posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sega began streaming a new promotional video for its A Certain Magical Virtual-On (To Aru Majutsu no Virtual-On) PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game on Tuesday. The video highlights Misaki Shokuhō, the pilot of SGV-417-I/VSL Angelan "Hive Eaters."
The game will ship in Japan on February 15.
The PS4 version of the game will cost 7,990 yen (about US$72), and the PS Vita version will cost 6,990 yen (US$63). The limited-edition Discipline 55 version for PS4 will bundle the 500-page "Chronicle 20" book and the Cyber Troopers Vitual-on Official Sound Data 18 soundtrack CD for 12,490 yen (US$112). The limited-edition Toaru Majutsu no Archive (A Certain Magical Archive) version for PS Vita will bundle the "Toaru Majutsu no Virtual-On no Subete" booklet and a soundtrack CD for 10,990 yen (US$99). People who pre-order the game will receive the "A Certain Magical How to Play" beginner's introduction booklet.
Virtuaroids will have a fourth weapon in the game, as opposed to the three present in previous Virtual-On installments. The fourth weapon will depend on the pilot riding the Virtuaroid, with the robot serving to enhance the character's abilities and offer new attacks. In addition, the game will have various stages for battle, including a university city stage.
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. Sega and Dengeki Bunko announced the game and began streaming a teaser video in March.
Kadokawa published the original 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) collaboration novel in May 2016. Kazuma Kamachi wrote the novel, and Virtual-On designer Hajime Katoki illustrated the book. A manga adaptation of the novel launched on Kadokawa's ComicWalker site on December 28.
