"Madoka Magica Online" Prepares for Beta with Recreation of Anime Scenes

New closed beta phase of browser board game starts next month

On June 10th, voice actresses Ai Nonaka (Kyoko Sakura) and Kaori Mizuhashi (Mami Tomoe) will be hosting a special web radio show launching registration for the new phase of Puella Magi Madoka Magica Online beta testing. Testers will be selected in a drawing on June 15th. And, to really drum up excitement, some of the anime's famous scenes have been recreated in the browser-based game's cute "Nendoroid" style.

 

SPOILER WARNING

 

The browser-based game will work like a board game, with a party of magical girls traversing a randomly generated digital board as they prepare to battle Walpurgis Night. The official website boasts that the game features "every character" in cute Nendoroid-like style, with customizable parts for over 400,000 unique arrangements.


Once the player makes a contract, they roll virtual dice to move across the board, hitting penalty "barrier of the witch" spaces and beneficial treasure chests.
