Ragnarok X: Next Generation has collaborated with a popular anime to host an event called Slime’s Adventures, where players will meet the infamous Rimuru Tempest.
Ragnarok X: Next Generation, also known as ROX, is a classic role-playing game which forms part of the Ragnarok franchise. The game has maintained the spirit of the well-loved, classic Ragnarok Online. However, it introduces a lot of fresh features and innovative gameplay mechanics that a player would not find in the classic version.
ROX invites players to Midgard’s fantasy world, to prevent an evil presence from destroying the world. Players are able to get lost in the bright and luxuriant world with the mesmerizing art style, which captures the real charm of the game.
Players will have the opportunity to create their own digital avatars to enter the world. These avatars can be customized by equipping different costumes, gear and accessories. It is important to note that players should constantly upgrade their characters with better equipment, as it will allow them to proceed further in the game.
ROX offers players various activities to participate in, including fishing, cooking, gardening, board missions, chamber of commerce (CoC) missions and group activities. Additionally, players can tame a monster into becoming a pet, participate in different in-game events and complete multiple quests.
Ragnarok X: Next Generation has recently collaborated with the popular anime series, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, to launch an event. The event is titled Slime’s Adventures and will begin on Friday, 10 September 2021. The event will run for a month, before concluding on 10 October 2021.
The collaboration will bring the world of Tensura into the world of Midgard. The event will also feature multiple challenges and rewards for players who dare to join. The official trailer revealed some guest characters that will appear during the event, such as Souei, Shion, Benimaru and Rimuru Tempest.
Players will be able to obtain the guest characters’ costumes, pets, mounts and headgear during the event. Slime’s Adventure will also open up an event exclusive storyline, so players can expect a much bigger world to explore when the event officially begins.

Rimuru Tempest’s appearance
Tempest is able to change form. Even though he is a Slime, he is able to mimic other creatures, including humans.
|Slime form||Human form|
|He was initially a blue-bodied Slime, but after becoming a Demon Slime, he turned silver with streaks of gold.||In human form, Tempest has blue-silver hair. Unlike his other mimics, Rimuru hair changes colour to one similar to his original slime body.|
|His body is androgynous. This means that anything he mimics takes on an androgynous form of the creature. While bearing resemblances to the individual creatures.||His fine motor capabilities improve when he is in human form. He also finds it easier to move in human form than in his Slime form.|
|Tempest’s mass grows over time. This allows him to accommodate larger mimicry forms without using extra magic.||In his human form, Tempest wears a black fur coat and a scarf. Underneath, he wears a kimono and pants.|
Rimuru Tempest’s personality
Rimuru has a quirky personality and a kind heart. Even though he wants to avoid troublesome situations, he works very hard when there is a task needed to be taken care of. Rimuru has the heart of a hardworking salaryman and a beloved senior co-worker. He often has a hard time rejecting someone if they ask him for help.
Rimuru Tempest and ROX
The official ROX website revealed that the event will introduce two new bosses, Veldora Tempest and Orc Disaster. It is believed that Veldora was sealed in by a Hero in the past. However, the storm dragon came across a Slime called Rimuru. They now share the last name, Tempest.
The website also revealed that players will have the opportunity to obtain some of the guest characters’ gear. This means that players will be able to obtain Rimuru Tempest’s infamous Demon Lord costume, headgear and bat wings. If players obtain and equip all three items, they will look exactly like Rimuru Tempest.
In addition to Rimuru Tempest, players will be able to obtain other character’s head gear, costumes and accessories. The other characters include: Souei, Shion, Benimaru, Diablo and Shuna. Players will also be able to get a Slime pet and a Ranga mount.
