Watch Some Direct Little Witch Academia Gameplay Footage

Bandai Namco has released not one, but two new videos of Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time footage, showing off the game in all its glory. Most gameplay trailers will cut less exciting bits and pieces, but these videos include even the loading screens! Chamber of Time will be released early next year on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Here are the Little Witch Academia gameplay videos:

Chamber of Time has a different story from the Little Witch Academia anime. Here’s an overview:

After finishing their final exam, the students of the Luna Nova Academy are about to leave for summer vacation. Akko discovers a secret room in the library that leads to the Chamber of Horologium, hidden in the basement of the school. Within the chamber is a clock that uses a forbidden magic to manipulate time; it’s one of the seven wonders of the Luna Nova Academy. Akko and her friends end up trapped in a time loop, re-living the same day over and over and over and over… Will they be able to escape this time paradox and solve all of the mysteries of the Academy?

Additionally, learn a bit more how the dungeon crawling works:

Dungeons themselves are pretty standard for an action RPG like Chamber of Time. Dungeons have a variety of difficulties, and of course, the high the risk the higher the reward. Defeating enemies will get you experience, equipment, and materials to make new items. The caveat is that you can’t equipment new items until you’ve cleared a dungeon.

Enough experience gets you a level up, as expected. You can use points to customize the characters to your liking.

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time releases in the US in early 2018 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
