MAGES. will release SINce Memories: Off the Starry Sky for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021. This romance visual novel will add new features while still carrying the concept of the preceding Memories Off series, which depicts romance as not just about sharing fun but also full of pain and sadness.

The illustrator U35 (pronounced Umiko) designed the characters in this title. The player will assume the role of a man named Junya Mizumoto. This game will have five main heroines that Junya can date with:
- Chihaya Hojo, a 20 years-old who likes to tour restaurants
- Azusa Satomi, who prefers to watch live idol videos
- Hinata Ise, a 20 years-old who likes everything related to cosplay
- Yuriko Ohyama, a 20 years-old who loves to visit antique markets and art museums
- Chunyu Huang, a 21 years-old Chinese woman who is interested in esports, stock markets, and investments.
The Memories Off producer Kazuhiro Ichikawa first revealed SINce Memories at the series’ 20th-anniversary live stream held in June 2020. Back then, only the title was revealed without any platforms or character artwork. The Memories Off titles are known to take place within the same universe, with characters from previous titles making appearances in the later games. However, Ichikawa noted that this title will have no relation to the Memories Off series.
All mainline Memories Off titles will be available very soon on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch with the release of Memories Off Historia, which compiles the first seven games, on March 25, 2021. The eighth and final mainline title of the prior series, Memories Off -Innocent Fille-, is immediately available on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
SINce Memories: Off the Starry Sky will be released on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021 in Japan and Asia with Japanese and Chinese subtitles.
