‘A Certain Magical Virtual On’ Has A Very Nice Opening Movie

‘A Certain Magical Virtual On’ might end up being okay.

While I was originally a bit concerned about A Certain Magical Virtual On, from playing the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show it looks like it could be decent. Well, now we get to see the game’s opening animation and it is a lot of fun.

For those that are not steeped in Virtual On lore, the narrative for the mainline games is surprisingly involved and complex. Naturally, the games don’t really touch on this, not even Virtual On Marz, and most fans of the series have had to follow the serialized stories of One Man Rescue and Fragmentary Passage to really understand the whole picture.

So you would think that by now a series as long-standing as Virtual On would have been given an anime of some kind. In that sense, I am happy to see something Virtual On related get more of an anime feel, even if it ties into the narrative of the A Certain Magical Index series.

The new trailer (shown below) covers this new game’s opening and is suitably anime themed. It’s also based around Temjin, which is entirely fine by me as I have mained those glorious virtuaroids since the 1995 arcade original.

A Certain Magical Virtual On is released for PS4 and Vita on February 15 in Japan.
