The Irregular at Magic High School: Reloaded Memory is a mobile game with turn-based RPG battles and visual novel elements. The visual novel elements consist of 2D hand drawn sprites and backgrounds, whereas the RPG turn-based sequences feature 3D models. The game is based on the anime adaptation of The Irregular at Magic High School that aired in 2022, with the anime itself being originally a web comic that was later adapted into a series of light novels.
The Irregular at Magic High School: Reloaded Memory is available on Android and iOS devices in Japan until August 14, 2023, when it will shut down.
