We’ve been hearing about this new mobile game from Aniplex of America for a while now. The details started coming out months ago and then we received pictures and trailers. The wait for U.S. and Canadian fans is finally over. Aniplex of America is proud to announce that Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story is now available in the U.S.A. and Canada for iOS and Android. Developed by f4samurai (Ange Vierge Girls Battle, Hortensia Saga), the creative team behind the iconic Puella Magi Madoka Magica including Gekidan Inucurry (Doroinu), original character designer aokiume, and studio SHAFT (MONOGATARI Series, March comes in like a lion), joins forces once again to bring a new Magical Girl story to your mobile phone.
Players will have a chance to embark on a fantastical adventure in the world of Madoka Magica by building a team of Magical Girls and fighting their way through three different types of stories with over thirty unique Magical Girls. From following Iroha as she hunts for her sister Ui or traveling with Madoka and her friends through another timeline, to learning more about each Magical Girl by battling through their own unique story, players can embark on a one of a kind journey.
Leading up to the game’s release, the free-to-play mobile game had successfully launched a pre-registration campaign and the “Magical Girl CM Campaign” where players worked together to unlock the in-game prizes of 500 Magia Stones and highly sought after Magical Girl, Homura Akemi (Glasses).
“We are extremely happy to have this wonderful opportunity,” says Masaki Sato, Magia Record producer from f4samurai. “We were absolutely thrilled to see with the positive response we received from fans we met at Sakura-Con in April when we announced Magia Record’s English release and to see how much they loved the Madoka Magica series. As we prepare for the game’s launch, we really hope fans in the United States and Canada will enjoy this new Magical Girl adventure.”
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Aniplex of America has invited popular voice actresses Chiwa Saito (voice of Homura Akemi) and Emiri Kato (voice of Kyubey) for the Magia Record at Anime Expo Panel on July 5, 2019. Aniplex of America will also have a Magia Record display as part of their Anime Expo booth on July 4 – 7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Based on the beloved anime series that revolutionized the magical girl genre, the mobile game immerses fans into a fascinating world inhabited by an eclectic group of characters brought to life by a stellar cast of voice actresses. Since announcing the English version of the game in April, the mobile game has released videos introducing fans to Magical Girls Iroha Tamaki (voiced by Momo Asakura), Yachiyo Nanami (voiced by Sora Amamiya), Felicia Mitsuki (voiced by Ayane Sakura), and most recently Tsuruno Yui (voiced by Shiina Natsukawa).
