Japanese developer HEXADRIVE has announced the US release of their free-to-play JRPG Magical Passcode 1111.

The backstory behind this one is that a young boy named Spellenya is the last surviving member of a magical race once thought extinct — because the humans slaughtered his race in a war. You’d think this would make him bitter, but he’s fully willing to team up with a human girl named Nefaria to battle against a greater threat. They both look like the same chibi anime character anyway.

How will they combat this threat? By collecting creatures called Magi! Gameplay in Magical Passcode 1111 is a lot like Pokemon — you collect an army of Magi and have them fight for you by commanding their actions. Four Magi can be wielded at a time.

  • Fast-paced Gameplay: Build a squad of up to four Magi and quickly jump in and out of battle with an intuitive touch-based battle system! Each fight lasts from a few seconds to a couple of minutes, making it perfect for quick breaks or commutes.
  • Real-Time Magical Battle System: Allocate Magic Points to teammates, then launch your assault all at once in real-time! Each attack combination will deal or heal damage, add buffs or debuffs, and unleash devastating special group abilities. But be careful – your MP is a limited resource that doesn’t come back until the quest is finished.
  • Love Leveling System: At the heart of the story, and the game itself, is building your relationship with your Magi teammates. Learning each of their likes and dislikes is key, because the closer you grow, the stronger they become! But making one happy might just tick another one off, so you’ll have to find the right balance between your extremely opinionated cadre.
  • Fully Realized Story and World: Spellenya’s world is filled with love and tragedy, hope and heartbreak, and it’s all brought to you in stunningly detailed and colorful artwork and animation. It may fit on the small screen, but its heart is big enough for any JRPG fan out there!
