The original character Slimeko from the Overlord: Mass for the Dead mobile RPG is leaving the world of Yggdrasil to launch her virtual YouTuber career.
Exys Inc announced on Monday that the character made her debut on the official Overlord YouTube channel this weekend and has already accumulated over 60,000 views. In the video, Slimeko discusses the appeal of the game (from a Slime's perspective of course) and will star in other videos to share developments and news in the game.
Overlord: Mass for the Dead will be free to play with in-app purchases. The website is currently holding a preregistration campaign and already has 250,000 pre-registrations. Music duo OxT will perform the game's theme song "Mass for the Dead." The game is slated to launch this year.
