Since the revolutionary anime that is Puella Magi Madoka Magica was released, the magical girl genre hasn’t been the same. Now the series is getting its own smartphone game, Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record, populated by a bunch of new magical girls.

All We Know About the Upcoming Madoka Magica Game

As previously reported, the story of Magia Record will take place in the fictional city of Kamihama, a separate city from Mitakihara, the city the original Madoka Magica took place in. Normally, magical girls in the Madoka Magica world are very territorial and rarely work together—if you don’t know why, go watch the series—however, a strange power in Kamihama is drawing magical girls to the city, allowing them to remain in their magical girl forms and giving them strange new powers. As such, where the original anime only had a handful of magical girls, Magia Record will have much, much more. Currently, over thirty characters are scheduled to be in the game with more on the way. Here are some of the new magical girls that will make an appearance in Magia Record, as well as some old familiar faces.
