Crowdfunding underway for Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing


Looking to the skies to save me

Virtual Reality enthusiasts UNIVRS has begun crowdfunding for a new VR title based on the popular – and pretty rad – anime/manga franchise Little Witch Academia. Now underway on Kickstarter, the project hopes to fund new title Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing.

As you’ve no doubt guessed from the title, VR Broom Racing will see players assign the role of a new student in Luna Nova Academy, who will go on a series of sky-high engagements with series regulars such as Akko, Lotte, Diana and, my personal favourite, Sucy.

The goal is a pretty mighty five million yen (roughly $46,000), of which around 1.3 million has been raised at the time of this writing. The Kickstarter is being run in conjunction with studios Trigger and Toei, as well as merch makers Good Smile and other outlets, and will close on August 18. If successful, Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing will be developed for Oculus Rift, Quest, PlayStation VR and SteamVR.
