Anime and RPG now will have something new to play as Bandai Namco releases Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time, a new video game featuring an original storyline carved from the popular anime series by Tokyo-based anime company Studio Trigger.
Available on PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam), Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is a 3D action RPG beat ‘em up that follows the story of an ordinary girl named Atsuko (Akko) Kagari. Having been inspired by a famous witch named Shiny Chariot, she enrolls at Luna Nova Magical Academy, a prestigious school for young girls training to become witches. Before starting summer vacation, Akko and her new classmates find out about an inexplicable phenomenon at Luna Nova caused by the Seven Wonders, which has been passed down for several centuries. It's now up to Akko as she takes on the adventure to unravel the mystery surrounding the Seven Wonders.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time features main characters from the anime and original storylines for players to explore as they make their way through Luna Nova Magical Academy.
Players will be able to roam the halls of Luna Nova as Akko and partake in the student life of a witch-in-training and fight through dungeons as one of seven students from the anime series, each with their own special attacks and attributes. Two multiplayer modes are also available to play*. The first has three players cooperatively fighting through an increasingly difficult dungeon consisting of 999 levels. Delve deeper and deeper into the dungeon to battle an onslaught of enemies and uncover valuable treasure. The second mode is a two-player battle mode that will pit two teams of three characters against each other and claim victory against a variety of win conditions.
The anime series upon which this game is based, Little Witch Academia, is currently streaming exclusively on Netflix.
The game is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
