The previously announced Stand My Heroes: Warmth of Memories OVA special is slated to premiere in Japan sometime in 2023. The production team for the project has also released a new key visual featuring the central characters. 

The Stand My Heroes OVA will adapt an additional character event route centered on Narumi Seo, which launched in the original game in April 2018. As a result, it will feature characters from the Seo Research Lab who did not appear in the 12-episode Stand My Heroes: Piece of Truth anime series.

The voice cast for the OVA consists of Misato Murai as Rei Izumi, Kenn as Shion Hinata, Souma Saitou as Isagi Houshou, Hiro Shimono as Hikaru Kawai, Yoshimasa Hosoya as Ikuto Saotome, and Takehito Koyasu as Narumi Seo.
