Opening Movie for Re:ZERO Smartphone Game Released

Anime News

The SEGA official Youtube channel has released last Wednesday the opening movie for the upcoming Re:ZERO smartphone game entitled Re:ZERO – Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – Lost in Memories. Check it out here!

In addition to the opening movie, SEGA also released a video they called “new chapter digest compilation”. You can check it out here.

The game is set for a summer 2020 release.

The game is free-to-play, with the option to buy in-game items. WHITE FOX is announced to be producing the opening animation of the game, with Kenichi Kawamura in charge of storyboarding and directing the animation. Kawamura worked as storyboard artist of Re:ZERO’s first season. The game project is supervised by Tappei Nagatsuki, the light novel’s author himself. It will be available for iOS and Android users.

Players will be playing as Subaru in the game and will follow the events in the anime. There is also an option to make a different choice “at that time”, thus leading to a different storyline. The game will also feature a new original story.

Re:ZERO’s second season premiered last July 8. An edited first season—dubbed Re:ZERO -Starting Life in a New World – Director’s Cut— premiered on January 1. Edits to the 25-episode season 1 include additional footage and a reworking of the episodes to make it fit into a one-hour timeslot.

Re:ZERO – Starting Life in A New World - is a light novel series written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka. The story revolves around hikikomori (i.e., social recluse) Subaru Natsuki, who suddenly finds himself transported into another world during a trip to the nearest convenience store. Once there, he realizes that he gets “resurrected” each time he dies. An anime adaptation of the series by White Fox aired from April to September 2016, which eventually became hugely popular to fans because of its interesting characters and unique take on the isekai premise.
