Kadokawa announced on Saturday that a Toaru Majutsu no Index x Dennō Senki Virtual-On: Toaru Majutsu no Virtual-On (A Certain Magical Index x Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: A Certain Magical Virtual-On) manga will launch in Kadokawa's Dengeki PlayStation magazine this fall. Rōji Karegishi is writing the manga. Kadokawa is launching the manga as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for Dengeki.
The manga is based on the collaboration novel of the same name. Kadokawa published the novel (pictured at right) in May 2016. As the title indicates, the game is a collaboration between Kazuma Kamachi's A Certain Magical Index light novel series and Sega's Virtual-On video game franchise. Kamachi wrote the novel, and Virtual-On designer Hajime Katoki illustrated the book.
Sega is developing a video game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita based on the collaboration project. The "high speed battle action" game will ship in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2018. Sega outlined some of the game's features and characters on Tuesday.
