Takt op. Symphony is Bandai Namco and DeNA's upcoming mobile game based on the anime, launching later this year

Bandai Namco and DeNA have teamed up to announce the upcoming launch of "takt op. Symphony", which will serve as an expansion of the hit anime. The mobile game features strategic turn-based combat along with a new narrative that will add fresh faces along with beloved fan-fave characters into the fray.

In "takt op. Symphony", players will dive into a world where they'll have to fight against malevolent Despair Dolls using Musicarts. These are personifications of classical music icons, which include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Players will be able to recruit a variety of heroes each with their own unique skills and backstories, which players can discover as they progress through the game.

While there aren't too many details about the actual gameplay at the moment, the game does look gorgeous based on the screenshots available online. The character art is top-notch, and there seem to be collectible illustrations that highlight every character.
