Square Enix began streaming a promotional video for A Certain Magical Index: Imaginary Fest (Toaru Majutsu no Index: Imaginary Fest), the new smartphone game based on A Certain Magical Index franchise, on Friday. The game's official Twitter account also revealed on Friday that the game will launch on July 4.
The "academy supernatural powers battle role-playing game" will be free to play, but there will be optional in-game charges. Maon Kurosaki performs the game's theme song "JUNCTION."
The game will feature characters not just from the anime and anime film projects, but also characters from the novel series and spinoff manga as well. The game will reproduce scenes from the anime in 3D. Players can create "dream teams" of decks of their favorite characters.
The franchise previously inspired two PlayStation Portable games in 2011 and 2013. The A Certain Magical Virtual-On (To Aru Majutsu no Virtual-On) crossover game launched on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in February 2018. Previous mobile games in the franchise include Toaru Majutsu no Index Struggle Battle, which ran from 2012 through March 2018, and Toaru Majutsu to Kagaku no Puzzle Decks, which launched in 2014 and ended service in 2016.
