Japanese light novel series The Asterisk War: The Academy City of the Water will be receiving an anime adaptation set for release in October of this year, and Bandai Namco has released a teaser for the PlayStation Vita adaptation that will release later, in 2016.

The Asterisk War is an action series of light novel released in 2012 by Yuu Miyazaki (writer), Okiura (illustrator), and published by Media Factory with a manga quickly following in 2013. Chances are better than most for this game coming West, as Bandai Namco also brought us the popular Sword Art Online anime into games with Hollow Fragment and the yet to be released Lost Song. You can enjoy the game’s teaser trailer below.
