Also inspires manga, earlier anime video; MY FIRST STORY band performs TV anime theme

The f4 Fan Festival announced on Saturday that a television adaptation has been green-lit for Sega Games' Hortensia Saga smartphone role-playing game. Liden Films is animating the project, and the rock band My First Story (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova, Golden Kamuy) is performing the theme song.

In addition, Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine will serialize a manga adaptation of the game.

Sega launched the game for iOS and Android devices on April 22, 2015. The player takes on the role of a young feudal lord who learns the hidden truth of the Kingdom of Hortensia through battles and encounters.

The free-to-play game (with fees for certain in-game items) allows players to field up to five characters in a party comprising different classes with different abilities in battle. Combat consists of each party's characters standing in a 3x3 grid. Each class is able to attack and influence a different specific section of the grid.

The game already inspired an animated video from Liden Films, and that earlier video also featured an image song by My First Story:

Liden Films also produced the opening movies for Part 3 of the game, as well as for Hortensia Saga Zero.
