During Anime Expo 2019, GamePress got the opportunity to chat with Masaki Sato, Magia Record producer from f4samurai.
We talked about why Aniplex and f4samurai decided to launch the English server, MagiReco's place within the Madoka franchise, and their future plans for the mobile game.
Do you mind introducing yourself to the American audience?
How is the localization handled for Magia Record?
I check it to make sure the expressions being used are accurate and appropriate for the target market, as well as fun to read.

What is the plan for the English server?
Can you talk a little bit about the role of Magica Quartet?
What's the plan going forward?
Magia Record has a huge presence here at Anime Expo. You are in the hallway, down here in the exhibit hall, you have that giant presentation yesterday. You brought us Chiwa Saito, her first time in America 15 years, and Emiri Kato's first time visiting Anime Expo. What's the plan going forward? Are you going to do a lot more exhibitions like this, to keep the flame alive.
Magia Record's role in the larger Madoka franchise?
What happened to my Magia Report? Like it's a really big part of the game. You know, this is not officially on EN.
What's the best way to provide feedback?
Wait, you read those?
In the FAQ, there's a place where you could send us questions.
What would you wish for?
I guess I'll end by asking you this silly question. If Kyubey approached you and asked you to make your wish to become a magical girl what will you wish for?
That's a tough one.
Will you say yes?
Nothing. I don't think I need Kyubey though.
You already have the best job?
I do what I want to do.
Okay. That's one less soul for it to harvest.
One less person falls victim.
