The voice actors of the anime’s main cast will make a return, with familiar names like Inori Minase and Kana Hanazawa set to reprise their roles in the game.

Mages Inc. is at the helm of this new title. As the developer responsible for legendary visual novel Steins;Gate, players of the genre definitely have something to look forward to this March. Some of the staff at Mages, formerly known as 5pb., have also worked on Bravely Default. Those who owned a Nintendo 3DS ought to remember the title, which was GameSpot’s 3DS Game of the Year back in 2014.
