During this year’s Medarot Day celebrations, Imagineer announced the release date for Medarot S: Unlimited Nova. The first smartphone RPG in the franchise will become available to download for Android and iOS devices in Japan starting January 23, 2020. The game is up for pre-order on Google Play and iTunes.

The live-stream, which was co-hosted by Ikki voice actress Michiru Yamazaki and Arika’s Eri Sendai, revealed additional information about future Medarot events and products:

  • From the beginning of December, “Robo Robo Team” members will take over the official Medarot S Twitter account to solicit game ideas from fans.
  • In collaboration with NTT Resonant’s chat AI goo botmaker, the Medarot Memory Restoration Project will be launched. Players take on the role of a researcher at the Medarot World Association, who discovers a severely damaged Medal. By chatting with the bot, its memory may eventually be restored. The Memory Loss Medarot will become available on LINE beginning January 27, 2020. Codenamed Kū, it will eventually appear in Unlimited Nova. For more information visit the botmaker website.

Available in May 2020 and retailing for 8,800 yen, the release will feature reprints of the original card game from 2000. It will also feature cards for Medarotters and Medarots introduced after the game originally ended. 72 cards will be included alongside a booklet, binder and special box.

    The official Medarotsha Twitter account had previously teased that the OCG would be revived, courtesy of two Medarot S: Unlimited Nova tie-ins.
