Today, during a stage event hosted at the Dengeki Bunko 25th Anniversary Fall Festival in Akihabara, Tokyo, Square Enix revealed a brand new game titled Shin Kaku Gi Kou.

The title is being developed in collaboration with Straight Edge, including Kazuma Kamachi and Kiyotaka Haimura, respectively scenario writer and artist behind A Certain Magical Index.

The opening animation is being created by Kill La Kill‘s Studio Trigger.

The full title is Shin Kaku Gi Kou to 11-ri Ro Hakai-Sha( Which translates as “Divine Angelic Skill and the 11 Destroyers“) and it’s a multimedia project including a novel and a manga on top of the game. The manga will actually be the first to be released, with serialization starting on October 29th.

The new trailer introduces many of the main characters, and we also get to see them in more details thanks to a series of slides showcased during the presentation.

The game features a fantasy setting with giant airships and battle trains. A star-studded cast of voice actors will voice the many characters, and the main story will feature full voice acting.

The gameplay is defined “Action platforming RPG” with a sandbox block-based world and building elements. The giant machines mentioned above will, of course, be included with powerful attacks.

Below you can check out the announcement trailer, the slides, and the first gameplay trailer. As you may have already guessed, the game is for iOS and Android. It will launch in Japan in 2019.
