Roll call, PlayStation Nation!

Randy here from Bandai Namco. Today, I’m thrilled to share that everyone’s favorite little witches will be enchanting players this Spring, as Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time releases on PS4 May 15th, 2018! Based on the popular anime series Little Witch Academia, join Atsuko Kagari and her friends in an all-new original story, as they work together to solve a mysterious occurrence at Luna Nova Witch Academy in this side-scrolling action adventure RPG. For those of you unfamiliar with the series or need a refresher, let me drop some knowledge.

Class is in Session!

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time

Little Witch Academia is an anime series created by famed anime studio, Trigger, known for their work on Kill la Kill. The series follows Atsuko Kagari a.k.a Akko, an ordinary girl who enrolls into Luna Nova Academy after seeing a famous witch, Shiny Chariot, in action at a magic festival. From then on, it becomes her mission to enroll in the same school Shiny Chariot attended and become a great witch just like her. Here you follow her journey from ordinary girl to witch, making a variety of friends and going on adventures along the way. The series is currently streaming on the Netflix app on your PS4s in case you’d like to do your homework.

Assignment Time!

Now that you have some background, let’s talk about what you’ll be embarking on in Chamber of Time. As Luna Nova quickly approaches summer break, our loveable Akko finds herself getting in trouble (as usual). She ends up getting sentenced to clean the school’s library by teacher, Anne Finnelan.

Upon putting a book away, she unlocks a strange chamber concealed behind one of the bookshelves and decides to investigate. The hidden chamber reveals a lounge that leads into a dungeon! After escaping the dungeon, a weird occurrence happens where the day repeats itself over and over again. It’s up to Akko and her friends to solve the mystery and get things back to normal so they can finally start their vacation.

You’ll build a party of three witches, choosing from fan favorites like Akko, Lotte, Sucy, Diana, and a few others as you explore dungeons and battle your way through various bosses. Then, you’ll earn points and unlock new spells that you can use to customize each character, including Shiny Arc!

Looks great! I’ve seen the two short films but have yet to see the series. Is this a PSN exclusive or will there be a physical version as well?

    If you liked the two OVAs, I highly recommend the series! Definitely check it out on Netflix if you have the chance. The game will be available digitally, with the pre-order rewards being exclusive the PlayStation Store :)

    I own over 300 PHYSICAL PS4 games. This game looks fantastic and I would gladly pay $100+ for a collectors edition but $50 for a digital rental license? Not a chance.

    TL;DR: No Physical, NO BUY.

Are the theme and mini-game only available exclusively for the PSN store or can I pre-order at a different retailer and get the theme and mini-game?

    The theme and the mini-game are exclusive pre-order rewards for the PlayStation Store.

So is the mini game a seperate download? Will it be included in the base game?

Also love the series and im surprised how close the graphics look to the art. At times you can barely tell they’re 3D models

Will the game have English VO? Love the show voices but I know Namco Bandai has a reputation for not doing dubs for anime games.

    Hope so. For this game, JP only=no buy, Dub only/Dual audio=buy.

    Yeah hope they keep that reputation.

Does the theme play any music? Do we get the mini-game right away when checking out like with the theme or do we not get it until the game releases?

Since it looks like there is a representative of Namco here I’d like to ask some questions.

First, will there not be a physical release? And lastly, I haven’t seen any footage with the English dub, will the gave one? What about a Mexican dub?

    gundamcero said:

    There is no physical release and there is no dub. Japanese with english subtitles only.

    humberto_ugalde said:

    A ludicrous shame on both accounts.

Welmosca said:

I still need to watch the anime,its on ma backlog like other hundreds but side-scrolling action adventure RPG?…count me in.Will keep ma eyes on the game but its a confirmed buy after I watch the anime.

PS:Can’t believe there are people complaining about jap voices only.Surely not anime fans.
