    When you say five characters have been announced, were there any hints or indications from sources that more characters would be made available?

    • DyLaN

      I think the 5 refers to Madoka, Homura, Sayaka, Kyoko and Mami.

      • notentirelythere

        I meant, of course those five would be playable, but saying that five have been “revealed” implies there will be more characters, like from a spin-off or something.

    i dunno, december is a bit soon. i’d rather they take their time and make an awesome game

  • Shippoyasha

    I kinda want to see Kazumi and a lot of witches and maybe even other magical girls outside of what’s shown in the show. Foreign magical girls? Or at least other girls from other prefectures.

    • DyLaN

      I think you have a better chance seeing other MGs from the spin-off mangas…. They announced 3 more new PM spin-off manga and one of them is about Jeanne and the another one is all new cast. There will be a new Oriko manga too.

      But yeah, wish we can get some Oriko/Kazumi cameos.

  • Anzac

    Wish Namco would release this overseas so I can go full Homu.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      idk, but this is not a part of shounen jump or any jump series

    • DyLaN

      Like what RS said, this isn’t a Naruto/One Piece game and its frm NBGI…… Yeah.

    • chibiwall

      I would too

    TGS Trailer is available:

    Sound seems a little bit off, though

  • Kayseur

    There’re some new infos about the limited edition on the website. http://madokamagica-game.psvita.bngames.net/

    Looks like there’s a book, the box, a drama CD, a cleaner tissue, some download codes for DLC outfits and a code for a “Homura Voice World”, don’t know what that is but the pre-ordering bonus is a Mami version.

    ALL OF MY WANT!!!

  • TomSkylark

    Er, so if this features characters willingly going into domains without large-scale ethical quandaries about it, then is it safe to assume this takes place after the series? I have zero clue about the expanded universe for the franchise, so I don’t know if that got resolved or something differently elsewhere.

    • Göran Isacson

      From what I’ve heard it’s an alternate universe, where Madoka actually becomes a magical girl and makes a different wish: that “all five girls will have faith and reliance on each other to defeat Walpurgis Night”. Essentially you as Madoka, I presume, have to go around and strengthen social links ala Persona to give everyone the strength of heart to overcome it by traditional means.

      • TomSkylark

        Huh. Well it seems like that kind of throws out what made the anime so distinctive (and smart, as a deconstruction of the genre), but I suppose ethical quandaries don’t exactly make for good action games.

        • Göran Isacson

          Possibly. It seems like they want to do a more straight up version this time around, to have a story where the girls actually learn from their mistakes and grow and don’t meet bad ends based on their flaws and so on and so forth, soo yeah. I guess it’s for the people who wish they could have the plot take a happy end?

          Or man, wait and see it just be a MASSIVE SPOILER HO SHIT SPOILERS DON’T READ UNLESS YOU WANT SPOILERS
          a dream of Godoka as she imagines how things could’ve gone if she just acted sooner.
          HERE ENDS SPOILERS OR START IF YOU’RE SCROLLING FROM THE BOTTOM UP YOU’RE WELCOME FOR THIS WARNING

    • DyLaN

      Frm the trailer it implies that Madoka told Homura that she wish the girls would cooperate with each other and ask Homura to achieve it be4 she rewind time.
