Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time comes with a free game called Magic Knight Grand Charion. This is available for those who have pre-ordered it on the PlayStation Store.
Magic Knight Grand Charion is a shoot-em’up. It feels like a pretty simple game that might be developed in a short time. As a free game, it does feel a little weird to see it next to the actual game since there is a separate icon for it and it is indeed treated as a new game. It could have been incorporated in the actual game but this doesn’t seem to be the case here.
As for the gameplay, you can watch us play the first level in the video above. The game retains its simple concept for the most part. The shoot-em’up sections end with a boss fight followed by a first person fight that usually happens in a mech. This all feels rather clunky in execution to the point that the first person segment is easily the worst part of this short game. The controls just don’t feel as tight and precise with the mech combat.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is available now for the PS4 and PC. You can read our review of the full game from here. It was published by Bandai Namco.
