At Sakura Con, Yen Press announced three new light novel licenses:
- The Saga of Evil Tanya — by Carlo Zen (art by Shinobu Shinotsuki)
- Regarding Reincarnating as a Slime — by Fuse (art by Mitz Vah)
- So I’m a Spider, So What? — by Okina Baba (art by Asahiro Kakashi)
As far as I can tell, there weren’t any release windows announced yet. All three titles initially began as web novels in Japan. The Saga of Evil Tanya recently had an anime adaptation, which you can watch streaming on Crunchyroll. Also note that the manga for Evil Tanya was announced to be localized by Yen Press.
There were also two Sword Art Online manga licensed: Sword Art Online Calibur, and Sword Art Online: Alternative – Gun Gale Online. No word on the Gun Gale light novels getting licensed — perhaps those will come later.

Regarding Reincarnating as a Slime Synopsis

So I’m a Spider, So What? Synopsis
I used to be a normal high school girl but in the blink of an eye, I woke up in a place I’d never seen before and—and I was reborn as a spider?!
