The publisher revealed some new information as well as some gameplay for the upcoming anime adaptation during a live stream eventyesterday.
As reported by Gematsu, the stream announced, among other things, that the characters Akko Kagari, Lotte Yanson and Sucy Manbavaran will all be playable in the game. In addition, Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time's official theme song is called "Toki no Mirage" and is performed by the same person who sings the ending credits song for the anime.
According to a conversation toward the end of the live stream (which is captured in the below video), the Luna Nova Magical Academy where the characters spend their time will be almost entirely explorable, with A+ Games, the studio working on the adaptation, saying that most of the students from the show will make an appearance in the game.
The gameplay starts around 2:48:30 and shows Akko running down halls and fighting monsters with her squad. The environments are side-scrolling but with some depth, so it looks like you can run up and down between the background and foreground while targeting enemies and blasting them with magic. A 2.5D RPG beat'em up of sorts.
If you've never had a chance to see Chamber of Time's source material in action, there are several great movies, with the series recently arriving on Netflix with subtitles.
The game will arrive in Japan this spring on November 30 on PS4, while the game is expected to arrive in other regions some time early in 2018.
