Frontier Works has just confirmed that its upcoming game, based on the The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? light novel series, which goes with the working title The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? ～Another Reincarnation～ will launch on 28 May 2020.
Once again to recap, the light novel series is super popular in Japan where it sold over 2.5mn copies, and will be getting an anime adaptation on 2 April 2020. The synopsis as follows, courtesy of MyAnimeList:
Shingo Ichinomiya, a 25-year-old man working at a firm company, while thinking of tomorrow’s busy working day, goes to sleep. However, when he woke up, he found himself in a room unknown to him and realized that he is inside a 6-years-old body, taking over his body and mind. He soon learns from the memories of the boy that the boy was born as the youngest child of a poor noble family living in a back country. Having no administrative skill, he can’t do anything to manage the vast land his family has. Fortunately, he is blessed with a very rare talent, the talent of magic. Unfortunately, while his talent could bring prosperity to his family, in his situation it only brought disaster. This is the story of the boy, Wendelin Von Benno Baumeister, opening his own path in a harsh world.
The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? ～Another Reincarnation～ is being developed as a simulation RPG, and will feature an original story under the supervision of the novel’s author Y.A. Meanwhile, the light novel’s illustrator, Fuzichoco, will be handling character designs for the game, which is a definite plus.
