The Irregular at Magic High School Reloaded Memory mobile game from Square Enix has been planned for an early Summer 2022 release. Earlier, we had reported on a “Winter 2022” release, but it seems that whatever issues they had been having have been smoothing out.
The game has since achieved over 300,000 pre-registrations, and looks to be on its way to 400,000. The rewards are premium currency and tickets for the gacha, presumably to be further added on as they hit stretch goals.
The Irregular at Magic High School Reloaded Memory features the characters and their respective voice actors from the first 2 seasons of the anime reprising their roles when the game hopefully launches in the summer. It also introduces a new original character, Hina Takayama, voiced by Yuki Kawahara.
The story of the original series revolves around Tatsuya Shiba, the main protagonist who acts as a bodyguard to his sister Miyuki Shiba who is a candidate to succeed the leadership of the Yotsuba clan, one of the Ten Master Clans that govern Japan’s magicians. They enroll into First High School which segregates its students based on their magical abilities. Miyuki is enrolled as a first course student and is viewed as one of the best students, while Tatsuya is in the second course and considered to be magically inept.
However, Tatsuya’s technical knowledge, combat abilities, and unique magic techniques cause people to view him as an irregular to the school’s standardized rankings.
