Kadokawa, ForwardWorks, and Cave Interactive have released the debut trailer and opened pre-registration for World Witches: United Front. You can pre-register by following the game on Twitter, adding it as a friend on LINE, or by e-mail.
World Witches: United Front is an “omnidirectional shoot ’em up where witches soar the sky” in which players fight alongside “Witches,” girls with special powers, to protect the world from “Neuroi,” an alien race that suddenly emerged. Crossing series boundaries (Strike Witches, Brave Witches, etc.), the game follows an original story where the Witches of the world gather en masse, and features intense, 360-degree, omnidirectional shoot ’em up multiplayer battles for up to four players. Players will deepen their bonds with the Witches while facing a global crisis as commander of the new 509th Joint Fighter Wing unit.
Here is the story blurb:
1944. A certain place.
You are called upon to deal with the alien life-form threat that suddenly emerged.
The life-forms caused great damage to the city as they are difficult to destroy with conventional arms.
Amidst a difficult retreat, a girl extended you a helping hand.
The girl called herself a “Witch.”
The abilities possessed by a Witch made it possible to destroy the alien life-forms and brought an end to the crisis.
At least for a short time, as the life-forms began to appear one by one in various parts of the world.
Appointed as commander, you will carry out relief activities in these places with the help of the Witches.
This story is a record of the war waged by you and the Witches.
World Witches: United Front is due out for iOS and Android this fall in Japan.
