Just like we confirmed back in July Konami will publish their magic academy communication game in North America. However, the name Tongari Boushi to Mahou no 365 Nichi wouldn’t work here so it’s being renamed Little Magician’s Magic Adventure.
Glance at any screenshots and Little Magician’s Magic Adventure looks like Harry Potter meets Animal Crossing. I played a Japanese build of the game at Tokyo Game Show and it felt like Harry Potter meets Animal Crossing. My hands on experience was limited to fishing and playing with other tools also found in Nintendo’s Animal Crossing series.
A freeform Tokyo Game Show demo isn’t the best way to get a full impression so I spoke to a Konami rep and asked what makes Little Magician’s Magical Adventure stand out. The key difference is Little Magician’s Magical Adventure is more story oriented. You aren’t just going to play Fed-Ex for lazy dragons. Little Magician’s Magical Adventure has specific story missions for players to complete. Along the way you’re going to meet a wacky cast of characters like an angry looking panda, a walking TV set, and a sphinx. Here’s a look at some of them.
