Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record is a smartphone exclusive role playing game scheduled to be distributed from Aniplex and developed by F4samurai in July 2017. The game will be available on iOS and Android. It follows the story of Iroha Tamaki, a magical girl who arrives at Kamihama City to find her missing younger sister. The theme song is called "Relationship" which was written and composed by Sho Watanabe and sung by TrySail.

Summary

It was first announced in 2011 that a Gaiden work of Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica" would be developed. On September 22-25, 2016 the game was officially announced at the SHAFT 40th anniversary event "Madogatari"[1] . Atsuhiro Iwakami, the producer of the original anime said "Since it seems that it will take some more time until the anime's new work, the idea that I want to make a title that "Madoka Magica" is active will work."

Ume Aoki was responsible for the design of the original character that serves as the game's protagonist, as well as designing more than 10 new and original characters for the game. Gekidan Inu Curry is also responsible for the designs of the new witches. In addition to this, Shaft has produced the opening animation and magical girl transformation scenes.

Gameplay

Iroha Tamaki is the main character of the story. The gameplay follows a "Main Story", which is the focus of the game, a "Side Story" which is a timeline different from the Main Story, and "Character Story" where the background of each character is further developed. It features the magical girl cast from the anime and four original magical girls created for the game . The game will also feature other characters from the spinoff mangas such as Oriko and Kirika. The game uses character designs, animation, and music from the anime as well as incorporating new designs and songs for the dialogue scenes. Characters are superdeformed or "chibi" in the fight scenes. Players can also team up in a move called 'Connect' to defeat powerful enemies. The game will also feature a new gameplay element called "Doppel" in which magical girls can summon their witch forms and use new powers in combat.

A battle against other players unfolds in the Mirror Witch's Barrier

Within the mirror witch's barrier, a battle with the other player's reflections will unfold. Pass through several of the "mirror's layers" and aim for the center of the barrier.

Doppel

According to the official website "In Kamihama City, some magical girls activate the power of "Doppel". This is the ability to activate and freely exercise the power of the inner witch when the soul gem gets cloudy, only the awakened magical girl will have it!"

In general, a magical girl changes into a witch when her soul gem, which is the main source of magical power that is created as a result of contracting, becomes cloudy. But in the world of Kamihama City the "Doppel" power is invoked instead. A magical girl's appearance changes into that of their witch form but will still leave her magical girl form intact resulting in a hybrid of their magical girl and witch forms. When doppel is activated, the magical girl is able to use powerful techniques they would not normally be able to use.

Characters

As stated earlier, Ume Aoki was hired for the original character designs of the new magical girls that will feature in the game. In addition, other magical girls from the Manga Time Kirara Magica series will also make an appearance in the game.

The main character of the game. A girl looking for a younger sister 'Ui" that disappeared in Kamihama City. "In order to heal my sister's illness, I made the decision to become a magical girl." While bright and serious, she can be too careful about her surroundings.

A magical girl who works in Takihara City with tremendous potential. "I was fighting with a witch with my teammates, but I came to Kamihama City to look for Homura Akemi who suddenly disappeared."

A magical girl who has been fighting witches in Kamihama City for seven years. She has been actively fighting alone without belonging to a team. "We are investigating rumors surrounding Kamihama City."

A mercenary magical girl who goes into a battle frenzy if she sees a witch. Although she can be a selfish person, her ability at battle is unparalleled.

A foolhardy magical girl who is aiming to be the strongest. She honors her historic birthplace and venerable grandfather. "I'm proud of my grandfather's Chinese restaurant."

A magical girl who is not confident and thinks negatively. "I'm loyal to people who need me, and I always take the hits whenever I can."

A weak magical girl who hoped to protect Madoka. "We are repeating the same timeline to change the future where Madoka turns into a witch. For some chance, we will search for a hope to change the future in Kamihama City." Her appearance is that of the braided Homura from Episode 10.
