The stage play's official Twitter account also revealed a visual featuring the main cast on Thursday.
The cast members are all members of the Keyakizaka46 idol group.
The play is the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise's first stage play adaptation. The play will run at TBS Akasaka ACT Theater in Tokyo from August 24 to September 9.
The play will be an original work based on the game's main story. Akiko Kodama (Live Spectacle Naruto, Fairy Tail stage plays) is directing the play, and Masafumi Hata (Mahō Sensei Negima! ~Okochama Sensei wa Shugyō Chū!~ stage play) is writing the script. Nelke Planning is producing the play.
The game's story, a spinoff of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime, takes place in the burgeoning city 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 (voiced by Momo Asakura) becomes a magical girl with a wish to save her sister from illness. Madoka Kaname (again voiced by Aoi Yūki) also arrives in Kamihama to search for her missing friend Homura.
The game launched for iOS and Android devices in August 2017.
