Bandai Namco has today announced a brand new entry into its simulation action series: A.W. : Phoenix Festa, which is set to launch in Europe on PS Vita on July 26.
Based on the popular Japanese brand, The Asterisk War, A.W. : Phoenix Festa blends dating-sim mechanics with combat all in one game, as six academies hold tournaments called Festas which pit students from each academy against each other.
A.W. : Phoenix Festa features its own original story dug out of the novel series and offers a challenging adventure with various endings, offering tons of replayability. Players can either start the game as their own character, or the game’s main character Ayato, who not only has school life and making friends to content with, but also taking part in the Phoenix Festa too.
The Japanese trailer for the game can be seen below, and offers a glimpse at the game’s character creation and gameplay.
