Bandai Namco teases Veldora AR from That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
While plans have gone south with this little project Bandai Namco has revealed a new promotional for their upcoming AR project featuring Veldora Tempest from the anime series That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime.
The original plan was to use the Veldora AR or Augmented Reality gimmick for AnimeJapan event which was cancelled due to the Corona Virus spread.
But fun can still persevere in the home, and the anime has launched a new campaign for fans to summon Veldora into their own homes. Bandai Namco Arts posted a promotional video for the campaign on Friday, which wryly points out the last-minute change of plans.
check out the video below:
An AR camera will be available through the campaign’s website from March 21 to 31. Fans are encouraged to take photos of Veldora and post them on Twitter with the hashtag #自宅にヴェルドラ (Veldora in the home). Five submissions will be selected for a prize, and the posters will receive a shikishi illustrated by manga artist Taiki Kawakami, signed by Rimuru voice actress Miho Okasaki. The person who posts the coolest photo, the MVP (Most Veldora Photo), will receive a shikishi illustrated by Kawakami, with signatures from voice actors Miho Okasaki, Makoto Furukawa (Benimaru), and Tomoaki Maeno (Veldora), plus theme song vocalist TRUE. Winners will be contacted through Twitter DM, so they’ll need to be following the anime’s official Twitter account to be eligible for prizes.
Only people living in Japan are eligible for prizes, but the AR camera should be open to anyone who wants to summon Veldora into their homes.
