Pop in Q Smartphone Game

SEGA Announces Pop in Q Rhythm Game for Mobile, First Trailer and Website Revealed

During Sega Fes 2016, SEGA of Japan has announced that it will be releasing a mobile rhythm game based on Pop in Q, an upcoming animated film from Toei animation. Tentatively named “Pop in Q rhythm game”, the game is scheduled to be released for iOS and Android. Judging from the trailer, the visuals featuring 3D rendered characters are looking good for a mobile game. You can find the teaser website here, and we included the first trailer of the game below, along with the trailer for the film. We also added artwork for the five main characters.

Pop in Q was created to commemorate Toei Animation’s 60th anniversary. It features five middle school girls who, after a certain event, end up in a fantasy world. As luck may have it, they end up having to save that world through dance by working together. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. How it all works out will be revealed when the film is released in theaters in Japan on December 23.

Soul Reverse Zero Art

Soul Reverse Zero Surpasses 400K Pre-Registrations in Japan and Gets New Trailer

SEGA’s first game in its new Soul Reverse series, a mobile game called Soul Reverse Zero, has surpassed 400,000 signatures, doubling SEGA’s initial target of 200,000. The game uses a turn-based combat system where you can form a party with mythical heroes such as King Arthur, Brunhilde, Merlin and more. You can also team up with other players online. While the game’s story isn’t terribly original, the graphics do look good for a SEGA mobile RPG, and given the high production values I imagine SEGA is hoping to turn Soul Reverse into a strong franchise. Soul Reverse Zero will launch on November 21, 2016 in Japan for iOS and Android. You can pre-register on the official website until November 20. An official 3-part comic (in Japanese) was also posted on the website, introducing the game’s story and showing how the main characters meet.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica X Chain Chronicle

Puella Magi Madoka Magica X Chain Chronicle Collaboration Gets New Website and Trailer

SEGA of Japan have aired a trailer for the collaboration between the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica (more specifically the movie Rebellion) and their mobile RPG Chain Chronicle. At the same time SEGA have also launched a new website for the collaboration, as well as a Twitter campaign, asking people to retweet one of SEGA’s tweets 5000 times to earn an SR card of the character Homura (a goal that has already been reached). You can find the trailer (which doesn’t feature any game footage) below, but do note that it might spoil some aspects of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica TV anime series.

Sadly this collaboration, much like the one for Sakura Wars, won’t reach the West as the English version of the game has been discontinued by gumi.
