Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger) worked on the game's opening theme, while Shunsuke Tsuchiya and Mariam Abounnaser are composing the in-game music.
Square Enix released SINoALICE for iOS and Android in Japan in June 2017. Taro Yoko (NieR: Automata, Drakengard) is the game's creative director. Pokelabo (Senki Zesshō Symphogear XD Unlimited, Senran no Samurai Kingdom) is developing the game. MONACA's Keiichi Okabe is composing the music and jino is designing the characters.
The game's story revolves around popular fairy tale characters trapped in the world of "Library." Their only wish is to bring someone back as their author.
