Fans of the light novel A Certain Magical Index have something to look forward to this year as Square Enix has just announced an upcoming mobile game based on the series. A Certain Magical Index: Imaginary Fest will be released for Android and iOS devices in Japan this year. It will be a card game where players can collect their favorite characters from the anime series, movies, and light novel.
The game is set in a world where people called Espers, Magicians, and Gemstones have supernatural abilities. The names given to these gifted individuals depend on how they acquired their powers.
Espers acquire their abilities through science. Magicians study artifacts and magic. Gemstones, however, are Espers who acquire their powers without depending on artificial methods. Players will be recruiting these characters with unique abilities in order to assemble their own deck and participate in duels.
Those who will be playing the game in hopes of seeing their favorite characters from the anime in action are in for a treat. The game will be reproducing scenes from the anime in 3D, allowing players to relive the story as they play. New characters from the side-story will also be making their appearance in the game.
A Certain Magical Index: Imaginary Fest has only been announced for a Japan release as of this writing. While a lot of games never really make it to a global release, there is always hope. Players who want to stay updated regarding the game’s launch date can visit the official website.
