Today Bandai Namco released a new trailer of its upcoming mobile JRPG That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime ISEKAI Memories, tied in with the popular light novel, manga, and anime franchise.
This time around, we get an anime-style introduction to the original story of the game, which includes new character like Rimuru’s alleged daughter Shinsa and the Witch of the Mirror, Izis.
We already know that That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime ISEKAI Memories will be released simultaneously in all regions this year, including North America, Europe, and Asia.
You can check the trailer out below.
Since the trailer is in Japanese, here’s an official description for both new characters:
Shinsha (Voiced by Tomori Kusunoki)
Rimuru’s daughter (?) Just like Rimuru, she also possesses Great Sage and Predator, allowing her to acquire abilities from other monsters.
Izis (Voiced by Rie Takahashi)
he alluring witch of the mirror. She stalks Rimuru as her prey, and will do whatever it takes to fulfill her utmost desire.
If you’re not familiar with That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, originally named Tensei Shitara Suraimu Datta Ken in Japan and familiarly nicknamed TenSura, was born as a light novel series by Fuse in 2013.
It then spawned a bunch of manga and a long-running TV anime series. Now, fans will be able to enjoy it in mobile JRPG form, and it appears that the production values are quite high, from what we’ve seen so far.
It’ll be interesting to see if this will mark the successful break into the worldwide mobile market that Bandai Namco appears to have been hunting for a while.
