The real-time strategy game #Compass – Combat Providence Analysis System is getting ready to arrive in a new format. The game has been quite popular for its quick multiplayer battles incorporating elements of a card game and a strategy game.
While the franchise had already stepped into the mixed media territory, it has not been a full-fledged one until now.
On Sunday, at the Nico Nico Chōkaigi 2023 convention, the “Super #Compass” stage panel unveiled a second promo video for an animation project. This project was first announced in December 2022, and the video reveals that it will premiere in 2025.
The new promo shows a battle scene where Jeanne, Amairo, and Fukagawa face Reiya, Gustav, and Ōka. The battle takes place in a virtual-reality environment. Amairo, Jeanne, and Reiya manage to secure portal keys. Jeanne is under attack by Ōka and Gustav, but Fukagawa saves her.
The background music in the trailer is composed by Hachioji-P.
