Call Up The Girls In Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram With Your Phone (Really!)

Namco Bandai is developing Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram for PlayStation Vita and the limited edition bundle has some unique items. On top of the game, you get an art book, Dessert Witch screen cleaner (I think that’s Charlotte’s second form), soundtrack CD, a code for five extra costumes, and a Voice World with Homura’s Time Travel.

 

What’s Voice World? It’s an interactive phone call with an anime character. You actually call the character’s phone number and then punch in a code to access the story. Namco Bandai developed this service and launched it with a bunch of Idolm@ster characters that players help during the call. The story changes depending on your responses so it’s kind of like a visual novel, sans the visuals.

 

The Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram limited edition retails for 8,980 yen ($90) and a standalone game is 5,980 yen ($60). The game comes out on December 19 and first print copies also include a Voice World code for Mami Tomoe’s Hotline.

    Thanks for explaining the voice world! I’d been puzzling over that one.

    I’m not sure I could trust the Dessert Witch to just clean my screen…

    “Mami Tomoe’s Hotline”
    … sounds, ehem … questionable

    • Thrasher429

      Well at least her hotline would only leave you buried up to the neck in costs.

      • PreyMantis

        I hope the price never get high; otherwise, it would leave people headless in how expensive it is.

    • Alberto Maytorena

      Oh, Mami… you’re always ahead from the other girls.

    I’m pretty sure I’ll melt like butter if Sayaka whispered to me over the phone. Dangerous stuff!

    So much pink. I have heard about this anime and now I’m even more interested.

    Do you need an actual phone or it meant a phone-in-game?

    EDIT: After clicking the link tied to the wording in the article, seems to be an actual phone. Hmm. I thought it would’ve been more practical as an in game feature since the VITA does have a mic and a touch screen to mimic modern phone inputs.
