If you are not in the mood to watch anime, video games will be a good choice. For fans of the isekai anime, there are many games with a setting that closely resembles a fascinating reincarnation story that players can role-play to experience.
5. Star Ocean 2
Star Ocean 2 isn’t an isekai anime, but it does contain many elements in common with recent isekai favorites. The main character of the game is Claude C. Kenni, a member of the galactic space force. Due to an incident during a mission, Claude is mistakenly transported to the planet Expel. There, Claude was considered the legendary “Hero of Light” because of his unique weapon. Although uncertain about what is to come, Claude helps a woman named Rena save the planet Expel.
4. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Final Fantasy Tactics does not have a sequel, although it is considered one of the best Final Fantasy titles ever. However, it became an expansion to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
In the expansion, a bunch of characters from St. Ivalice is taken to another Ivalice after they find the magic book. Though their lives get better, the group still has to decide whether they will stay in this new Ivalice or return to their homeland.
3. Xenoblade Chronicles X
The Xenoblade Chronicles titles all have strange stories, but Xenoblade Chronicles X in particular begins with all of humanity reincarnating to an alien world, after the Earth was destroyed. On this new planet, their goal is to build a new world so that all inhabitants, regardless of race, can live together in peace. The main character is an unnamed boy who has lost his memories but wishes to help the BLADE organization. Like the other isekai worlds, he finds himself constantly growing in strength and fame not because of his true abilities but because so many people love him.
2. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox
Falcom has been monetizing the Ys brand for years. They made a fictional anime based on this game and even remake it many times to attract new fans. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is a game that can reach new fans very quickly. Although Adol is a legendary adventurer, isekai fans are still easily caught up in the game’s plot. The main character they play will travel to a place called Prison Island and possess the special power of Monstrum, making him a rare person capable of fighting evil, protecting the peace on the island.
1. Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel
Trails of Cold Steel could be even better if it were an isekai anime. The main character, named Rean Schwarzer, is a character that closely resembles the role model of the main characters in isekai. Rean is good at everything, from academia to swordsmanship, even controlling giant robots. He even has a mysterious role throughout the game’s story. This shows his importance even more. The game also has a dating element, so the female characters seem to fall at the feet of Rean.
