, features the new magical girl Iroha Tamaki (voiced by Momo Asakura) along with returning character Madoka Kaname (again voiced by Aoi Yūki).

The story takes place in the burgeoning town of Kamihama. Guided by a strange power, magical girls gather in this town and battle with a new power drawn from witches. Iroha Tamaki arrives in this town and joins other magical girls to search for her missing younger sister Ui. Before long, Homura Akemi also arrives in the town. "If I can understand the mystery of this town, maybe I can save Kaname."

The new character Iroha Tamaki became a magical girl with a wish to save her sister from illness. The website also lists Madoka Kaname as a game character: she arrives in Kamihama to search for her missing friend Homura.

Aniplex plans to release the RPG for iOS and Android devices in spring 2017. The game will be free to play, but the app will charge for certain contents. Those who preregister for the game will receive "Magical Girl Homura Akemi (glasses version)" for use in the game.

The game's staff includes:

Original Work: Magica Quartet
Original Character Design: Ume Aoki
Original Witch Design: Gekidan Inu Curry
Opening Animation: SHAFT
Development: f4samurai

TrySail is performing the game's theme song "Kakawari" (Connection).
