Looks like there’s going to be another Japanese digital collectible card game entering the market soon. GungHo, the folks behind Puzzle & Dragon, just announced a new competitive title called ChronoMagia that will be out for smartphones in Japan in the near future.

The game will have a heavy strategy focus and use many cards, which is the basis of any collectible card game really.

Here’s what we know so far:

-The game’s lead producer is Daisuke Yamamoto, who produced Puzzle & Dragons. He said in the Famitsu interview that Chrono Magia is a very important project and plans to make the game with “the best members and with plenty of spirit.”

-The game’s OST will be composed by Yuzo Koshiro. You remember him from Streets of Rage 2, Etrian Odyssey, and the early Ys games from Falcom, right?

-Every card game needs a ton of illustrators for their content, right? Here’s the current list of featured artists for Chrono Magia:

  • NINNIN
  • Shinnosuke Hino
  • Rare Engine
  • Yoichi Ito
  • Erajima
  • Takahiro Araya
  • Miho Midorikawa
  • Ittoku
  • Shishizaru
  • Hideaki Takamura
  • Yosuke Adachi

-The game will also be available outside of Japan, making this a possible third game to be competing in the mobile CCG-slash-esports space. The first two are Hearthstone and Shadowverse, in case you’ve been living under a rock.

Based on these Famitsu scans so far, there are schoolgirls with katanas, lolis, fantasy beasts, fantasy beauties, and two-headed dragons. We can’t wait until we get more info on how the game works, so in the meantime, enjoy the pretty pictures.
