The first game-exclusive character to be revealed is Peace, voiced by Sumire Uesaka (Lum in Urusei Yatsura). Uesaka's new single, "Rebellion," appearing on her upcoming album LOVE CRAZY, will also be used as the game's theme song. Codes for in-game items will be included in both regular and limited printings of LOVE CRAZY.
Pre-registration for the game starts February 1, and the game itself is expected to launch sometime this year in Japan. There's no news yet concerning a global release.
Set in a dystopic near future where otaku culture in Japan has been obliterated by a mysterious organization known as "SSC", Magical Girl Destroyers follows the misdaventures of Otaku Hero—a young revolutionary who loves otaku culture—and Anarchy, Blue and Pink, a trio of magical girls who admire him. Together they struggle to create "a world where you can say what you like about what you like as much as you like."
Magical Girl Destroyers is directed by Hiroshi Ikehata and features animation production by Bibury Animation Studios. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan on Mainichi Broadcasting System and other stations beginning in 2023.
