Waccha PriMagi! Franchise’s New Game Project Confirms Its November 2 Launch
Following the broadcast of the TV anime’s final 51st episode in Japan on Sunday, the Waccha PriMagi! idol-themed mixed media franchise has announced that its new game project entitled Waccha PriMagi! Studio is set to launch on November 2, 2022.
Waccha PriMagi! is the latest entry in Takara Tomy Arts’ “Pretty Series” and has been available in Japan since October 2021. It is an amusement game where players can enjoy a realistic experience as if they were using magic.
Based on the concept of “I am the star,” its new series Waccha PriMagi! Studio will be developed in the style of a music studio, focusing on “My Character” more than ever before. In the game’s studio, the player and their friends’ “My Chara” are lined up like performers on a music show, and the player can walk down the runway, participate in various events including coding polls, to create the game together. Through creating “My Chara,” the game offers a “metaverse” experience in which players feel as if their alter egos are in the game.
The game will feature two magicians (Manamana) as MCs – Chimumu in her human form that was introduced in the anime’s final episode, and Myamu, who has been the main character in the show. In addition, a new mysterious princess character, Himeme, will also join.
