Those attending Anime Central can visit Sekai Project at Booth #61 for information as well as special giveaways. Fans can also interact with the company on Facebook and Twitter utilizing the hashtag, “#SPACEN2016.”

In the spring of 2231 humanity had evolved and a new kind of communication ability called “telepathy” had emerged.
In his first term at school, Yotsuba, takes notice to a girl who doesn’t use these newly developed telepathic abilities, and as the days pass by, the girl remains shut in and closed off to the world around her. One day, in the yard of his home, Yotsuba finds a Phillips-head screwdriver. He soon discovers that the misplaced screwdriver came from a nearby abandoned manor and proceeds to investigate.
Why does this girl not utilize her telepathic abilities? What will Yotsuba find inside the mysterious abandoned manor? The answers to these questions await player discovery in 2236 A.D.
NOTE: An all-ages version and adult version of 2236 A.D will be scheduled for release on Steam and Denpasoft respectively.
Developer: Broken Desk
Medianne Phirtia, a student residing in Midgard, has long-held admirations for ‘Celestria’ — it’s a place spoken of in fairy tales where magic users dwell. During her study breaks, Medianne would often indulge her curiosity by reading books about such tales…until finally, she was able to confirm the existence of Celestria thanks to her adept research. The mysterious ‘Tower of Phantasm’ that lies in the very center of the world: that is the entrance to Celestria!
In MAGICAL×SPIRAL players will climb perilous tower floors, battle waves of increasingly difficult monsters, and upgrade their magical abilities to summon spirit allies to come to their aid in this unusual magic-based action game!
