Little Witch Academia, created by Yoh Yoshinari, known for his work on Kill La Kill and Darling in the Franxx, was brought to the streaming service, Netflix, in 2017. Any witch always has her sturdy broom with her, but what if they used them to race?
Developer UNIVRS revealed Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing, and it comes to various VR headsets between late 2020 and early 2021, later then the earlier announced June 2020 release window. To get fans a little more excited, Director Junichi Yamamoto, who created the opening and closing movies of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, has lend a helping hand in developing the title.
The developer promises players won't get motion sickness from flying around in brooms wearing their VR headsets, but it will definitely be hard to maintain a stable stomach while overtaking the witch in front of you. Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing offers both single-player and multiplayer modes, where you can either help protect Luna Nova from the ghosts lurking around town or you can put your broom racing skills to the test against other users online.
There is more than ten tracks for you to fly through, and each of them is uniquely designed and inspired from an area in Luna Nova. You will also get to choose whether you want English or Japanese voice acting, as the title features the original actors starring the anime in both languages.
