That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories Release Date, Trailer And Gameplay - What We Know So Far

When it comes to Isekai anime, one of the most popular titles is "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime." It's a good time to be a fan of this series, too, since fans recently got amazing news about a new movie and a third season of the anime series is all but inevitable. If you've enjoyed watching Rimuru discover his new powers on his adventure, then get excited to play through the adventure and more in the upcoming game, "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories."

The "Nation Building 3D Battle RPG" game," as the official website describes the game, will see the anime's original voice actors returning to bring the story to life. Additionally, the original author of the light novels, Fuse, will be involved with crafting new story content specifically for the game.

Despite the game not being out yet, there's a good bit of information on the official website that gives fans hints about to expect when they are transported to this strange new fantasy world. In fact, there are already incentives to pre-register, as players that pre-register will get bonus rewards. And here's the best part: Fans shouldn't have to wait too long for the game to be released.

When is the release date for That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories?

According to the game's official website, "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories" will be released at some point in 2021. Considering how late in the year the game was announced, that means the wait shouldn't be too painful. With the movie adaptation of the hit anime won't be making its debut in theaters until late 2022, it seems like this game is releasing at the perfect time. Now fans can fill that long gap in the story by playing as some of their favorite characters.

"That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories" will be releasing on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. However, the website for the game has pointed out that it won't be playable on all devices that use these stores. This likely means that players with older devices and operating systems might have to sit this battle out.

Is there a Trailer for That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories?

When "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Isekai Memories" was announced, a trailer was published as well. The trailer showed off some of the major combat moves in the game while also showing some fan-favorite characters like Milim Nava. The anime's unique visual aesthetic looks to be recreated in the new game, so fans of the series should feel like they're diving right into familiar territory. The trailer also offered a few quick glimpses at gameplay, including footage of Rimura running around and interacting with characters, as well as a peek at the title's city-building mechanics. 

What wasn't shown in the trailer is how the game's battle system will work. With such an action-packed series like "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime" making the jump to games, it stands to reason that players should expect to thrown down with all types of enemies.

What is the gameplay like in That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime: Isekai Memories?

According to the game's official website, "Isekai Memories" will feature five game modes once it is released, which the official website called "systems." The first system allows you to build up your nation, creating villages that can evolve into towns and cities as you get further into the game.

The next system seems to be some type of character-leveling mode where you can fight special enemies to upgrade your characters. If you're confused about what to do in-game, then the third system is a type of tutorial/FAQ that will help guide you. Then there's the fourth system, which will let players interact with their character through gift-giving and other activities.

The site also discussed other aspects of gameplay, like the fact that players will be able to obtain new characters and even alternate outfits. It's not clear yet whether this means it will be a gacha game like "Genshin Impact," or if players will obtain the characters over the course of the story.

Then there's the battle system, which the website mentions will be carried out through cards and is something "that players of all skill levels can easily master." Considering no cards were shown in the trailer, it's unclear how exactly this particular system will work. However, the reassurance that anyone can pick up and play should be exciting for fans of the show who may be more casual gamers.
