First Look: Madoka Magica Portable
Get a first look at the PSP conversion of the anime, and its huge limited edition.
Famitsu.com has posted a screenshot-filled preview of Namco Bandai's PSP conversion of Mahou Shojo Madoka Magica. Take a look here.
Titled Mahou Shojo Madoka Magica Portable, the PSP title is being developed by Namco Bandai and Nitroplus. As detailed earlier in the week based off a Dengeki PlayStation report, the game conversion is a dungeon RPG. The fully voiced story is based off the anime but has a multi scenario and ending system that could result in unseen developments.
Gameplay is split into adventure and dungeon parts. During the adventure part, you select a character with whom you'd like to speak from a map, leading to conversation events and possibly new dungeon stages. In the dungeon stages, you form a party and advance through the depths of a dungeon.
Namco Bandai is including animation scenes from the anime along with new transformation sequences created by animation studio Shaft.
Madoka Magica Portable will be released on March 15, 2012 in two forms, a standard version priced ¥6,480 and a limited version priced ¥11,990. The limited edition includes a figma figure, a Blu-ray with special videos, a pouch, a handkerchief, a special box with an illustration from Shaft, and a special picture label version of the game's UMD. The standard version includes a special box and a DVD version of the limited edition's Blu-ray video disc.
Joining the screens and details, Namco Bandai opened a teaser site for the game today. Access it here.
