During a livestream hosted by the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Bandai Namco debuted over 30 minutes of new gameplay footage of the upcoming: Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time.
The released footage includes an exploration of the Luna Nova Magical Academy, Party Formation, and a Boss Battle against Cerberus.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time coming to the West early next year!
You may watch each section of gameplay above at the following times:
- 1:07:46 to 1:29:56
- 1:33:25 to 1:38:21
- 1:53:51 to 2:00:09
The gameplay was presented by Producer: Yosuke Futami himself (whom you’re probably familiar with for his work on the Sword Art Online franchise), and split into three different segments. Speaking of SAO, if you’re interested, check out 8 minutes of gameplay for its’ upcoming Action-RPG: “Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet” right here!
First segment consists of the Luna Nova Academy, in which “Akko”, explores the academy and speaks to students and teachers alike, and investigates the Seven Wonders of the school to progress the story.
The second part is a battle segment culminating with a battle against a boss named Cerberus, with “Amanda O’Neil” as the player-controlled character, supported by an AI-controlled Akko and “Jasminka Antonenko”.
The third and final section features the same segment, but this time Jasminka is controlled by the player, while “Lotte Yanson” and “Sucy Manbavaran” are controlled by the AI. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see the sixth playable character – Constanze Amalie von Braunschbank Albrechtsberger – in action.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on November 30, and for PlayStation 4 and PC in the Americas and Europe in early 2018.
