Bandai Namco Arts and DeNA have announced takt op., a new, classical music-themed project cross-media project consisting of a game and TV anime.

Here is an overview of the project:

Introduction

“Music is power.”

The musical compositions that dwell within girls become their power.

Legendary operas, grand compositions created in an era long ago.

“Musicartou”—new life breathed into those scores.

In a world where music is lost, the girls fight using the power of music in a fleeting, yet beautiful story of fate.

They merely aim for the joy that lies ahead.
