Before starting summer vacation, Akko and her new classmates find out about an inexplicable phenomenon at Luna Nova caused by the Seven Wonders, which has been passed down for several centuries. Now it's up to Akko as she takes on the adventure to unravel the mystery surrounding the Seven Wonders.”

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia, meanwhile, is an action adventure title. It's due out on PS4 only in early 2018.

The series began life as a comic in 2012. An anime debuted in 2014 and is now eclusive to Netflix.
