A live-streamed presentation for Noriyasu Agematsu, RUCCA, and Elements Garden's Technoroid multimedia project debuted a promotional video on Saturday. The video announces the main staff for the anime and the character roles for the previously teased main cast. Saturday's presentation also announced the anime's Technoroid Overmind title and 2022 television broadcast, as well as the game's Technoroid Unison Heart title and early 2022 smartphone release.
The story of "wretched, beautiful androids" is set on the entertainment tower Babel, the new source of hope for humanity after climate change has submerged the world underwater. Several unique musical units compete to rise to the top of Babel, by moving the hearts of both humans and androids with their performances.

Destiny).
Elements Garden (music composer for Uta no Prince Sama, Symphogear franchises) and RUCCA (theme song lyrics for ID: INVADED, Bloom Into You) are composing the music, and Yukio Nagasaki is directing the sound. LAM and Katō's Rai-Rai Public Company, Ltd. created the title and logo, and LOGIC&MAGIC is producing the CG.
