Magica Wars Zanbatsu (Mahou Shoujo Taisen Zanbatsu)

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Original creator: 2.5 TV, Gainax
Developper/Publisher: Galat Games
Console: PS Vita
Release: March 27, 2014
Plot summary: The dragon sleeps under the ground of this land… It gives an abundant harvest on the land when sleeping, but brings a disaster when it is awake. In every decade or hundreds of years, the dragon moves its body as if it tosses about unconsciously. The movement becomes the distortion and causes impurity. This “impurity” forms the corrupted being known as Magatsuhi, which lavishes an evil on people. And now, there is a huge indication of a distortion as Magatsuhi outbreak were now spread across the prefectures of Japan. Gods foresaw the greatest harm would happen to Japan, divide own power and give it off as a messenger of God in Japan to gather mediums, or “Magica” who can expel the “impurity” and exorcise Magatsuhi. With the magical weapon the power of Gods, the “Magica” will fight to stop evils in Japan.

Amane Sakaki is a Magica from Shimane who did lose the memories of her life for unknown reasons. All she can remember is having a great mission to accomplish, something that she doesn't fully understand herself. This mysterious girl is currently on a journey with her misaki Yamada, who also suffers from memory loss.


For those who didn't know (the majority unfortunately), Magica Wars Zanbatsu is a video game based on the Magica Wars franchise which spawned 26-episode anime shorts from Gainax, two manga adaptations (one of them being Karasuma Zero-jo Tantei which centers on Mebuki the Kyoto Magica) and two mobile game adaptations (Lock-on and Tactics). Amane Sakaki appeared in the final episode of the anime series and I feel like that one was an advertisment to the Zanbatsu game.

The game mechanics and story seems interesting from the looks of it, I'll plan to buy it in Christmas along with the PS Vita console even though the game itself isn't available outside of Japan.

PS: You can even discuss the other MW-related games as well, especially if you actually had high knowledge of the franchise.

Here's a gameplay overview of the first few minutes of the game. You play as Amane Sakaki, a Magical Girl hailing from Shimane prefecture who has no memories except for what seems to be an urge to fulfill a particular duty. The girl with flaming red hair would be one of her companions in the game and is also a Magical Girl. You mostly fight beings called Magatsuhi, with minor mobs that you need to kill in order to deal damage to the bigger boss on the same map.

If you are interested to see how the gameplay works before buying the game, here's the list of short episodes based on that. For some reason, I really wish that the series itself need some desperate attention and that'll hopefully grow in the future.


Here's the list of characters in distinctive parts, given the series' large cast:
