The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation has new details on Little Witch Academia: The Witch of Time and the Seven Wonders, Bandai Namco’s recently announced PlayStation 4 game based on the popular anime.
Little Witch Academia: The Witch of Time and the Seven Wonders is a side-scrolling action game in which players control Akko and friends, and overcome enemies and obstacles while clearing stages. Stages feature switches that open hidden doors, treasure chests, traps, and more.
Screenshots in the magazine outline the following controls:
- Circle: Light Attack
- Triangle: Heavy Attack
- Square: Fire Ball
- X: Jump
- L1: Guard
- R1: Dash
- L1 + R1: Chant
In addition to Akko, her friends Lotte Yanson and Sucy Manbavaran will also appear as playable characters, and can use attacks that take advantage of each character’s area of expertise.
Dengeki PlayStation also has an interview with producer Yosuke Futami, who confirmed that while Andrew Hanbridge and Croix Meridies will not appear in the game, basically every character outside of those two will appear. The nameless mob students that appear in the anime will also be named. Some characters from among them have important roles, which may change how you see them in the anime. Post-launch downloadable content is also under consideration.
Little Witch Academia: The Witch of Time and the Seven Wonders is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2017.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
