Luna Nova Magical Academy awaits, but wait, there’s more!
Earlier today, a new TV spot for PlayStation 4 game Little Witch Academia: Toki no Mahō to Nana Fushigi (Little Witch Academia: The Magic of Time and the Seven Wonders) hit the web. The ad confirms a November 30 release date, and that studio Trigger is producing new anime footage for the title.
Furthermore, the commercial reveals that the game will have a pre-order bonus. Try to contain your excitement… and hide those pitchforks.
The limited edition of the game will also ship on November 30. The release will include an art book, a drama CD, a special-edition Blu-ray, and a Chariot card. The goodies will be packed in an art box illustrated by the team at Trigger.
Folks who pre-order Little Witch Academia: Toki no Mahō to Nana Fushigi will receive a code for a digital copy of Madō Senshi Guransharion (Sorcerous Warrior Grancharion). The game revolves around a mecha that appears in episode 18, though no other details have been confirmed.
Little Witch Academia began its life as a theatrical short, based on a concept by Yoh Yoshinari. Yoshinari served as director and character designer on the project, which was animated by Trigger (Kill la Kill). Masahiko Otsuka (Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt) wrote the film’s script, while Michiru Oshima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers) crafted the soundtrack.
Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade is the direct sequel to Little Witch Academia. Yoh Yoshinari returned as director and character designer on the project, which was animated by Trigger. Michiru Oshima returned to provide the feature’s soundtrack, while Michiru Shimada (Assemble Insert, You’re Under Arrest!) wrote the script.
Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade was born from Kickstarter. The OVA was successfully funded by 7,938 backers, who contributed a total of $625,518.
The two films inspired an anime TV series, which ended today. Yoh Yoshinari (Gurren Lagann Parallel Works, Little Witch Academia) returned to the director’s chair at Trigger, with Shuhei Handa (Little Witch Academia) providing character designs. Mitsuru Shimada (Little Busters!, Shugo Chara!) is in charge of series composition.
