The second teaser commercial for Little Witch Academia: Toki no Mahō to Nana Fushigi (Little Witch Academia: The Magic of Time and the Seven Wonders), a game based on the Little Witch Academia anime, debuted on Monday. The commercial announces that the game will ship on November 30, and it confirms that the anime studio Trigger is producing new in-game anime footage.
The commercial also reveals the bonuses that come with the game. People who pre-order the game will receive a product code to download and play a special bonus PlayStation 4 game "Madō Senshi Guransharion" (Sorcerer Warrior Grancharion), inspired by a robot mecha that appears in episode 18 of the anime.
The limited first pressing of the game will include an exclusive box illustrated by Trigger, a special contents Blu-ray Disc, a drama CD, an exclusive art book, and a game original Chariot Card.
The "heart-throbbing, exciting action adventure game" tells an original story about Akko and the others searching the Luna Nova Magical Academy to uncover the seven wonders therein. The game recreates the detailed expressions and dynamic movements from the anime in 3D. The game includes "impressive" CG animation in the battle scenes.
The tagline on the game's website reads, "The story of the witches who aim for the future is not over…"
The television anime itself ended on Monday.
The show's story revolves around Akko, who as a child watched the witch Shiny Chariot perform a show, and from then on dreamed of becoming a witch. She enters the Luna Nova Academy, a school for witches that Shiny Chariot attended. In this new town she meets new friends and starts a new school life. At the school she has lessons on riding brooms and the wonder of magic, but Akko and her friends Lotte and Sucy keep getting wrapped up in tumultuous events.
The project began with a 2013 anime short that spawned the Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade sequel in 2015. Yoshinari created and directed the first short as part of the Anime Mirai 2013 initiative. Fans supported the second short via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that raised US$150,000 in six hours, and eventually US$625,518 (four times its original goal) in one month.
