posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The April issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine announced on Thursday that the planned manga adaptation of Sega Games' Hortensia Saga smartphone role-playing game will launch in the magazine's next issue on March 27. Pon Jea and Seiji are drawing the manga. The manga's first chapter will feature a center color page.
The game is also inspiring a television anime series. Liden Films is animating the project, and the rock band My First Story (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova, Golden Kamuy) are performing the theme song.
Sega launched the game for iOS and Android devices in April 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.
